    Probably just enough to fill it
    But seriously what is the struck capacity? 1 cuf equals 7.48 gallons.
    if its 10 cubic feet it will hold about 75 gallons before its sloshed around and spills out

    Cant help with specifics but the kubota 6ft for the m series is listed at 15.5 cubic feet in my loader owners manual which would put it a about a 100 gallons. Does your manual have the details

    Not many, the bucket has holes drilled half way up it. I tried covering them up and it slowed the leak, but carrying water in the bucket is something you really don't want to have to do.

    I'd try strapping a couple of large plastic food grade barrels into the bucket vertically and let out the water with a spigot and hose or just the spigot. Or rain barrels from TSC or H Depot or such...
    You could keep them on pallets and put them into and out of the bucket when empty. Then fill while tilted back some in the bucket, then transport to site and empty, rinse, repeat....
