Does anyone know if someone makes a slotted loader bucket for light tractors? The slots filter out dirt and keep rocks, helping clean up a field. If they aren't made, does anyone know why not? Milford Welding makes one for skid steers that seems right for the job I have, but I'd like one to fit a JD4100. I've attached a link to the Rock Bucket site by Milford. Thanks in advance for any help you can give. JonB

Yes some one posted a link for a rockway bucket, landscape bucket recently. I would think you need the quick connects.

Peter, thanks for the reply. My only concern with the Rockway Bucket is $4000+ pricetag and the need for hydraulics. The slotted bucket I'd like to find would simply attach to my loader, hopefully in place of the existing bucket, and have no hydraulics. It probably wouldn't work as efficient as the Rockway Bucket--but it's much less expensive, and perhaps for versatile. I also want to scoop up loose dirt up to 12" down, and sift out rocks. So has anyone else seen a rock bucket for a compact tractor?

I don't know where you are located, but there are several excellent models made here in Canada. I'm sure they are sold in your area also, I will check into any links I can find. Best of luck.

OK this is not necessarily what you are looking for but cheaper that 4K. It is new to me. I have no idea how or if it works and I guess it would depend on how big the rocks are. See link.

I couldn't find the manufacturer I was thinking of, but I think this is what you are thinking of. Best of luck.

Thanks Murf. They look great and are exactly what I need. Just as helpful is the name "stone forks." I've found at least the one other manufacturer, and can start looking for one to fit my tractor. For those of you who are interested, I've attached a link to a page with a streaming video, so you can see the stone forks in action. Thanks again. JonB

Have a look at www.easternfarmmachinery.com they have rock buckets on their site with pricing and sizing. They were the original importer(20 years ago) of the Vreten Stone forks that Degelman is now selling.

Well, I made the plunge and ordered the stone forks. I researched, spoke with dealers and contractors (a speciality item), looked for used ones (none found), tried to find rentals (nope), and even considered alternatives (too expensive). In the end, the stone forks at Eastern Farm Machinery (thanks Murf, thanks JohnJ) seemed best for my 4100. They may be too wide at 53" and 550 lbs., but I can cut the ends off weld on new side braces if they're too wide. They should arrive within a week. I'll let you know how they work. JonB

Did you get the 3" or the 2" tine spacing?
