Yeah, but I do not hear the guys with Johnny buckets talking about that? Is it Tahoe that has posted pictures of his scoop on the craftsman?
Well, someone remembered me ,
and it's a SEARS
I do have the home made front dump bucket, it actually looks built like Kenny's drawings. I bought it from a couple locals, mine was built using all scrap pieces and cobbled together. You can see between the 2nd and 3rd pics, I had to do some cutting and re-welding to make it work on my set up. I cut off a lot of junk they had on it to make it work better and it's an auto dump when it is lifted high enough to trip the lever on the upper winch arm. The PO's had a cable they pulled to trip it. The pivot has been a 3/8 or 1/2 bolt and I have beat on it pretty hard the last couple years and it's still going. Mine is lifted by a winch so no down pressure, but I can get it to dig a little if I hang some weight on frame. Sure has saved my back hauling mulch, rock,gravel, dirt, and goat poop!
Everyone complains about steering with one of these. Guess most of them have never driven an old car without power steering. Get it moving some and it steers okay, little heavy, but I don't try to turn when it's sitting still. Some thrust bearing may help a little, just haven't done it. Would love a true FEL, but this works for now.
