  • We need a good way to quickly hold the top link when changing implements.

  • 4N1 bucket is not on the list ? ? ?
    This doubles the usefulness of any tractor !

  • I would like to add a hydraulic top link to my old ford tractor. 1966 ford 5000. I have to add hydraullics to it first, or at the same time. But something after market, since the tractor is so old, parts are unlikely available to add hydraulics and the top link.
    Any suggestions on how to start this build?

  • Great article but I wish you had provided links on where to get these add ons.

  • I have a lot of the add on’s plus a home made sun shade for here in New Mexico. I just added a tool box.

  • Does anyone make forklift times to fit on a Kubota bucket? I have an04 Kubota L3130 with split bucket and have a need for forklift blades 4tth time now, and the only Company that I see that makes what I need is Titan.
    They make an adaptable forklift blade that has wrap around chains and T handle tightening clamps that will convert your bucket to a forklift

  • Is there any sickelbar or sidecutter for a Kunitz 2320

  • I’ve got most of these. Time savers.

  • RE: HANG UPPER BAR AT REAR.
    TIE LOOPS AT BOTH ENDS OF A (APP) 4′ ROPE, HALF HITCH IT OVER THE LOWER ROPS BAR, PUT THE TWO RODS OF THE UPPER ADJUSTABLE LING INTO THE LOOPS. HAVE USED THIS FOR 8 YRS ON MY KUBOTA LT4330. AND IT DOES NOT RATTLE.

  • One of the first things I got was a set of bucket forks for my Mahindra Max 25, bent the you know what out of the edge of the bucket just trying to move a stack of pallets. If you get something like this, make sure your bucket is thick enough or use some kind of plate on the inside to hold your bucket’s edge true. We’ve gone to 2 local steel plants (one literally down the road from us)…nothing you can do except buy a new bucket once it’s bent out even a little bit.

  • I have the bucket forks like the ones pictured and honestly, they are worthless. They don’t clamp down well enough to not move back and forth when picking up all but small loads. I’ve had them to actually fall off while trying to get under a log or pallet. They are more of a headache than anything. Save your money and go with an actual fork attachment. You’ll thank me.

  • Has anyone tried fitting a Kubota 6A700-51350 step kit to a Kubota B2110 or B2410? This kit is only supposed to fit B2630, B2650, B3030B, B3200, B3300 & B3350. Thanks.

  • Found good forks at neatfarms.com. Chain and shackle go around bucket to hold them in place. I use them for barrel lift and pallets.

  • The limb zapper is a good add-on for clearing edge of property, sides of roads, around lakes, hunting lanes, fire lanes, and pretty much any type clearing project. Its quicker and easier than hand tools and safer also… has different means of attaching to your implement. Whether to existing bucket or can be adapted for quick attach plates. Go to YouTube and search limb zapper to see some videos…

  • I am surprised both front/rear counter balance weights/boxes were not listed, as well as 3PH receiver/tow points.

  • To support my upper 3 point arm I added 2 eye bolts and use a rubber bungee cord. Works 4 me.

  • When purchasing bucket forks, be sure and get the ones with a telescopic cross member. It allows you to adjust the width of forks and holds your forks parallel and also causes them to work together rather than independently. An additional plate (even like 4″ X 4″) welded to the bucket to spread the footprint of the screw-downs is very helpful in keeping the forks from bending the bucket bottom. I love mine.

  • Small handsaw to cut up Branches or small logs that block trails

  • I also got clamp on bucket forks recently primarily to move logs. Yes they can get twisted (no cross brace yet) but still easily worth it. Incredibly helpful to move large brush piles or lumber too.
