changrider: Nice tractor, the bucket is great for what's design to do and I'm sure u will get tons of work out of it.
ccbbs: It works with any tractor you just need the correct bracket from Johnny Bucket. I've had mine for a few years now and it's great. The video was taken the day I installed it so I wasn't very good at it yet. Since it has down pressure I also use it to life the tractor off the ground if I want to get under it. Put the bucket up, but a cement block under it, and lower it. It lifts it up no problem.
Still no problems with the L120 either.
Michael Johnson: will it work with murrys
mondo78: @skoobz8 It is a useful tool or what I call toy. If your young and n good shape then go for the shovel and wheelbarrow. Been there done that, but now older with a bad back, partly from the shovel and wheelbarrow option, that thing would be a great asset and save my back.
hayliscape: @ccbbs take care of your john deere and it will take care of you... am i right or what?
ccbbs: It can lift more than 175lbs, but it’s not a front end loaded. It’s great for around the yard and really quick to take on and off. There is no question I would do it again.
I've had no transmission problems with my L120 but I'm one to take care of my equipment. The only problem I had was years ago the mower deck lift system broke. They covered it 100%.
bigh4th: hows the transmission holding up on that L120? As many of these as I've seen come thru the shop needing new transmissions just because the owner had a hill, I'd be damned scared to put one of those loaders or any weights on it.
mondo78: @john55223 If you read his comment he said he was using it for the first time. Still learning the ropes so to speak. The unit is a good unit and I am sure by now he is much better at using it.
john55223: I'm sorry but either this is a crap bucket or that u completly dont know the controls u should be able to get alot more dirt in there
ccbbs: A few comments on the video of me. The Johnny Bucket jr was very easy to install and can be removed from the tractor by pulling 2 simple pins. The video was filmed the very first time I had used it. You can see I was still learning the controls :)
I've had it a couple of months now and would recommend it. If you have any questions feel free to send me an email.
