I purchased my 2038R tractor with 270B and got all three size buckets. I have used both the 12” and the 16”, but have yet to use the 8”. I do plan on digging a trench for utilities in the spring so the 8” bucket will get its first use!I'm in the market for a larger bucket than the standard 8". Anyone know what is available!

Yep. I still have the same opinion. Get the 16" and a narrow trenching bucket. If I were to "do over", I would choose bxpanded trenching bucket instead of Deere 8".I havent looked at the part numbers, but the same sizes are available for it as are for the 260B.
On my 2025, I went with the 8" and 16". I figured Id need the 8" for trenching, which I knew Id be doing, and the 16" for other digging duties. It was my opinion at the time that whatever I needed a 12" bucket for, the 16" would handle just fine. I came to that conclusion after watching TTWT talking about his 16" bucket vs the 12".
If the 260B will handle the 16 fine, the 270 should too.
Ultimately, it would be great to have all 3 options, but getting one extra bucket was enough $$ for me, Ill use the other money for something else, or at least thats what I said then. Somehow that money never really appeared to go to anything, or even materialize. Go figure. :laugh:
