I just finished my 16” backhoe bucket for my GC 1710.

I made this a little bigger than the OEM one. This was a little challenging because all the top part is ” and 3/8” steel. That is a little thicker than I usually work with.

I did a test dig and it was working well. It will be my go-to for thumb use. My other bucket is 10”.








The OEM bucket was like $500 plus truck shipping I have about $125 in this bucket the teeth were $57 of that. I still have steel left over for more projects.
