I have been watching this bucket for years waiting for it to maybe purchase...then I get the call. He is selling out his attachments and a clean 149 w/44" deck. Also all of his Brinly equipment ( U adapter, plow, disc & furrower), IH plow and his #40 boxblade copy like mine (his is in primer). I brought home his JB Jr & a set of IH weights.

Also I will fabricate a lift bracket for the bucket similar to the one I built for the blade.

I've been toying with building one of those! Gotta find the metal first!

Is that the electric lift backwards? Nice bracket looks like you did a good job there!

It is a Duff Norton 500 lb max lift...clone to a narrow frame lift. I'm hoping it will function with the bucket and a load. Also I did a 1" front spindle conversion several yrs ago.

nice score on all those attachments.

 

I have a homemade "JB" with a winch lift. Yea, it may not be a true FEL, but it's moved tons and tons of rock/mulch/dirt/gravel that I would have had to do with a shovel and wheel barrow.

Checked out your version too! I'm like you TAHOE... just needing a tote for outback on our trails we added and chores around the house. I have been using the Mule for some trail maintenance but this tote and the blade should work out as planned!

I have got to use it some. Replaced the original rope and using pulleys & snatchblock for the return to locking the trip. Using the original lift rod, no time for the conversion as of yet. To scoop and tote is awesome!
