    Default Carry-All for Front Mower ?

    Has anyone made a Carry-All for out-front mower machines such as kubota F-2000 series, NH G6000 series, Iseki SF series, etc ?? Talking about the 'backwards CUT' rather than ZTR, lawn tractor or home-size riding mowers. Something similar to the Johnny Bucket that is made for garden tractors and JD-only front-mowers??

    Sounds like a good idea. You might need to add some weight to the back. What about adding pallet forks to the front and making the carryall work with forks. Forks are very usefull.

    Yeah, forks with a removable platform would work.....I was trying to not re-invent the wheel so to speak and be able to buy or copy something someone else had already figured out. The heavy-duty mower decks on these type machines are 450 to 550 lbs and have a two-point hydraulic lift, but remove easily. Just want to move rocks & dirt around.....do not need to dig or lift high to dump.

    Have you see the JohnnyBucket Johnny Bucket Sr. John deere 300-400 series ? Unfortunately they are only made for lawn tractors, but the concept is pretty much what I am after.

    This probably isn't what you need, but I did it because I didn't have a deck for it.

    Nice to see some action shots of your rig, Xfaxman......notice that you also have a Toolcat......we have a 5600C in Canada primarily for snow removal & sanding......the place is for sale however and will offer the equipment to new buyer as it suits the needs well.

    As for the kubota F2880 (just like the current F3080), I have looked more at the JohnnyBucket and they do have one for the JD 1400 & 1500 series but I could rig up something similar with a used bucket to fit the 'Bota even with some small forks if needed. Not quite like what you have, but would do all I need around here.
