    You should be able to keep your arms and legs but your going to give up a couple fingers and at least a toe.

    I've been looking for a suitable 4-in-1 for a while now and have found little.

    The minimum you will require is a diverter valve and 2 hoses going to the front to be able to operate all the functions. Hydraulics are not cheap. Since cost appears to be a factor, perhaps you should explore the cost of getting hydraulics up front as a first step. All else is a moot point if that cannot be accomplished.

    All the 4-in-1 buckets I've investigated are too heavy for the 1 series loader lift capacity to be of practical use. Perhaps a dedicated grapple instead would do the job for you?

    The only possible candidate I can think of that would not be too heavy is a unit that was designed to fit on a walk behind mini skid steer. Your tractor could surely handle this unit but the capacity by volume is very small. I rejected it for that reason.

    Since getting my Artillian grapple which I equipped with a dedicated frame, I have discovered little need for a 4-in-1 bucket.

    I was going to suggest an Artillian grapple also - just right for the 1 series.

    I came close to purchasing a 4 in 1 bucket with my 3320. Dealer had one in stock at the time as well. Once I got looking at the specs I realized how heavy it was and how much it would reduce my lifting capacity. That was the end of a 4 in 1 bucket for my 3320. I believe that the weight and reduced lift capacity would be much more significant on a 1 Series.

    HI moweec
    I know this is not much help because I live in Australia where regulations require self leveling front end loaders. So we have a number of manufacturers of after market loaders who all offer 4 in 1 buckets. I have one fitted to my 1025R.
    Because the loader is self leveling the bucket does not require a spill guard so a normal bucket is half the height of a non self leveling bucket and much lighter.
    The 4 in 1 bucket is heaver than the normal bucket and reduces the capacity of the loader a little but the advantaged out weigh the disadvantages. I would not be without my 4 in 1 it is too handy. I do use my tractor, I have done 400 hrs in 26 months.
    The third action valve (open and close the bucket) is mounted on the FEL, there is a button on top of the loader control (which has a new handle fitted), this changes the dump and crowd action of the control to open and close the bucket. You hold the button down while moving the control leaver left or right (open or close) the controls are very easy to use.
    Regards John
