If your tractor has a hydro trans you "might" be able to use the pump as the hydraulic source for the bucket. With a manual trans you will have to install a pump, valves, and reservoir (not an easy or inexpensive job). That's why there is interest in the JohnnyBucket (no hydraulics).

Johnny bucket does not have the features that I am looking for. It looks to be a well made tool but I am looking for hydrolics. As for pumps and valves, I am not too concerned with that becasue I have an outlet for used hyrolic gear. I am more concerned about the transmission and the wear and tear the 'pushing' will put on the tractor. Not to mention operation. using your foot to engage the clutch a versus using your hand to move the shuttle control while operationg the bucket kind of scenario...

Either trans should work fine and hold up the same. I'm partial to hydro drive because I believe they're easier on the rest of the tractor, and the operator, plus I'm lazy.
