 Where can I get a 6 or 8 inch bucket for 48 Backhoe ?

Last week they delivered my new 4310 4WD Hydro, 430 Loader,
and 72" rotary cutter. Next week they are picking it up to install
the 48 Hoe. I ordered the 14" HD bucket for the hoe (I thought
the HD bucket would take more abuse). I really would like to
have a 6 or 8 inch bucket for trenching.

My JD dealer says that Woods buckets will not fit the 48 hoe.
They found an 8" bucket that will fit the 48 Hoe but it's a bit
pricey ($470).

Does any one know of a cheaper option?

I love the tractor and cannot wait for the hoe !!!

Thanks.
Mitch

The new 46 hoe for the 4100's is listed with a 9" bucket.

I have no clue if they are interchangeable between models and no-one has seen a 46 yet.... due out next week.

Might be worth checking in to.

Here's another way of looking at it. A narrower bucket will take about the same time as a wide one to dig a trench. Most time trenching is taken by pulling the hoe out of a trench, swinging and dumping it. A narrow trench requires less earth dug than a wider one but a narrower bucket fills up quick and about the same number of dumps is needed. Heaver loads when using wide buckets may slow the hydraulics a bit but not much.

A wider trench does make more earth to move for back filling. However, a person can get into a wider trench to make connections etc. Earth comes off trench walls (especially in sandy soils) and wider trenches don't have to be 'touched up' as much to keep level floors.

Narrower buckets can be an advantage in very heavy soils. Digging with a wider bucket can be hard enough to stall the hydraulics. Wider buckets place more stress on a tractor frame and can create heat problems during heavy operation. Six of one and half dozen of the other I guess. I have a 12" bucket myself and have never wanted anything narrower. I almost always have to go into a trench for something, and I don't think I could do it with a narrower trench. I'm getting a bit wider myself these years.

One problem with the narrow buckets for trenching is if digging in wet dirt or clay the buckets pack up and are difficult to get the dirt to dump out of the bucket.
I have a 8" and 14" bucket for my Caddigger and I seldom use the 8" because its much harder to get the dirt out of the bucket.

Yes Tom. I am with you. A waist is a terrible thing to mind.

Thanks for the tip on the 46 hoe bucket. I will check on that.

I mainly wanted the smaller bucket when trenching thru the gravel
driveway. I figured the smaller the disturbance the better. We have
about 1000' of driveway and will need to cross it more than once.

Yes, I'm reluctant to disturb nicely compacted gravel too. I did cross a gravel drive once for an electrical line. Codes here require 4' trenches with 6" of sand on the bottom to cross under roadways. Use of protection planks saves a bit of depth.

Gravel here is pit run (a mixture of sand and small stone) The stone did get mixed with the subsoil and it did take awhile for it to compact back to ground level. It wasn't great, but I did need my 12" trench so I could climb in and fish the wire through the 3" drain I used for conduit. Some people assemble wire and conduit on the ground and then dump the whole thing in the trench. I never had any faith I could do that and have the whole thing stay together since conduit joints aren't glued around here. I suppose that water line may be less of a problem and then I might want a narrower bucket. Probably like you, I'd have a real problem paying $450 for something just to cross a drive a few times. We have very sandy soil here. I haven't thought about it but I'll bet narrow buckets do tend to clog.

Keyways,

Your 14 inch bucket will do 99.9% of what you need and is a GREAT SIZE. 470 bucks for a bucket you will use NOT MUCH is not realistic. I have 12 and 18 inch buckets and have never used the 18 inch. It sits in my garage all shiny and new and I have never used it......but at 200 bucks I thought it was a good investment. The cubic foot difference is 1.5 on the 12 inch and 2.0 on the 18inch bucket(approx).
