The Ai2 Products Kubota BX Attachments 60” light material bucket was designed specifically to work with the BX tractors and loaders. It gives you the capacity that the factory dirt bucket doesn’t have for moving light, bulky material like leaves, mulch, wood chips, firewood, snow or anything big and bulky! It has over twice the volumetric capacity of the factory dirt bucket.
The shell and sides of the Kubota BX Attachments 60″ light material bucket is constructed of 12ga mild steel to keep the weight to a minimum and the shell has viewing holes cut into the back of it to give you better forward visibility. The leading edge of the buckets sides have been reinforced with .25” gussets to prevent deforming and strengthen the sides for years of hard use. There are also 2 internal reinforcing gussets vertical with the back of the bucket to help keep the back of the bucket straight and absorb the impact of the tractor when being used. The mounts also have a 2” tube that lays across the top of the hitch points to help spread the load of the tractor out across the entire bucket shell and not just where they are welded. The bottom of the mount also have load spreading gussets welded in and land right at the bend of the shell for maximum strength and rigidity.
At the front of the bucket lays a massive .5” x 4” 1055 grade carbon steel cutting edge, this is the same grade material used on the big skid loader buckets. This also has holes cut into it for an optional bolt on cutting edge as well.
The bottom of the bucket hasn’t been forgotten about either. We covered that with four .25” x 3” wear bars. These are designed to take all the abuse of being drug across the ground all day and not wear out your bucket shell. The two at the outer edge also create a bucket curb guard to prevent damage to the lower edge of the sides.
This Kubota BX Attachments Light Material bucket can be pinned directly to the loader like all of our Kubota BX attachments or used in conjunction with the Ai2 Products Kubota BX Attachments Gen2 Quick Attach or the Kubota BX 6315 factory quick attach. This bucket is ideal for the landscaper and contractor that works in nice yards but wants to use the Kubota BX to prevent damage but still move a lot of material reducing time and giving them much more productivity. I have many small property owner buy these as well for the same type of use!!

The best attachment I have for my BX1870! Customer service is outstanding and I highly recommend the light material bucket and Ai2 in general.

I can’t believe how much this holds! I cut a lot of firewood, and use my BX for moving it. The original bucket, fully loaded (to where straps are needed to hold it all together) only fills half of this bucket. Just got some top soil for gardening… this easily held twice the dirt of the original bucket. I love this bucket!
I cut up a bunch of firewood, and got tired of the little stock bucket on my BX24. I purchased this LMB, and it is just a complete game changer. For a test, I used the stock bucket and completely filled it up (using straps to hold everything on). Dumped it, put on the LMB, and using the same wood loaded it all into the LMB. Not even half full. Hopefully Tony will post the pictures that I sent him to show this.
With this bucket, it makes it easier to have the back wheels come up off the ground. Just be careful not to overload, or use a heavier ballast in the rear, to prevent this.
