    We load a whack of triaxles every storm, top 1/3 of load is harder to do cause bucket can't be tilted down enough to empty it. Has anyone seen a self empting bucket when level??? Combo bucket?:help:

    A 4 in 1 bucket may help you, you can open it up to dump the salt.

    check out a "roll-out" bucket it has cylinders on the botom of the bucket and a hinge on the cutting edge so you can dump about 3' higher than normal.

    we have a744 with a 10.5 yd high-lift roll-out on it. i'll try to find a pic

    Couldn't you just build up a ramp so that the loader is higher, or dig the ground out a couple feet would be safer.

    A ramp wouldn't be practical, I'll do 16 sites in a shift. I like the hi dump.

    Well you could get a high tip bucket or a ejector bucket. SALOPEZ has one, and its freaking sweet. We can use our 773g or his 205 to load a triaxel or his tool cat to load his single axel. Only problem is it small capacity bucket and bobcat no longer makes it. They where about $3600 New, somehow he found this one for $850 NOS.

    we had an ejector bucket to load a mulch blower. I wouldn't call it great though. I thought it was real slow to load. We were used to using 1 yard buckets to load mulch. That ejector bucket had to be one of the smallest that I've seen.

    I ordered a high dump bucket from NC, should have it next Wed.
    Can't wait to see if it will perform like I'm hoping.tymusic

    I would say that you found exactly what you needed. That is a good full load on the truck.
