    Default Narrowing a bucket

    8ft. wide bucket from a Lull. Customer needs it to be about 6ft. wide. Their reasoning is it gets used to load the salter/sander in their pick up & it is wider than the unit so salt is always being dumped on the cab or on the spreader motor. New bucket is $3500 so this one gets narrowed. Even if they bought a new 6ft. one this one would rot away in the back so this was the cheapest option.

    Cut 10" out of each side because that is what was in between the wear bars. The finished unit will be 6ft. 4in. All tacked up now, just need to weld it up.


    I should of noted that the only thing they use this bucket for is loading salt & banking snow piles after large storms. Not really the perfect machine for them but this is what they got.
