I have the Bobcat 4 n 1. Virnig makes a nice skeleton bucket so their quality of workmanship is nice.

On my Bobcat bucket, I wish the clam shell cutting edges were hardfaced or reinforced. Mine looks like a saw tooth pattern from all the chips, dents, and otherwise abuse it takes pulling posts and rocks. For the most part, my 4 n 1 has only been used with a toolcat so it's not getting a ton of force.
They are very heavy as-is, but if a manufacturer added reinforcement in a few areas, that would be my choice for bucket.
