Winter project for my JBJR

Recommended Posts

I was on the johnnybuckets web page looking at a tooth bar for myself when i noticed that they now have a power dump option for the jbjr using a linear actuator! The one thing i could complain about with my jbjr is those darn ropes, i use it on two different machines and re-adjusting the ropes is a P.I.T.A. Do any of you folks have this "power dump" option? If you could measure the travel of the actuator so i can get the correct size. John does sell the retro-kit for $200.00 and change, but i think i can make one and save a little $ thanks

I got one on an older Cub Cadet. Mine was the first he made with the "power lift", no ropes to lift, One rope to dump. I prefer the ability to lift with the linear actuator and dump with the rope. Sometimes the bucket does not want to swing closed so I just lower the bucket until it snaps back into position locking in place. I guess the best option would be both.$$$$$$ Mike

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
