That’s what I said in my first post in this thread. Poor design or not a tractor FEL isn’t designed for stump buckets.
Of course not. In this case it looks like a poor loader design, a poor bucket choice, and an inexperienced operator all at the same time.
But even so, there is no absolutely no excuse for any bucket being able to bend the bucket cylinders when a simple change in geometry would prevent it.
A quality design would either stall the motion or trigger the relief valve before damaging the loader. That one fails the test.
