More I been thinking about this the more I like it. Be perfect for spreading material fairly even as you dump. Now for how to run two cyl. off the Landlord hydro.Hmmmmmmmm, provided my front tires ever show up so I can use it. MPH

I have a 444 internation orchard tractor that has a loader on it. It has two valves to shut on and off to make the loader work.. One is built into the tractor from the factory to turn off the flow to the three point hitch, the other was put in line by the loader installer and is just a simple in line water valve. To run the loader, close the hitch and open the inline to the loader. To run the hitch, close the one in line and open the one to the hitch. Sounds crude, but it works.

That looks like a fun piece of equipment! I might have to look at installing a second valve on my B-12 hydro lift project that I,m putting together and modify my blade for it. Thanks for the link Dale.

Never thought of that approch Joe, would't be the 'cats meow' but it sure would work. Discussed the set-up with my brother on the phone and he said there has been a '4 way' bucket around for small loaders for some time.. MPH

Marty, your brother is right. They are called "4 in 1 Buckets" and they really add versatility to a loader. Here's a photo of my Case "4 in 1" biting onto an I beam to do some grading. [img]/club2/attach/dutch/20-I-beam.jpg[/img]

Marty, Lifting that I beam is child's play for that bucket. Real work is when it bites into a good sized stump and I pour on the power to the bucket lift until the stump POPS out of the ground along with a 20 foot root spread.
