JBucket capacity?

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody with a johnny bucket-I was really loading it up today-rocks and heavy wet clay.The Sov seemed to handle it ok,but I have the 42" bucket,and I started to wonder just HOW much I can lift and move,and what is going to go first if I try to haul too much? I know I am exceeding the recommended weight,but it's almost like a 'challenge' to see what it will do...tell me when to quit,PLEASE! dogman (check out my goats and bucket in the JBjr user gallery).

Keep those BGB bolts tight and check them often or you might end up breaking out the casting. I made support plates for my 3310 that run from the electric lift mounting holes all the way back to the tranny to bridge this well known "weakest link" of these tractors. I think 300 pounds or so is about all you want to do with a JBJr.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
