I have the H130 Loader on my 2032R which works great for moving dirt, etc but I would love to have some type of larger bucket that would hold more brush or demolition scrap material. The weight I'm looking to pick up would be considerably less than what I use the H130 for so weight wouldn't be an issue. Does anyone know of a larger type brush / debris bucket?

Thanks, John Ford

What size bucket do you have now? Most all Deere loader are available with a couple different size buckets. The larger buckets are called material buckets for the reason you state.

You can buy a second bucket - takes but a few seconds to change them out.

Here is a compatibility chart for the H130. It looks like 61-inch is the largest official bucket. I suspect you could use the 73-inch bucket since the compatibility overlaps between the H130 and 300CX. I suspect JD doesn't include it as it would be too large and heavy for anything but lightweight material. You could always measure the pin spacing to verify. BTW, the 73-inch bucket is $1030.

How often do you anticipate needing a larger bucket? You could always fabricate some bolt-on wooden sides for your existing bucket to allow it to hold more loose material like brush.

Have you ever considered a grapple?
You can easily install the 3rd function hydraulics for the loader yourself. It's not complicated at all. See the attached video I made about installing the WR Long 3rd function hydraulics, as well as the videos of the EA 55" Wicked Root Rake Grapple I installed. The setup is truly BadAss!!! Let me know if you have any questions. Can guide you through the installation .....happy to do so....

Sincerely

I have a set of forks that work great but I need something that will hold brush, sod, leaves, building debris, etc and the bucket I have is just to small to make it worthwhile for this light weight material. Bolt on wooden sides may do the trick. John

If you have a set of forks there is another idea I've been kicking around. A 53" bucket is ~7.8 CUFT. If you need to mostly haul and dump debris but not scoop how about something that is 17 cubic feet and is very lightweight?

Below is a Brinly 17P poly cart. It is identical to the JD 17P cart except it is black and costs less at ~$299. I've been kicking around the idea of buying one of these carts, removing the tub and bolting two steel box channels to the bottom that would accept fork tines. You could then slide this onto the forks with the flat front side against the fork backstop and secure with a strap or chain. This would provide a cheap 17 cubic foot debris bucket that once filled could easily be dumped. This would provide 60% more capacity than even the 73-inch bucket at 1/3 the cost!

I have the JD 17P poly lawn cart and the thing is a beast. It is rated for hauling ~1000 lbs.

Thinking in that frame of mind - one of our members got himself one of these last year - he uses it all the time. Available in many different sizes and styles.

I think the OP needs something for the loader. There's no question that carts have their place but the problem with a cart is that once you load it up you have to manually unload it. That's why I prefer to haul brush with the loader and just dump it on the brush pile.

Me too no matter how many trips.

Those wagons that I linked do dump however. I like the wagon style because you can unhook it to load with the loader.

Theres no reason you can't put a 73" bucket on a 2032R as long as you're careful with it.

Any bucket that fits a 300 series will fit. Not 100% sure but I think even the 400 series uses the same mounts..
Yes, they have the same mounts.

I felt the same way about my HD bucket on my 4066R. I wanted a bigger bucket for cleaning horse stalls, raking leaves and sticks, etc. I went to the JD dealer and bought the 72” high volume bucket BW 14658. He said the book price was $1,500 (or somewhere around that I don’t remember exactly). He sold it to me for $700. If the pins fit your tractor loader I would recommend you buy the same model bucket.

Sent some time this weekend cleaning up from a down pine tree and made 4-5 trips to the dump pile with light weight junk in the bucket. I have been think of what to do for a high volume bucket since I got the tractor 1 1/2 years ago. Same thing last season for cleaning up, lots of trips with light weight stuff.

Was thinking of some type of extensions for the bucket but this cart looks like the perfect solution! I can weld up a metal frame for under it to fit my forks. It looks like my HD has these in stock. Wounder if I could get $100 or so for the unused frame and wheels?

Thanks for the idea

Kevin

I was thinking the same thing. The Brinly website doesn't even list replacement wheel assemblies but I searched the P/N and found some place selling them for $85 each. It's odd that they don't sell the tub either. I guess they figure if you manage to break it you'll just have to buy a new cart.

I'd probably just keep them for spares for my 17P cart.
