 430 Heavy Duty Bucket Question

What is the difference between a 73" standard and a 73" heavy duty bucket and is it worth the cost?

 430 Heavy Duty Bucket Question

The heavy duty bucket has reinforcements on the sides (extra plate of steel welded), and other reinforcements

I bought the HD bucket (dealer didn't think I needed it) after seeing my neigbor's (non JD) bucket after years of use (bent in middle, etc.).

I don't recall what the price difference was.

I have learned over time that on the 'farm', it is usually better to opt for the heavier duty implement in the long run.
Also, everything purchased for the farm comes with 000 after any other number Smile

 430 Heavy Duty Bucket Question

Just found out that my neighbor last weekend ran into a tree stump clearing snow with the bucket. It is now a triangular bucket .....
( and I mean fully triangular - it is impressively bent)

Looks like the heavy bucket only cost $100.00 more than the standard, seems well worth the extra money.

Just remember that if the bucket doesn't give when you run into something the shock will be transferred elsewhere. Hit hard enough and something is bound to give. If you're lucky it will just be a hydraulic cylinder seal, if you're not you might bend or break something really expensive. It's always best to avoid running into stuff Smile

 430 Heavy Duty Bucket Question

I purchased the HD bucket when I bought my 430 loader and it was well worth the extra $$$. My brother inlaw bought the standard bucket and had xtra reinforcement welded in and it still isn't as good as the heavy duty bucket.

 430 Heavy Duty Bucket Question

Yes get the heavy duty bucket, if my memory is correct it cost 100.00 more than the standard. I got it on a 4300 new in 00. it's moved lots of soil, crushed rock, snow and other than paint scratches still looks like new. Early this winter I bought another 430 loader for my 4310 that has the 4 in one clam bucket, It works real nice for gathering and carrying brush, but haven't really had it long enough to know how it will hold up. Frank.

 430 Heavy Duty Bucket Question

I have a JD 4 in 1 bucket and have had to have the blade cut off and a new one put on. I havn't got the final price yet but I wonder if others have had any problems with the blade being damaged. I am considering buying the heavy duty bucket and using the 4 in 1 less often. I don't know what a JD heavy duty bucket costs, but this is crazy to be cutting off the blade and re-welding one on. Woods makes a 4 in 1 bucket with a removable blade so what gives with JD. An earlier post suggested I have the bucket modified to accept the removable blade. The price on that was $1300, so if anyone knows how much a heavy JD bucket for a 4310 is it would be quite a help.

Oly, there is an alternative method to the welding that could have saved you some grief, and maybe some cash. The bolt-on replacement cutting edge for the 6ft HD JD (110 tlb)bucket mounts to the bottom of the bucket with seven counter sunk bolts. Grind the damaged edge so that it will mate flush with the bolt-on edge, clamp the new edge in place, transfer drill from the bottom, and c-sink the seven holes, (nuts go on top)and now you have a replaceable edge. Yes, the new edge will be fatter at the lip, but I still think it is cheaper than welding. Once I plasma cut a damaged edge off of a Woods five foot loader bucket and rewelded a new edge on. I must have gone through an easy $20.00 worth of mig wire and the better part of a day. The plasma cut was the toughest to make straight, required grinding a bevel all along the length of the area to be welded, before welding, but I took it slow and it worked out well. I think you may be able to bolt on the replaceable edge as described above with the JD 4in1.
