What keeps it from tipping under load?
It is clamped using the 4in bucket
I open the bucket. The front c channel goes under the front edge and the back one sits on the rear blade. When I close the rear c channel is clamped. This also pulls the rear channel under the dozer blade.

1st and last pics show this

Nice! Looks like it will work great and easy on and off. Would like a bucket like that on my B2650.

The 4in1 is a factory kubota bucket.
Here in Oz this is standard equipment. Its more unusual to not have a 4in1 which does not seem to be the case elsewhere.

Some pics and the part pate for the bucket are here

The only changes from factory I have made are a level indicator and bucket hooks.

You can see the indicator in the first pic. Its a simple bit of flat bar bent to vertical and horizontal.

I could not put hooks on top of the bucket due to the cover plate over the hydraulic hard lines. These run over the top of the bucket. Simple solution was to weld them inside the top edge of the bucket

Whipped up a hitch from steel laying around the shop today.



The main RHS is 65mm x 65mm x 5mm

I can just grab it with the bucket


Nice job! Hey what brand is your 4-in-1 bucket?! I have been looking all over for one just like that! It looks like a perfect fit for your bx and I have the same loader

Very inventive. Would like a close up pic of your welded-in eye/hook in the bucket, as I also have a 4 in 1 and trying to decide where to fix a hook. TIA. I bolted some clevis type chain hooks to either side but need something more general for a D-shackle or strap in the middle. IMG_5156 (1).jpeg
