Went and picked up the bucket today. Box was little rough, had me worried, but is OK. Not much to hurt on this, just wondered about hardware loss, but was fine. Have teeth with it, not on yet, but bucket has good front edge, might try that first. Teeth aren't really much, not sure they are gonna be that good. Brought it in house to look at and some assembly for now, Mama loved that!

GL, how wide is the bucket? Which tractor will get the bucket and does it hook right up or do you have to make a mount?

Grumpy,

Well it was either in the house or out in the cold. There was no room left in the shop when I left Sat.

Good luck!

Are you going to Auburn next weekend?

Chuck

This is a 44" bucket.  Turned up on end and used dollie to drag in, probly same way out now. Will be going into the house garage till warmer. I don't have the mounts for any tractor, going to have to do that yet. Was thinking for the Big PK, but might look at the new Speedex I got. I do have a blade for Speedex tho, should probly stick to the PK.

 

Chuckbob,  had no real plan, thinking about it. Rollie mentioned it, expecting him to call and see if I'm going? Otherwise probly not. Been about 4 yrs since I went. Last couple in Coliseum in Fort, and never went, didn't seem like right place for a tractor show to me.

I bought mine from a guy that had it on atv but never actually used it, so I got the ATV mount, cut and modified it, works great.

Not really. Didn't fit like I wanted, kinda short for lift. Winch sorta worked, yet mount seemed weak. Was trying to use quik-tach with it, yet should be better with diff longer mount. Was thinking of getting out again and try do-over, just not doing it.

I had 36" of lift with mine using the modified ATV mount, and the winch worked like a charme. Mine had an opposed twin Briggs which gave me room in the front to bolt a tail pieace from a Craftsman frame across the front frame ahead of the engine to bolt the winch to, and I used a pulley block at the bucket.

I am considering buying one for my New Holland S14. Looks to be a decent bucket and most everyone that has one, likes it.

Glgrumpy, have you considered making the arms on the bucket's mount longer to get more lift? I already know I will have to make that mod when I get my own Swisher bucket.

If you can find the universal ATV mount, you can cut and mod it to fit about any tractor, that's what I did and I still part of the mount that I'm going to use on other projects.

This shows the mounting kit, and it can be adjusted and modified almost infinitely.
