    Stump Bucket build for 1025r

    I thought a Stump Bucket would be a useful addition to my collection of loader attachments.
    I thought it would be an easy build, with the most time spent in welding it together.
    My main concern was size … I didn't want a bucket too large for the 1025 to handle, nor so small that it would be practically useless.
    To save on cost I wanted to make the bucket so it would attach to my Titan loader fork back frame, rather than build a complete QA loader mount frame with the bucket welded to it.
    I thought a bucket 30" long and 9" wide on the bottom, with the sides flaring out to 14" at the top back edge might be a size the tractor could handle. The only way to know for sure was to build it and try it …
    I had some 3/16" and 1/4" plate steel sheared to the dimensions I needed, and I cut 1"x1" and 1" x 2" x 3/16" tubing to sizes needed
    The 3/16" plate was for the back and sides, and the 1/4" plate would be for the bottom. The tubing would be for the back frame.

    Welded up the mounting frame, and started welding together the sides and bottom of the bucket.

    I know it’s something i looked up a year ago and would like to build. It’s awesome for helping dig up stumps, rocks, bushes, hard, etc.
    I believe it works good if you need a shallow trench built. Especially if you don’t have a backhoe.
    I could see myself using it a lot to get rocks and dirt to a more specific spot than my 53” wide loader.

    Gwizz- will you be able to weigh it? When I built my pallet forks I used a house scale as I was building it. I was able to weigh the frame on the house scale afterwards and each fork. Surprisingly it was very close to the same weight.

    It's for taking out one of these I used an artillian hoe bucket for this one with my 3E series. I originally had it for my 2210.

    For those who think you can trench with a stump or hoe bucket, I would caution you it is a slow and laborious process (and not nearly as neat as a trencher or back hoe), particularly if the ground is hard and compacted. I use my hoe bucket for stump removal and also for planting bushes and small trees. It's very hard to put a shovel in the ground in my little piece of North Carolina due to the clay and rocks so I used this when I don't want to rig up my post hole digger.

    It appears the OP is building something similar to the artillian hoe bucket but with a longer reach. Most stump buckets I have seen are quite heavy, have a long throat and most are rigged up for skid steers. I think there is a bit of a market for a light weight stump bucket for SCUT's and small compact tractors but it hasn't been tapped or I have not found one. My neighbor has one for his 25hp Kubota but it's really meant for a skid steer or bigger tractor, it would not work on a SCUT due to the weight.

    The Artillian Hoe Bucket doesn't have a very deep throat like a traditional stump bucket but it works very well for what it is. To me the OP has the right idea going on the size of his, hopefully it isn't too heavy for a the 1 series he wants to put it on to.

    I test fitted the mounting frame and welded it to the back of the bucket. Then I notched 1" square stock for bucket teeth and welded them in place, to a 1/2" x 4" bottom plate. The 1" square stock I used for the bucket teeth isn't hardened, but if the teeth wear down I'll just add weld to build them back up … easy fix.

    Yes … I did weigh the completed bucket, believe it or not it actually weighs LESS that the two 42" fork tines I use.
    The bucket weighs 101 pounds, with a coat of paint on it …

    Weak Spot?

    Completed the bucket …
    I took it out for a "test dig" to see if it would actually work, and if there were any places that needed reinforcing …
    I dug a hole to about 3/4 the depth of the bucket and about twice as long ...

    Nuts … I found a weak spot in my build …

    No pictures of said “weak spot”?!?!

    I’m sure you’ll have it fixed up and reinforced in no time-regardless your idea, execution and fab looks very impressive

    Where in SW Mi, neighbor?
