Nice. You'll really like it. I have a JB Jr, and it works great!
Ditto! I can't say enough about the Johnny Products. They have made my life much easier.

Congrats! You'll love it.

I have a Jr for my 3225. My wife says it's one the best tools I've ever bought. (and I got it used off Craigslist!)

I look forward to hearing about what you can do with the JB Sr!

I saw the one for sale on CL in Conn. It has 2 sets of hydraulics to it. I added on set but didn't want to go another $300 for a second so I'll have electric dump.
  • mkhurley sounds like fun...I have about 300 square feet of 2-3" sumac trees that I have cut and after pulling a few by hand decided the bucket was the way to go...I live out near Harper's Ferry and would consider some work share.
  • Of interested to all you potential JB customers. I spoke with John and am actually getting a JB bucket SR for the John Deere big tractors. It will have a higher lift capacity and 3.5 cubic feet. It uses the JB hitch so the leverage is better (I guess). He says about 400 lbs instead of 200..

Nice. 400lbs is a lot of material. Should work out really well for you.

Pullin the stumps by hand?? That size a chain on the tractor wouldn't do it?? I pulled some 8-10" clearing the area where all the gravel is going, but I used my GMC Denali... :fing32:

I was more kidding about coming to MD, I have 3 boys that are very talented with mexican backhoes and they have already started making a dent in the 13 tons.

Here is the pic of a 'full load'

I told him that I wasn't sure the CC hydraulics could handle what the deere can but I did believe it would be better. Apparently the lift is a more efficient design and the bucket is a bit bigger. I'll post some measurements when it comes. I have a quick hitch (for sale actually :thThumbsU $250) so I'll do some rough measurements when it comes.

OK sound good. I am growing a full set of mexican back hoes myself.

You didn't want to burry that electric fountain cord? tsk tsk :sorry1:

Actually, at my house we have a similar space between the front door and the garage. I am going to show your picture to my better half and see what she thinks. I am so tired of mowing and trimming it.

Hi,

Was trolling around the different sub-forums and came across this thread. The JB Sr. is a beast and your going to love it. That extra lifting power from the hydraulics is awesome. I have had the JB Sr. on my JD 445 for a little over a month now. I have had it stacked full with rock and it never gave a complaint. Also, in this Picture, you can see that I was able to rip out Mountain Laurel stumps (root ball and all) with the JB Sr. I did a total of about 23 stumps in two hours.. the only time I got out of the seat was to snap that picture (about 18 in the picture). Gotta love it!

I will say this, The Sr. model is built like a tank and has shrugged off all the abuse it has gotten so far. The thing is made extremely well. If the JB Jr. is made anything like the Sr., then I think anyone will love these products, no matter which one you get!
