 Snow sticking to bucket

PeterI'll take a stab at it. #1 is your tractor stored indoors warm and toasty? If so when you move it outside come back in and get dressed for the weather give the bucket time to cool down. #2 If you store outdoors and your bucket is cold if you get down close to the ground the warmer snow is going to freeze to the bucket.

I've heard of guys stealing the wifes PAM to spray their buckets me thinks it might work but seems like it would get real expensive. You might even try rain X or silicon spray.

Also try banging the bucket when you empty at the bottom of the curl ussually if you rattle it a few times snow will break loose.

When parking put your bucket in the dump position and let the buchet rest on the cutting edge. I try and keep mine in the dump position most of the time when outside waiting for temps to adjust.

I know some days its worse than others for sticking but mostly I believe its difference in air temps and snow temps.

Mine is parked inside by the wood stove so I do have some problems with it now and again.

Around here a lot of people keep a sprayer with diesel fuel in it to spray a coat on the inside of the bucket before moving snow.Of course this probaly isn't the best for the environment and I'm not recomending you try it.. but it does seem to work.

I keep my machine in an outside shed and back it out while it is warming up. Then I put up the folding ROPS, hook up the box blade, then go back inside for a few minutes. This allows the hydraulic fluid to warm up as well as let the bucket adjust to the outside temp. I haven't had any problems with snow sticking to my bucket. I will probably keep the inside of my bucket coated with this waterless carwash stuff I bought over the net as it seems to work real well with the cars as far as keeping them protected. It is on the expensive side, but it has wax in it and I don't have to deal with water in the winter time.

I use salad oil in a 2 gal poly sprayer and when I have time coat the bucket with a heavy COAT of car wax. made nice blocks of snow for the kids snow fort with the bucket !!!! Wax works great for the box blade too/pusher.

 Snow sticking to bucket

Somebody a long time back talked about a spray used for blower chutes as well as loaders. I can't remember what it but not something found in a kitchen I think. I forgot about it since it's not enough of a problem to cause me to look for a solution. I do have a special broom though. One end is for clearing the blower chute and the other is for getting snow out of and off everything before I put the tractor away. The broom is special because I used it for spreading pea-gravel over tar. It's now retired and banished from everywhere except the tractor shed.

You can buy mold release spray which is used in the plastic industry. I am not sure what the price will be?

Try spraying the inside of the bucket with 3M Solid Film Lubricant. It needs 24 hrs. to cure but holds up well and is pretty much impervious to anything sticking to it.

I use 99% pure spray silicone spray (Food Grade. I purchase it at the local hardware store for about $6 per can. Make sure to get "Food Grade" silicone as it has a higher % of silicone. Iusually spray 3-4 times per winter. The key is to spray on a heavy coat and allow it to dry throughly. DO NOT wait until it's time to plow to spray the bucket.
