I found somewhere to get metal bent. Now to find a large enough piece to work.

Kenny are you bending the bucket with an angle or a radius ?

Just an angle. I don't think they can do a radius. But the machine will bend 1/2" metal!

Did you ask?

No, I didn't. But it's a freebie, so I'm not pressing my luck. I imagine it will be a small radius as with any bend.

I have an original JRCO Scoop Tote which came with my Wheel Horse C-160 Automatic. Mounts to sleeve hitch in rear, which is hydraulic-powered on this tractor. I built a wooden extension to it which about doubles the base square-footage, so I can use it to tote around more, lighter stuff. I don't have any land to work at the moment.

 

It turns out that with my wooden extension, it works fairly well as a little tow-truck for lighter tractors.

I think I have a couple different YT videos which show it in some detail. I think some other company was more recently manufacturing something nearly identical or identical and they call it a Johnny Bucket. Clarification appreciated.

Another video where I focus on the Wheel Horse hydraulic sleeve hitch, but I show the JRCO Scoop Tote quite a bit too.

 

 

Another few pics showing the Scoop Tote on the Wheel Horse, acting as a tow truck. Being towed is a very rare LT 10/36 (bout a 1980.)
