Also, you could rent or borrow (or loan out) attachments easier if you were set up with the more universal SS type system.
    My goal here Jim is not to have to change over anything with exceptions of putting on extensions to use as a snow pusher. I would keep this attachment on probably all the time as my need for a dirt bucket is just about non existent. With more and more tractors coming out with quick tach, it makes for this type of design as rather innocuous but for me with pins, I would not have to ever change anything once something like this was on.

    With this attachment, I would not have to ever change over to anything else. It would pile logs, gather and pile slash and move snow. That is all I need.

    Take your existing bucket, cut the sides and reinforce as you show in your sketch & weld or bolt in the tines you already have. You will be 1/2 way there. The other option would be to find an old manure bucket which would be very similar. If you need more roll-back, extend the lower mounting holes to suit.

    Side extentions could easily be made to attach with some hitch receivers. Weld 2 on each side facing sideways (one near the top, one near the bottom) that extentions could be slid into and held in place with just 2 pins each. Make your side extentions as wide as you wish supported by 2x2 tubing. By the shape of your bucket, make the top bar a couple inches longer than the bottom one to make mounting easier as you will only have to line up one at a time. As long as everything is perfectly paralell, it shouldn't take more than 30 seconds to mount or remove.

    You will find a greater purchase power with an edge rather than with a flat face. When I had my pin-on bucket of this design as a single non Q/A bucket there was nothing I could not accomplish. Snow removal was not in the formula unless I wanted to break up some frozen piles. Good luck with the wings, I don't see in your drawing where they might go. I preferred to just do a single bucket change seasonally. I wish you success in your bucket as I would not be without mine.
    Working to increase the scope of the small tractor experience, one quick attach at a time.

    True but I think I've kind of established my uses for this tractor having had it for 28 years. Used to have horses and a bucket came in handy.

    I think the cheapest route for you would be to go with the kubota B series style quick attach like a few guys have already said.

    [QUOTE=arrow;3133679]First if they say necessity is the mother of invention, I need a new mama. I do not have a quick hitch. I have a pin on bucket. Now a days, the bucket is used the least of everything I have but it has an important role in that it serves as a mounting platform for tines, teeth and forks. As I skid logs in winter, I need an attachment that A. is able to pile logs, B. is able to plow snow better than what a bucket can do. C. can mount forks to. D. can make any of these change overs in seconds. I wish I had C.A.D. to show what this might look like but I'm thinking of a 4' wide "blade" used to pile logs and go through the woods easier that one can quickly pin on snow containment sides (sort of like a snow pusher) that make it 6' wide. I already made dismount forks so that's the easy part. Its about how this can curl and hold a tree stem without getting in the way of plowing snow. Any ideas would be welcomed.[/Q

    I did not have time to finish the whole thread but here is my take: I have a Bota BX25. They have limited lift cap on the FEL and further reduced by attachments to the bucket. My bucket is pinned on also so the adapter kits to make it QH are kind of spendy. So, I decided to do a DIY project. It is under way and being designed as I go. Base is a piece of 6" channel 4' long pinned in place of the bucket. This brings any load 2' closer to the tractor. For starters I am making a set of 42" long tongs spaced 6" apart of 1 1/4" X 1/4" square tube with an eventual grapple to handle brush and limbs. Also working on a set of adjustable width pallet forks that will mount on this unit and on my QH of the 3PT. All in the embryo stage. Stand by for updates as i continue this winter project. I am also improving the 3PT crap on the BX with some differnt parts to be adjustable W/O packing around a bunch of wrenches. This may be pretty novel; other will decide that.
