Dump bucket

Recommended Posts

Johnny Bucket is a front bucket built for a variety of tractors. Some people have been using the term to mean any bucket that attaches to the front of the tractor designed to transport materials.

A front end loader can also transport materials, but a FEL will also dig and load a truck. A Johnny Bucket does not dig very well and can only be lifted about 6 inches off the ground.

My friend picked it up for me, he was a lot closer. It's in the back of his truck now. I will take some pics this evening when I get off.

Will use a cheap winch from HF to raise and lower.(someone here has pics, I am going to steal his ideal!)

I looked on their website, but couldn't find them listed. They must be discontinuing it or something.

AC710

I modified one of the sears buckets and use it on my 710 with a winch. The OEM version is an engineer student's dream (nightmare) that raises the bucket about 3 inches with a very complex long-handled mechanism. I have some pix and drawings if they would be helpful.
