    Default 7308 FEL, standard bucket vs heavy duty bucket

    Regarding the 7308 FEL, what is the difference between the standard bucket and the heavy duty bucket? Anyone have pictures of them? Is there a difference in the capacity, or is the HD one just stronger? Thanks.

    HD Bucket has a rolled top edge, reinforced side cutting plates, and welded on cutting edge that is predrilled to mount another bolt on cutting edge to. Attached is a picture of a heavy duty bucket. The picture is taken of just one side of it so that you can see more clearly the difference.

    Jason,
    On the 54" bucket on my TC18 w/12LA loader, It has a 2x2 steel channel at the top. Is this a standard bucket??

    54 in. Standard Material Bucket
    54 in. High Capacity Light Material Bucket

    These are the only two 54" buckets available for the 12LA loader. What you have is probably the stadard bucket. The high capacity buckets are made out of some really light stuff; I would image for just snow remove but I don't have much experiance with that it TX! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Jason, So, I'm assuming there is no difference in the capacity - is that correct? What is the difference in the weights of the buckets? What is the price difference? Thanks.

    In case anybody else needs this info, page 40 in the 7308 FEL manual shows the standard 60" bucket weight at 211 lbs and the heavy duty 60" bucket weight at 240 lbs.
