    Default 61-in. (1550 mm) Heavy-duty bucket with holes for cutting edge

    Can the 200CX Loader handle a "61-in. (1550 mm) Heavy-duty bucket with holes for cutting edge" usually sold for the 300CX?
    I would like to use this bucket because it is already pre-drilled to change the cutting edge, which I will be adding a high tensile and abrasion resistant urthane material 1/4" thick x 3" deep by 61" long for snow plowing

    Hi:

    I'm no expert but to the best of my knowledge the spacing on the J hook and pin mounts on the 200CX and 300CX are identical. Some of the accessories sold fit the 200CX and 300CX so it seems that that would have to be true. The HD 61" bucket is probably a little heavy for the 200CX though and might take away from your lift capacity.

    I have seen a few 200CX loader go out with the heavy duty 61"bucket and they use it mosty for snow removal.I think it would not be a problem to put it on your 200CX loader you may have to consider it may not lifts as much.Here is picture of the 61"bucket with replacable cutting edge on my 3120 with 300x loader.

    I believe that's the same bucket on my 4600 - minus the hooks I have on it. I don't have the stickers though...

    Having had both HD buckets (w/ removable edges) and dirt buckets, I'd suggest the HD bucket everytime. It doesn't get dented, it handles rocks and other things very well, and the extra weight trade-off isn't that bad.

    I bumped up 1 bucket size for snow removal, I have a 4310 with 300cx loader that came with the 61" hd bucket. I was toying with the idea of making one of those pusher boxes like you see in the plaza lots now, but then figured I'll just get the 73" high volume light materials bucket which is not only wider, but deeper and taller too, it wasn't cheap (around $950.) but it does what I wanted. If you have the 61" bucket, use it, if you are going to buy new, see if you can get a higher volume bucket in the same width.
    You have to be a little careful, even though they consider snow a light material, some times it's anything but.
    here's a couple of pics, one shows the 61" bucket inside the 73" bucket, for comparison.
