I am planning on buying a scoop for my 9N.
I cannot find any in my area, so will probably have to special order. What is the "best" brand?
I have seen the following in catalogs, and on the net- Howse,(looks like junk), KingKutter,
(looks strong), and Modern Manufacturing,(I know nothing.) Thanks

ANYTHING Howse is prettymuch low dollar but still useable if you are easy with it and dont overload it. Modern/Dragon is made in Beaumont, Texas and should be of top quality, Anything Modern is about my favorite.

There was a similar post and many replies about a month ago on this site (probably back on page 4 or 5 by now.) I have a Ford rear bucket that I use on my NAA. It's a 706, about a third of a yard, and is just great. Many of the brands of others I've seen are rather lightweight and not reversible. This one is reversible and heavier built than others. Also, it has a lever that trips the bucket rather than ropes and pullies. It's much simpler and easier but you have to watch the kick back when the bucket comes back and closes, it can jerk your arm around if your not careful. I don't know if you can find any of these old Ford buckets around used or if they still make them, but if you can you won't be disappointed. I cleaned out a small tank with this bucket a couple of years ago. It took me a few days but it was more than able to the job and much cheaper than a dozer.

Look carefully at the dump latches. The scoops with the latch on the scoop work better / easier than the ones with the latch on the frame. On 8N's and later there is sometimes clearance problems with frame latches that are centered with the swinging drawbars.
As far as holding up, with only N power any will stand up.

I've been using one I bought a couple years ago at Tractor Supply (TSC) for about $219 on my Ford 4000. I think it said not to use on tractors over 40 hp. My Ford is in the high 40's hp. Anyway I've given it some pretty tough use and it's still holding up ok. It's real handy for moving heavy things around besides just moving dirt and gravel.
