Buford Bucket

Recommended Posts


I had a delivery today to Wheel Horse guru Mike Martino. I delivered to him once before and got to see his collection. This time, in the driveway was a JD318 with what looked at first like a Johnny Bucket. It turned out to be a Buford Bucket and don't think for a minute that they are nearly the same. What an amazing little unit! It just attaches to the front but can lift all of 3 feet and maybe closer to 4. Bucket dumps down to near vertical. I don't imagine it would have much weight capacity but the engineering is amazing. The guy has a day job and manufactures these on the side and is 6 months backordered.

These are made for JD only but I would think it wouldn't be THAT hard to adapt to a large frame Simp/AC. Dave

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
