    How to measure backhoe bucket

    What is the correct way to measure a backhoe bucket?

    I'm supposed to have a 16" backhoe bucket, but if I measure width it is about 12". I know when I was looking at the Kubota the width was different between the 12" and 16". With JD, I think it was a different measure?

    If I measure from tooth to the top of the bucket it is 16". Is this the correct way to measure it for JD? Odd that Kubota and JD would measure them differently.

    Sounds like you got a 12" and not a 16" bucket. My 46 has a 13" bucket that measures 13" wide. 14" from the outside points of the teeth. You may want to talk to your dealer.

    All of them are measured by the bucket width. An 8" bucket is 8" wide, a 12" bucket is 12" wide, etc... Deere measures their's the same way Kubota (and everyone else in the industry) measures their's.

    Yea, I just watched a video on youtube with a 16" and it is a lot wider like the Kubota. I'm not sure how they missed that as that is partially why I waited for a month to get it!!

    I checked the serial and it matches up with the contract, they did the Rim Guard and the Block Heater so all of it is correct but the hoe bucket.

    Interesting, emailed the dealer yesterday and nothing. Called today and got excuses that it was over looked because they only order them with 12" buckets. That may be, but it's on the quote for a 16" and was supposed to be ordered back in December! Supposed to order it today! We'll see!
