Has anyone used a 4 in 1 bucket on an RC-30 or 4 series bobcat?? (or other small machine?) I'm wondering if the added weight of the 4 in 1 would reduce the capacity of the smaller machines to the point where the advantages are outweighed by the loss of useful lift.....

we have one for our dingo..
the bucket capacity is smaller. we use the light mat. bucket for our primary bucket, but the 4 in one comes in really useful

We use a 4 in 1 on a Kanga. It is very useful. I would definately get one for the ASV. Its easy to overload the Kanga with the LM bucket so unless I'm handling mulch or snow, the clamshell bucket stays on.

I use one on my 553 bobcat, it may reduce the capacity, but it is so useful, and allows me to load into trucks that I would not be able to with a standard bucket. I also can pick up a levelling frame in the bucket, which is great for grading etc.

Anything from a piece of 4 x 2 up to a box blade, that can be grabbed with the 4 in 1 and used to level. We have a real basic one 8' wide made from heavy angle iron and some gal pipe, it works best when you have a big site thats all over the place and needs levelling out before final trim.
