Took 3 years but my custom built tilt bucket for my Kubota U35 is done. Started with a Cat 303.5 bucket I got off of Iron Planet for cheap, torched the ears and used them for my pivot point, found a cylinder online had my welder fab up and weld the plates and reinforce and came out pretty well, just need to limit the flow in the lines to slow it down and reroute the one line and put a piece of rubber over the ram and its good to go.

What I started with

The local fab shop (MC Faulkner) quoted me $5100, no way I was paying that much. I have less than $1000 into it.

Need to get Flow restrictors and should slow it down.

Hell yea!

I found a 6' bushhog frame for $200 on craigslist. Thought about piking it up and fabbing up a custom brush mower for my skidsteer.
