    Just wondering if a bucket off the front of a Case 580 M will pin on to the front of my 580 SL. Anyone know?

    it will fit no problem, L series & M series are the same dimension for the loader frame.
    you can always fit a K series bucket as long as you don't have a quick coupler. the dimensions are the K series bucket are different but can be ajusted with the top links. one thing to watch out for when switching buckets, look at the bucket stoppers. if they are not well ajusted it can do some damage !

    Thanks for that. My machine is a pin on - not quick connect. I have a snow bucket off of a K on my machine. It pins but runs at a slightly different angle. I didn't know about the M. Perfect, thanks.
