I don't care what bucket is on it somthing is wrong!!, them cyls should not be bending, there is a fault in the rods, undersized or not hardend properly, they look undersized to me, the older cb65 sub compacts bh had the same issue with the dipper cyl, new revised cyls were issued and problem was solved.
i agree, even pressure relief should be stopping them before allowing them to get to that point

several brands
I'm not going to argue about the quality of the cyl. rods, they aren't here for me to see in person, but I still say that bucket is on too small/lightly built tractor and I don't care what the brand is.

Those buckets put huge torque on a loader and should be on a larger sized tractor.

I will agree with that statement IF he had let go of the control stick and bounced it, if you watch the video to the end, you can see where he lets go of the downforce, why isn't the tractor going into pressure relief. that's my issue.

There SHOULDN’T be cylinders that look like that. It looks modified to “fit”.

Buy a CTL and stop treating your tractor like one.

The combination of no triangulation brackets, fully extended cylinders, and large forces acting on the stump digger is a recipe for trouble.

That stump digger certainly looks it’s designed for skid steers.
