    That's very weak, my 247B2 will have that amount, and really lug before i need to dump it. Your machine is at least 10+ hp more than mine.

    I have a 287b and with a pile like that it wouldn't stop, it keep pushing. I can only assume the 297C would do better.

    66", I wish I had a bucket that has a spill guard like yours, I've had dirt up against the front window already.

    the spill guard is a big help for moving more soil per push without spilling over the back of bucket.
    The bucket in pic must be similar to the one i use on T300 Bobcat..84" wide x 23" high with 12" spill guardl on top. Total of 35" high to top of guard. I can still spill soil etc. over the guard:)

    I have a couple of reasons for the spill Guard
    #1 keeps alot more of the junk out of the pivot points down below
    #2 you will be moving more dirt in one shove
    #3 i don't want those pcs of soil curling up against the cab


    It is quite easy to get a spill guard cut at a fab shop this one has 3"x3" holes just weld it to your existing bucket as of now it has not been clogging on me !! Anyway i don't want to be with out it :cool2:

    This is my bucket size 84"wide x 23" high with 12" spill guard on top Total 35" High wonder how that would work out in terms of cubic yards ? I imagine it is alot more then the regular 66" bucket

    The 277B we had would fill an 84" tooth bucket way before it would run out of traction.
