    Hello WWMW,

    I have a Johnny Bucket on my 2185. Electric motors for lift (no curl!) and dump. I also got the joystick control as opposed to a switch for each motor.

    I am happy with it; it makes my garden tractor more useful. However, calling it a 'bucket' is a bit of a misnomer... The term 'bucket' implies specific things in the mindset of tractoring... It is more accurate to call it a 'scoop', and describe it as a replacement for a wheelbarrow & shovel. (Shovel still often required due to lack of curl function.)

    The quality and fabrication is top-notch. Much sturdier than anything CC produces. Am I happy I got it? Yes. Is it a 'bucket?' No.

    Hope this helps,

    Is my Cub Cadet 1515 with the 15HP Koler Command powerful enough for a 42" Johnny Bucket Jr. any thoughts or opinions appreciated thinking about buying one soon.

    Thanks!

    Hello WWMW,

    The 'power' you need to operate the Johnny Bucket is electrical... Hence, I would say that as long as the electrical system on your 1515 is in great working order, you will not have issues.

    Note that like any common tractor with a bucket or snowblower, you will require rear weights of some sort.

    Hope this helps,
