    High Volume Bucket

    I was thinking how it would be nice to have a bigger bucket for my FEL (H180 on a 4066R). The HD bucket is great for digging, but, most of the time I am filling the bucket with manure or some other debris. It seems to fill fast.

    Anyone have a high volume bucket? If so, what do you think about it? My dealer has quoted me a price of $750 for a 72" high volume bucket. I have the JD quick attach so no chance of buying a skid steer bucket.

    Since you have the H180 perhaps a skid steer adapter plate and skid steer high volume bucket would be suitable. After all, you all looking for volume and not weight so you could probably handle the extra weight of the adapter. I would think the 4066R/H180 would make the combo more suitable, unlike the smaller tractors/loaders that can't handle the weight penalty.

    Also, don't dismiss adding the JD quick attach hooks and lock pins to another bucket. You can get a PAIR of JD quick attach mounting plates from Artillian for $149. Just weld 'em on and your good to go.

    Titan makes one:

    Deere makes one too but it is pricey:

    I just looked on Titan Attachments site, it seems the price from your dealer isn't really that bad. You can buy the bucket for a couple of hundred cheaper at Titan buy by the time you either buy the JD to skid steer adapter or buy the the JD hook and pin plate you are right there with the dealers price or higher. Plus the bucket from the dealer is ready to go any time, if you were to use the adapter you would have to put that on just for that one bucket.

    I'm pretty sure that the high volume buckets are for the 500 and global carriers. Maybe i'm out of the loop, but as far as i know deere doesn't make one for the JDQA system.

    Update

    After thinking about it overnight, I decided to go ahead and buy it from the JD Dealer for $750. I probably won't get a chance to buy it this low again.

    I have four horses - with the new high volume bucket I should be able to clean all 4 stalls in one pass. With the HD bucket I have to make two trips.

    Now, how to break the news to my wife ? My early Christmas present?
