JohnnyBucket Mounting

Recommended Posts

HubbardRA
My friend Ryan recently bought a JohnnyBucket from ebay. This one however was set up for a Cub Cadet. We made a simple mount that attached to the front axle of his 3410 and then welded the Cub Cadet mounts to it. It works fine. The following are pictures of the mount and then the bucket in action. We also lengthened the lift rod to fit by cutting it and welding a piece of pipe over it. Also don't blame me for the welds that are visible on top of the mount. I was letting Ryan try his hand at welding on those two welds. I did the other side and welded on the mounts.

I didn't know if it was possible to switch it around or not. Without a counterweight, or electric lift, this will build some biceps! :O

Nice work Rod. ^ Requires a late model rock shaft in order to switch/reverse the action of the rear lift. Think there was a kit available to convert the early rock shafts for the HD tiller. Rod was/is working on a home brew kit. I'm still waiting for the one he promised me for my 7013S. :D

Nice work Rod. Now for the criticism:O:D It looks like the angles are a pit off. What I mean is, if you had one solid mount, the bucket could lift higher. Here is how I made mine.


I made mine longer than the original so it would lift higher. I also put two lift points, so when the 3012H project is complete, it will have two lift rods to lift it evenly. I do think your work is very well done. I just wanted to give you another option.

Elon, Would happen to have a set of plans/drawings for the one you made? Thanks,
I don't but I can take the camera out and a piece of paper and take some measurements. I'll post them some time today/tonight.

Guys, I realize that there are improvements that could be made to the hitch. I did it for a friend. I charged him nothing. We did it it in a couple hours. What else can I say. About the adapter that Roy mentioned, I need to take out the single type from one of my tractors and replace it with a double lift setup. After that I will have one to line the adapter up on. Then I can finish the adapters. I hope to do this soon. I may make a few to sell, since I am retired now and have a little more time to work on things. Also, my main point of this post was to show others that sometimes it is quite easy to convert from one brand to another. This mount was much easier to make than totally building a simplicity type mount. It pivots on its own, just like on the Cadet. Not much to making the mount. Elon and I both make our own hardware, so we could argue for hours about what is the best way. I did this for the newbies who have never tried any of this before. I just wanted to show them that converting an implement from one brand to another does not have to be overly complicated.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
