    I would LOVE a utility grapple. PT charges $800 plus shipping for these. Gotta save up!

    I would also love a 'grubbing bucket', which PT doesn't product, but is basically a really small bucket, mounted just like the regular light material or rock bucket, that is used for digging up stuff - it is a replacement for a hand shovel.

    Look at this. You might even be able to build one.

    Thanks so much JJ, you always have something interesting to show or say. Much appreciated.

    Looks like I'd have to get the bucket model... I don't think that it will fit on the PT's non-adjustable forks?

    I'd consider getting it, but the lift is a bit anemic for the size of machine.
    anyone know if you can just put the loader tires on it and beef up the lift arms and hydraulics or is it an entirely different chassis etc?

    Sure you could beef it up , but can the wheel motor shaft take the extra weight.

    The lifting force has a safety factor built in so if you lift the rated load, the rear end will not come off the ground. You could load the rear end down and lift more, but you do it at your own risk. The hyd can do the job, and you could up the relief pressure, but you will have to know all the specifics to do all this.

    PT 425

    Default Re: Power Trac Future

    Ok I like that idea. Back hoe costs to much for me right now and I really don't need something that extravagant but I wonder how hard it would be to fabricate/make one fit a PT 425. A strong quick attach plate and a way for it to mount to it. Probably a smaller digger version so as not to overwork the tractor. Hmmm ideas anyone or has anyone made one yet for the PT 425? Don't be afraid to chime in.

    Or you could take a minihoe and figure out some way to flip the bucket around. Wouldn't that essentially be the same thng?

    Some nasty leverage would be trying to tweak your loader arms. I am not sure I would want to try that.
