Simple search on the internet yields 100's of options available.
They come in variable widths and teeth / no teeth options.

So I was after a Land Pride CB 2574 combo bucket for a used L47 I plan to pick up next week. I have loads of excavating and some brush pick up. My local shop advised the following

" The bucket you are referencing is engineered to fit a skid steer. While it will attach to your loader, it's substantially heavier than what Kubota recommends for the L47."

Does anyone have any experience with this and should I avoid a Combo Bucket?

For brush, I would think a grapple would be better, and cheaper. You could install one of those tooth edges on your normal bucket.

My 4 in 1 weighs 700lbs, is 70"width and has teeth. It is rated as medium duty and is for a large tractor or medium size skid steer. I have loaded and weighted rear tires (about 1300lbs total) I then add a 1k ballast box. My tractor does fine pushing and filling bucket. Dry material it lifts everything, wet it struggles with a full load. Lots of flexing and bouncing.

I purchased 4 in 1 thinking it could dig well and replace a grapple (dealer agreed). I was wrong, a grapple can do much better than a 4 in 1 in brush and debris. If dirt work is the primary job a 4 in 1 will work but a dirt bucket with teeth might work better.

Your "local shop" is giving you good advice!

I have an L48 (slightly larger than your L47) and would not even consider a 4-N-1 bucket.
Much too heavy!

If you were closer I'd buy it. I want something for grading and landscape clean up.
