Johnny Bucket in Snow

Recommended Posts

Les
For a long time I have been thinking about getting a johnny bucket. John claims that they work good in snow. Can the bucket actually do anything in snow or are them Hooters girls influencing me too much?

les i have a jbjr for my 2 sovereigns and i find that it works quite well in the snow, i have had many opportunities to try it out this year and have had no problems using it in the snow, the only thing i would caution you on is that this bucket has no type of spring loaded cutting edge like a the dozer blades that many of us use in the snow, So if you are using it in unfamilliar areas and hit somthing going at any kind of speed you run the risk of damaging the jbjr or machine. i have no reservations on reccomending the jbjr john s makes a good product and is a great guy to deal with. good luck john b

John, are you just pushing snow with the jbjr flipped over? Can you break drifts with it? Does it work at all to lift and carry snow? My thought was to mount a jbsr on my Kubota 4x4 and using it as a backup to my Simp. blower. Sometimes I get ice and a blade works real nice and it can be a pain changing from blower to blade in the winter.

      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
