Rear scoop size?

Last spring I bought my first tractor. A 1950 8N, and it had a few implements that went along with the deal. All but one fit the tractor well. The rear scoop, while I can attach it forwards or backwards, is pretty big for the tractor. It is 42 inches wide, and heavy enough that it limits the amount of rock I can lift. Does anyone know what size the original, made-for-8n rear scoops were? And I'd like to identify the one I have but there is no writing or tags on it at all. Any suggestions on what to look for to figure it out?
Thanks in advance.

All of those Dearborn box scoops were the same size. We filled the front tires with water for a counter balance. Those were fantastic scoops, I still own one.

Ha Joe, I think Soundguy and Henry are on to something, Granite is about 175# per cubic foot.

Ditto what Philip said. I have a tractor supply / KK 30" rear scoop. I can fill it full to the brim when backing into a non-packed dirt stockpile.

I'm guessing the scoop weighs about 200# or so, giving you an easy 500# of material to tote. As another responder pointed out.. you can hit 500# with a few big rocks fast.. especially flint and granite and similar dense rocks.

Joe, Tractor Supply offers a King Kutter brand in 30" and 24" width. I purchased the 30" width 2 years ago and have used it many times. Just the right size for holding capacity and digging power. Be careful backing up into hard packed substance, rearward facing scoop likes to bend tractor parts. Philip.

Joe, I have a Dearborn rear-mount scoop and don't know the exact width or weight, but it sounds about the same as yours. They were made mainly for moving dirt, for which they work very well. When you fill them up with rock on the other hand, ole Bessy ain't gonna lift em (front wheels gonna rise after about 700 lbs). Rocks are heavier than dirt. Solution, tote less rocks.
