Nice job Jonnie. Any chance of a pic of the backplate ? I'm interesed to see how you've attached the Q/A brackets.

Fendtkin has a bucket just like this, except his is made of woven reeds.

clucking bell, johnnieboy, thas a bukit and a harf. Blimey, you cud use that in a quarry. Still, build it once, build it right. my mate Ben made a grain dozer for the JCB - it's got 5m reach, and hellif that hint got a lot of steel in it, I rekun it must weigh about 1 1/2 tonnes, nd you want to be careful when you turn with it. It's so long that the front blade whips round fairly if your not careful. A quick dab on the crowd lever and you have the roof out. Still, its a great tool and allows them to heap wheat up in a gretol pile, about 8m high. Jobs a goodun. Might even take a piccy and post it on hear

Did you have much bother working out the dump and crowd angles or did you just use the old bucket as a pattern ?

Its nice seeing a farm turn out high quality gear.
At least you know its designed for what you want.

Had a bucket made for me, a cross between a dirt bucket and a muck fork. It was to go on the Fastrac. It was so i could round horse stables and clear up there muck.
time it was built it was to heavy for the JCB
