Help, anybody make a carry all box for front end loader?

Help.

I just bought a Case DX33 with L130 loader for use in my apple orchard. But since I have this, it might work pretty nice for firewood too. I just ordered a quick attach bracket for the loader so bob cat style implements can be easily used. Will get pallet forks first thing.

What I am contemplating is a box that can be picked up with pallet forks. Wood would be split and thrown into the box and then taken to another spot and stacked. The bucket itself is not near big enough for this. The size would be so that it hold 2/3 of a face cord, aprox. 40 cubic feet. ( matched to carrying capacity of the loader)

Right now I have the rounds stacked, the wood is split and immediately restacked but his is really slow when using the capabilities of a 4 way wedge. Letting it fall to the ground is a hassle having to pick it back up.

A friend of mine dissected a 300 or so gallon IBC plastic tote. Removed the plastic tote part, and a little reinforcement around the cage, and he had a cheap box he uses for the same purpose you’ Looking at.

Re: Help, anybody make a carry all box for front end loader?

Seems a bit redundant. A loader bucket is a "carry all box". If it's too small, perhaps add some side and back boards to increase capacity.

if you really want a separate box, maybe add some side walls to a pallet.

There are also some examples of 3-point "tractor carry-all boxes" on google.

Yeah... Till you go to move wood from the pile to the house. Throw the forks on, drive out there to the pile, grab the box that's already full, bring it to the house. Mno need to get off machine to stack the wood in the bucket, then pull it out of the bucket to restack it again. Helps to have multiple boxes


Overkill.
I love overkill.

We also use these, we have ten in total. They work great! With them fully stacked, they hold about a face cord. Now, in theory, that should be about 900 pounds (mixed hardwoods) + the weight of the cage. Now, with the fully loaded, the ck30 (similar to your machine) can’t lift them more than 6” with 950 pounds of ballast. Which is enough to move them around. I have thought of using the loader + 3 pt pallet forks, then being able to carry 2 cords of wood.

Nice looking machine!

Re: Help, anybody make a carry all box for front end loader?

2x6's, 2x4's and 1/2" plywood. We make boxes like that for every job for trash and scrapping out job sites.


3 2x6 rails on the bottom boxed with 2x6's and 5 uprights with a top plate with 2x4's, then cover it in plywood. Done.

You can make it to whatever size you want, then just make fork pockets in the rear for the forks. You can add holes for a chain/strap to hold it to the loader so you can dump if you wish.

Been driving Deeres since 1974, Dodges since 1984, and Davidsons since 2004. Love my wife and kids I'm a blessed man.

Well when buying used, you sometimes have to get what ya got. My priorities were:
a. Able to handle the air blast sprayer
b. 4wd
c. Turf tires to not tear up the lawn
d. NO EPA emissions standards on motor
e. Low hours and in very good condition
f. Low enough purchase price that I could buy out of "mad money" and not take anything out of the bank.

The size of the bucket was not a huge priority and now with the suggestion of an IBC tote I can get for free, I think the solution is at hand.

Thanks, that is great input. I have a ballast box right now but it is full of crushed rock. The fines hold water which I do not like. I am probably going to empty that out and fill with river rock which should be heavier too.

I would be tossing the wood in loose from the splitter so 2/3rds of a face would fill the tote and bring the total weight down quite a bit.

Re: Help, anybody make a carry all box for front end loader?

Ok,
So I did some calculations, and 2/3rds of a face cord is 21.34 cubic ft, which = 640 lbs. the stripped totes weigh about 50 lbs, so that is 690 lbs. so, 690 + 200 - 250 lbs for your pallet forks, so you should be able to lift it enough to comfortably move it around. I looked up the specs for your loader, and it will lift 800 lbs to full height at the pin. It has a breakout (lift, not curl) of 1,600 lbs at the pin, so, in theory, it should do it comfortably.

Re: Help, anybody make a carry all box for front end loader?

I hope the frame of that tractor was built for the loads and ballast you intend to use.
There are always trade offs when using any kind of machinery. One is safety
I hope yours is feasible.
On a side note. Most loader manufacturers offer weld on brackets to install on anything you want
