    it was on a "E" but it will fit any 744 and most large frame loader's....i measured it against a 5.5yd CaT bucket that was on a flatbed the other day and it measured the same......i dunno what the bucket that i saw fit?

    the bucket has about 150hrs on it and most of that was loading loose dirt.

    i didn't need a severe duty when i bought it but it was the only thing i could find and i had to have it shipped here from sothern texas

    Thanks for the bump 245ME
