    Im wanting to put a bucket spill guard on my 80 inch low profile bucket. I remember a thread last year that had several pics of them, but some how lost them. So if you have a pic or 2 I would like to see them. Any tips or ideas to do/avoid would help as well. Thanks again!

    No, it's complicated, dealerships are funny people to deal with when it comes to low inventory on buckets, but it's kinda working out better now, I am extending the edge on the bucket to give me more bucket capacity with out killing the width.

    I saw it just fine, but you get used to the feel of it after a while.

    Heres mine. I wish I would have made it a bit more vertical, Vs leaning it foward. But by leaning it the way we did, it helps us see the cutting edge and it will roll the material like a dozer blade does.

    Dirt does come over the top still, but its now where near as bad as it was.
