I've been looking for ideas or plans to build a front bucket for my '71 GT. I like the Johnny Bucket Jr., but don't especially like the price. I'm DIY'er and believe I can make something that will do the job. This morning, I stumbled into this photo and it has me intrigued. I already have a 42" blade and something along this line would be an easy fabrication. And I can see several ways to improve this idea.

The question in my mind is; does the lifting hydraulics for my blade have enough power to lift any kind of meaningful load in a contraption like this? If so, the advantage of this is obvious. No need to switch back and forth between blade and bucket. Pick up a load, carry to site, dump and with scoop raised high, use the blade to level. Go back for another load and repeat.

That is a very cool idea, my only concern would be if the mount will accept the weight of the load, and the bumpy ride that goes with it. I'm anxious to see how it turns out. Good luck!
