This old unit has paid for itself 2 fold over the last year. I was thinking of making a light 36" bucket for loading loose dirt. Also thinking about fitting a hydraulic post hole digger with reverse ability. This unit is a Sherman Power Digger 54B100. (Wain-Roy)

What have you done with your add on diggers and full grown backhoes?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeI have the book on Wain-Roy And The Invention Of The Backhoe. Not in front of me but it mentions at least three different sized buckets were available. That mechanical thumb would be a handy option.
MARKCT, did you install a new lever for your auger? Can't tell if you have an old trackhoe or a small dozer.

A smooth edge bucket is very handy indeed, I use mine a lot for feeding my screener and backfilling, also I wouldn't want to be without my thumb. Another very useful attachment I made is my hydraulic drive brush cutter. Also for a different excavator I had I made forks, very handy, and of course a hydraulic auger as you mention

Big buckets usually with flat front edges are common for loose material.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
