    Default Re: Reverse Backhoe bucket

    If you reverse the cylinder, it will still curl when the cylinder is retracted. Doesn't matter which way the cylinder faces.

You will need to extend the two hydraulic lines, certainly the one closest to the backhoe which is now going to be closest to the bucket. The other one should be in a similar location andyou may be able to adjust the existing line.
    Orientation does not affect how much force the cylinder develops when retracting or when extending.

    What difference would that make? The cylinder action is still the same.

    ... = Why I asked. I couldnt see any easy way to uncurl the bucket with cyl extension. Thot I must be missing the point somewhere.

    It looks like you are correct. Piloon suggested that and I had not given it enough thought. To get the stronger cylinder direction while digging with the bucket backwards would take a lot more than flipping the cylinder around. You'd have to get the cylinder on the bucket side of the dipper or something which is not practical.
