    Whats the 53" bucket really measure?

    Ok. So i bought a heavy hitch toothbar.. long story short i bought a 52" bar. For my 53" bucket... needless to say my 53" bucket that i paid for is measuring in at 49 and a half inside.. with a 51" cutting blade.. did the dealer screw up? Its too late in the day to call them now and im hoping u guys know... my invoice says 120r loader with 49" bucket and the next line says 53" bucket upgrade..

    If they did screw up now what!! I got kens hooks on it already... ugh!!

    Mine measures exactly 53". (The same 53" bucket is used on both the 1- and 2-series machines.)

    Mine's a 49"...measures 49 1/2" inside I believe. Definitely not a 53".

    I'd say your next step is just talk to the dealer. If you really want the 53, make them give it to you. Keep your hooks of course. If you can live with the 49", get your money back for the difference. At least an in-store credit. Negotiate a discount on something if you use that credit immediately. Might get a nice deal.

    I’m not near my tractor or I would measure mine. I have the 53” bucket. I ordered the HH tooth bar for the 53” and it fit fine.

    I’m thinking you have the 49” bucket,which is what comes standard. I kinda think the smaller bucket is a better fit for the one series tractors.

    Check this thread too.

    My bucket has a plate welded to it, with dot-matrix type printing (braille). Mine says BW14144.

    Ya, they will be getting a phone call first thing tomorrow morning. Thank you all for your replies! I dont want the headache of sending the toothbar back and trying to get my 50$ back from the upgrade. But either way i have to correct this somewhere.. after using the 49" bucket to widen my drive 10' by 100' long and spread gravel for it.. i think the 1025r can handle the 53 no issue.. i hope the dealer dont put up a fight.. they should have no REAL reason too its their fault.

    My bucket is 53” on the inside. The 53” bucket works fine for all a round use. No problem lifting a full bucket of dirt. However, I do feel the smaller bucket would be better for heavy digging.
