Looks great. I've got a spare bucket for mine that I plan on cutting 12-18" off either side of and welding onto mine to make a wider bucket out of. Yours looks like a Davis 99 loader, right?

You done real good! :cool2:

I made the bucket for my Kenbota out of a piece of 2' round pipe. I don't know what the pipe was for originally. I got it out of the salvage yard and it seemed to be the right length. I think it was #10 or #11 steel. The first task was to slit it and flatten. I put the rear shape back in with a 5" channel and 3" channel which then gave me the V-shape I wanted. I then cutout two pieces for the end caps and added some bracing, mounting and edging. Splashed some paint on it and that was that. I think that was about 15 years ago and it's still serving me well.

Be careful with how much you load the bucket. Your TO35 looks to have the agricultural front axle under it. It's easy to overload!

Otherwise, looks great!

shaeff is correct. Before I bought my TO-35, a previous owner apparently overloaded the bucket, and broke the front part of the axle tube support casting.
