Default Massey bucket repair

The Massey came with a bucket that the PO converted to a manure bucket. I have wanted to remove the teeth and put on a cutting edge since I got it. Today was the day. Torched off the teeth and support brackets.

The PO had extended the front edge of the bucket 7" when he put on the teeth. The 7" strip came off easily, only welded at each end. Then I found it already had a cutting edge, so welding required. The bucket is now a bit smaller but all I use it for is removing snow drifts in the winter and the occasional moving of a dirt pile so it is plenty big enough for me.

Next I need to add a bucket level indicator, as I cannot see the front edge of the bucket. The indicator will tell me when the bucket is level.

looking forward to the bucket level indicator. That's a real PITA with my AC tractor. I normally have a bale spear on it so a level indicator isn't a big priority but when I put the bucket on it, I cant see crap from the seat.

Yeah, and it's also nice when something unexpected turns out to be a plus instead of a negative...

That looks great!! Are you sure your cutting edge isn't a moe board that a cutting edge bolts to.

It is 3/8" thick and beveled at the front. Looks the same as the 3 I have laying around.

So I've heard mole board as a term and never given it much thought, never have heard moe board but hey I don't get around much.

Most of the time I was dealing with heavy equipment and most cutting edges were referred to as cutting edges or what they mounted to called a frog.

Dialect is a funny thing. When I want a good deal oxy/act tanks or accessories I search craigslist for a settling torch. Shit you not there is always some torches for sell pretty cheap listed as "settling torch".


Searched google for "mole board" and found several variations. Turns out it's moldboard which is even dumber sounding than mole board.

Glad you brought this up Chris! Nice work on the bucket.






I have no formal training. I did read about it on the net though......
