Keith is exactly right. You'll love that bucket and move everything with it.
Great buy.

You underestimate the value of two buckets. I'm a happy owner of a 49" with a Piranha toothbar for summer digging and ripping and a 61" for all the other seasons and reasons. Danmorea, don't let this naysayer get you down. :laugh: You'll get good use of both!

Best of both worlds.

I have a 53" bucket on my 2520 and wouldn't want any bigger for digging. With the tooth bar it is just right for virgin packed earth & rocks. I'd like to have a 61" for snow removal

I agree.
I love the "small" bucket and Piranha bar.
I can breakout dig, heap, and carry all day long.

Long big capacity buckets have their place no doubt.
They also put a lot of leverage strain and twist on loader arms and pins when they are used in certain situations.
