I was thinking I could put this in a drawing. Then if someone wanted to build one, it would be easy for them to do.

Today's go at it. It does a really good job if you think things through. As far as the neck ache goes, the armrests seem to help this dramatically. Also, the spinner knob on the steering wheel really pays off. Much better than being covered with snow from the blower when the wind shifts.

I'll put it on my list of things to do when it's warmer.

I will try this by description.

Bucket width 42"
Bucket Height at back 10"
Bucket Depth 17"
Taper at front of Bucket 4"
Lip overhanging top of Bucket 2"

Clearance of frame around Bucket at back 1" (so it can tip)
Clearance of frame around Bucket at side 1/8"

On frame spread of 3 point bottom links there is a width between of 18"
From frame to top link is 20"
The hinge point on the Bucket is 5 1/2" from the back of Bucket and 2" from bottom.


Hope this help you guys.
Reg

Oh yeah there is a 2" strap going around the bottom of the Bucket lip to reinforce it.

Thanks! What is the hinge made of? Round stock? When it warms up some, could you post a few closeup pics of it? The latch mechanism would be one I'd like to see. What is the frame made of?

 

Is there a manual on this?

 

Remembered the pics on the previous page! I'll download them and enlarge if possible.

I googled Scoop Tote and found a set of pics. I have put those all together into a PDF and uploaded it here. There was several accessories available with this also.

I think yours may be the Model 251 from the pics.

Thanks Kenny! Yes round stock I believe and angle iron frame. Opened your download and mine is a 250 I'm pretty sure. Love this thing. About ready to sell my Blower if it handles a deep snow as well as I think. Can't even see a need for that front blade.

I think you may be right on the 250 model. If the pin holes are 5/8", it would be a 250. The 251 is Cat 1 capable, so would have those pin holes!

I like the 300 model as it is wider.

What I am thinking is to build one at the 300 width (50") with the 250/251 depth and height dimensions.

That way it would be out past the back tires width wise, yet not be so big to be too heavy loaded. That would work out to about 3.75 cu. ft.

I've started a Sketchup drawing of the tote. I will start a thread in the Implements forum.

I built a rear Scoop Tote last year. There is pictures in Attachments in the Garden Tractor Implement Forum.  http://gardentractor...chments/page-16

The I built is different from the Scoop Tote in the latch. I tried a idea for the latch that seems to work good. I also set it up to work on a sleeve hitch & connects using 2 hitch pins. The bucket is from something my dad got several years ago & had been just laying around until I put this together. I do not think that I have any of the paper work from when I built it. Most times when I build something any paper work or note is usually not readable because of dirt & other ideas that I use during time I am making it. The only pictures that I have are the ones in the previous post. At this time I do not have access to it for measuring because it is at my moms place. That place is actually closer to you Reg then it is to me. I know that you know where Meredosia is.

Dosh! Have a couple of cousins that live there and one of my church buddies. Went to school less than 10 miles away at Bluffs. What's your Mom's name? I know a few additional folks there.
