My brother just bought a new 4310 the dealer talked him into a 72" bucket. I think this will limit his ability to lift and dig as well as make moving around in tight spots harder. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I use a 72" bucket on my TC45. I think that the JD 4310 is just over 30 HP, so it is probably a bit large. ....

The Deere specs refer to those larger buckets as suitable for high volume/light weight materials.

If he is going to scoop earth/dirt/rocks he may need a lot more rear ballast to keep things in order.

I can't find the specs for that exact loader but on the 4100 if you go from a 49" standard bucket to a 61" bucket the capacity increases from 6 cu.ft. to 10.7 cu.ft. or nearly double. That 4.7 cube increase would put up to another 500 pounds of material swinging in the breeze out there.

Tell him to be very,very careful.

Better yet, tell him to take it back unless he is moving grain or cleaning bedding areas, which is what I think that bucket is designed to do. ....

Bucket size is a tricky thing, when it's time to dig soil, or move gravel or other heavy stuff, you'll want a bucket no wider than the outside of the tires, probably a 5 footer.

However, next February when a couple feet of the White stuff blows off Lake Erie and lands on your driveway you'll be wishing for a 10 footer with high sides and back.

Of course you can always get both...

Best of luck. ....

Snow bucket? I didn't think of that. Excellent point from the Murf-meister. ....

That's OK Mark, we don't need to worry about about flat tires from cactus's either, or Mustang poop in the driveway for that matter..... ....

Thanks for the replies. He also got a 72" MMM and thinks he can leave it on when he is digging leveling ect.. I think ground clearance will be an issue, and he could damage the mower again any thoughts would be appreciated. ....

As long as he stays out of the tough stuff he probably can, if however, he strays into some wild terrain it could get real expensive, real fast.

Best of luck. ....
