I made a sleeve hitch for my old 112.

These might not be technically attachments you're really thinking of, but they still attach to the tractor/mower.

I had a decent sized load of dirt in the bucket (42” wide so not a huge bucket) and it was doing fine. Biggest downfall was the cheap actuator for the bucket tilt was only supposed to lift 200lbs and that broke already. New stronger actuator should be here Friday and hopefully will hold up better. As far as the frame, it’s honestly stronger than I expected and hasn’t had any issues yet.

That's cool, at least it works! So your load was too much for the wimpy cylinder. How did the cylinder fail? Break? Leak?

The cylinder was fine. Since it’s on a 330 which only has 2 ports the loader frame is hydraulic and the bucket tilt is electric with a linear actuator. That’s what just snapped when I drove into a pile of dirt.

Nice...good work. Suggestion: if you haven't already done so, take a Sharpie, etc., and mark the back/side of the bucket and across the mounting frame so you can see easy reference marks to indicate when the bucket is level for scooping. I marked my Johnny Bucket Sr. on the 430 in this fashion and it's a big help.

That looks to me a little scary to me.

An electric actuator? That seems like a not-so-good-choice for the task.

Type in little green monster loader on YouTube. There are some examples of them working quite well with strong enough actuators

Sears uses electric actuators in the rear for 3pth and the other type of lifting stuff like sleeve hitches etch

I'd have liked a bucket that size on my Brantly. The one on it was too big. Not the width but the volume. Was great for moving mulch but not so much for other work. This loader was self levelling too. I didn't like that. I prefer doing it myself.

Army that bucket does look a bit large. Good looking rig you’ve got there. I wouldn’t mind finding a loader for my 400.
