 4 in 1 bucket for a BX23...

I'm sure one of the aftermarket companies, there are several, makes one in a size that will fit. It will however come at a price. In both dollars and function.

A 4-in-1 bucket is heavier than a standard bucket, a LOT heavier. Every pound you add to the dead weight of a loader is a pound less that it can lift.

I'm not sure a BX has many pounds of useful lift to spare.

If memeory serves me correctly, a BX23 only has about 450 pounds of lift at the bucket mid-point. Any 4-in-1 I've seen in that size (for a SSL) weighed about 350 pounds.

You might be better off with forks instead.

Best of luck.

A couple of things to point out.First the difference in weight between the 2 buckets would be all that matters,not the FULL weight of the 4 in 1.The lift capacity is figured without the standard buckets weight!Second the lift capacity of the BX is 460lbs at full height.

Point well taken.

I'll have to look into it.

If the 4-1 leaves me with some reasonable lift I'll get one. >380 lbs would bee satisfactory. All I have to do is look around to see multiple uses for it.

Thanks,

DT.

You may be better off with just a grapple on the standard bucket. Weight and $$$ wise.

Jeepers, that doesn't make sense to your arguement, if the lift capacity is at full height it would mean you have LESS lift at ground level not MORE.

A FEL is an exercise in leverage using hydraulics, the further out the load, the less lift capacity you have, when the FEL is near the top of it's arc it is almost overhead, and the length of the 'lever' is almost zero, is when it develops the most capacity.

Dollar-wise AV8R's idea is sound, but I don't think a regular bucket, plus the grapple, would weigh any less than a 4-in-1 would.

Best of luck.

And where do you get that? "Lift Capacity at full height
460 lbs." That is a direct quote from the Kubota BX site!Breakout is 950lbs,they do NOT list any halfway measurements!I don't get where you are getting your numbers! Also how is it I am in error?I know what you said,I am just saying I see NO halfway point maesurements given.There should NOT be much a difference between halfway and full anyway.
