    So since Ron went out and had a spill gaurd made for his bucket, I jumped on the bad wagon and did one of mine to.

    New Bradco 78" (Came with my PT80) dirt or extreme bucket with teeth, soon to have the side cutters installed

    Wow!!!!! What a difference it makes. No more Clay slabs in the cab. no more digging out dry pack clay and dirt out of my bucket pivots. It does let a bit go over the top, but not much.


    Over all quite impressive.

    Visibility is great

    This bucket is only about 2/3s the length of a normal bucket. So it worked out well.

    Nice job, but I would have put in on the back like mine, you gain more capacity.

    Yes, But I still have a place to step when I get in the machine. And With the angle on mine I can fully dump the bucket to shake off any crap that goes over the top of the gaurd.

    And its mine and I like it, so there.
