I purchased a BB yesterday, it weighs 400lbs. I used my bucket on my 1026 to unload it from my trailer. I strapped chain to the hooks on my bucket which are mounted on the top of the bucket inline with the lifting arms. I tilted the bucket all the way down so the hooks would be as close to the BB as possible and hooked the chains up. From the BB to the hooks were about 6"-7".
My loader wouldn't pick the BB high enough to lift it out of the trailer which is a 5x10 standard trailer with roughly 1.5' sides. But even trying to tilt the bucket back into regular operating position it still wouldn't do that. It would move and few inches then stop, same as trying to lift it straight up, few inches and stop.
Since the BB only weighs 400lbs and the loaders are rated for 700lbs, shouldn't the bucket have been able to tilt back towards me and lift the BB out of the trailer?
