Chiwanesium......................low bidder, LOL. I would source a new cylinder from somewhere besides JD. Probably be the same part but 1/10 the price so when it happens again it will hurt less

I have a good hydraulic repair shop locally. He's going to replace the rod with a stronger one. Or if he can, a rod that has a slightly larger diameter.

stump bucket and good bucket are best. Plus, they don't bend

Stump buckets are best.

If the cylinder rod didn't/doesn't bend, I wonder what part would end up being the weak link?
Might could be a good idea to have a rod that is weaker than the other parts in the system?

I believe it was a short while back. I may have even replied to that one too. Was pretty much the same scenario, but I believe it was a different hoe.

There has been more than a few here on GTT. First one I've seen on a 485A.

These bent bucket cylinders Seem to be a recent epidemic around here. This is the 3rd. or 4th. 485A and we’ve seen a few 46’s, 270’s and I believe a 375A as well.

Makes me a little nervous with the new 485A on the 4066R.

Worked the ever loving daylights out of my last 485 Backhoe on the previous 3 series. Dug some massive stumps and buried some rocks as large as the tractor………..different bucket cylinder though.

It’s been a few years back but Kubota had a similar problem on one of there backhoes. They were not bending near that bad but were bending much easier, just digging a trench. One guy even had a video and he was in no way abusing the machine at the time.

There have been a few over the past couple years. If memory serves me right, one fella bent his twice.

Made me nervous as well with my 375A.

Little green painted Deere's are not like their big yellow painted brothers, one has add on attachments, the other is a purpose built machine.
Agreed. I thing with the green version technique and finesse are a requirement.

Yeah, the BH75 was a disaster for Kubota.
