How about that?
That's what we need for green.
Love to be able to change buckets and a cool ripper wouldn't you?
Does BXpanded come on this site?

Got to start emailing them maybe....

Very cool, wonder how it works?

Bucket changes aren't the easiest thing but they aren't what I would call hard either-this would still be nice to have on my 46!

That is basically the same as the manual quick change that is on a full size Deere like a 410L.
You have one pin already in bucket that the open mouth slides over.
Curl and line up holes in quick attach with other set of holes in bucket gussets.
Slide pin through both and pin it with a torsion clip like that's on the front bucket JDQA.

From BXpanded:

I'm working on the connector right now. We just finished setting up for
production of the Talon Ripper for the 260 and 270. That should be
available on the website next week. The Quick-On Connector and trencher
bucket will be on the way shortly. I surmised that most folks wouldn't need
the connector unless we could offer some attachments to change.
Thanks for your interest.
Best regards,
Harry



Great! Now I get to spend even more :gizmo:

I wonder what I will have to buy the wife to keep her happy this time?:dunno:

WASTE of$$$ if you don't change everyday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Seems like it could be handy if you're working out a good sized stump.

Would be handy for trenching if you run into roots too.

Really?
I run equipment for a living.
I've never heard an operator that said a quick coupler was a waste of money when they had to do a grease free bucket change.
I have two buckets and would like to have that ripper tooth.
It may all be a waste of money, but i'm not gonna take it with me.:laugh:

I emailed BXpanded and got a similar response from Harry not less than 5 minutes after i sent it yesterday.
Coming soon!!:good2:

Thanks for the run down, after watching the vid I really like it. Solid, simple and easy! I was worried it might be electric or hydraulic actuated like some bucket QA's I see on large equipment and wondered how it would be run....

I have to start saving pennies now to get one of these and that awesome looking ripper tooth for my 46BH now, so that when they're available from Bxpanded I can order them!

Seems like nobody has mentioned how the bucket is now further away from the pivot pin. This gives more reach, but considerably less available force for the bucket and boom cylinders to act on the bucket's cutting edge. Definitely a plus to have more reach, but at a costly drawback of less power.

Something to consider...

It'd be interesting to run the geometry to see what the actual force difference is....

Yes, it gives a slightly different geometry to the curl force being farther away.
But not enough in my opinion to outweigh the positivity points. They are normally used on machines that do a multitask of excavating. Like pipe laying. Mass excavators and the like usually don't use them as there are more parts and pins to wear under the constant heavy digging.
Besides, when digging with a backhoe you really don't want to rely on curling of the bucket to get your bite of material.
You kind of want to set the bucket up going into the cut as to where you drag it into the material with the boom and stick. Bucket curl is more efficient at the holding and dumping phase of the operation.
