So last weekend I picked up a CX gator in great shape, it's a good size for our property. I'd like to be able to pick up material with the 49" bucket on my 1025R and drop it into the gator's cargo box. The issue is that the cargo box is only about 38" wide. I was thinking about trying to make a "reducer" insert for my bucket (I might be able to use the same holes for my tooth bar to attach it), and was wondering if anyone ekse has tried this or has another solution? The goal with the reducer would be to simply "fill up" 5 or so inches on each side of the bucketsuch that hopefully most of what I dump ends up in the cargo box & not all over the gator or on the ground.

Load one side

If you are loading from a pile, just drive into the pile on the edge and fill up whatever amount of the bucket you want.

If you are digging, you have to create bit of a drive in trench first and then again load the bucket by cutting 1/2 width. It takes a bit more time but can be done with a full width bucket.

most folks lay the tail gate down and that gives u a bit more length to load.

Just back up to the pile. Load the bucket. Align the bucket with the front of the bed and let the other end spill over the tailgate end - the over spill will be right at the bottom of the pile. Once in a while push the over spill back onto the pile.
