      This dang rock was heavy....the bucket is 47.5" wide and 14" deep by 14" high.....that should give you and idea how big this rock was. I was really please how easily I picked this up (wife has lots of huge rocks like these she likes to have me move around and a regulary basis....kinda like furniture...lol

                Bob it looks good, and so does the grass around the tractor. Looks like you must be taking good care of it also. Yards around here are looking pretty good but my grass doesn't look near as good as your crop. Any way nice job on your project it looks good. Gerald

                  Bob,

                  Great job! Great photos! Your grass hurts my eyes to look at. Mowing every other day?

                      It's a shame to get that bucket all dirty...looks real professional....I like those capped ends on the tubing too. I can't help thinking that you are heavily influenced by Junkyard Wars, though! What else can you make that x475 into??

                            Your bucket looks great!

                            I really one to build a front end loader for my Craftsman garden tractor but don't have the $$ right now to start.

                              Bob,
                              Looks great! Why didn't ya paint it John Deere Green? I agree with Sundown, I am glad my wife doesn't like heavy rocks.
