On my John Deere 4600 compact I spent an extra $1,000 to have a 4 way bucket. I bought this machine new in 2000. Well guess what ,I will not buy another loader without one. I use it for everything,seldom do I need a chain to lift anything.Putting logs up on the saw is a breeze and I can use it to turn the log to where I want it.Pulling stumps ,just drop over it,push it,pull it a couple of times and bite it,lift it out of the ground.Both of my farms were overgrown with brush and hogging it off made it look nice but the brush just gets mad and grows faster. With the 4 way I pull the brush roots and all.Once you get the hang of it the job even goes quickly. I use my Deere in my small site prep business and do a lot of prep work for concrete floors ,driveways,footers and such.Doing tearouts with this setup makes me a one man band.I load whole slabs on the truck ,can bite them ,get them to lock in the bucket or,scoop up pieces. Flip the banjo up and you have a dozer blade.when I do grade work I don't even have to shovel that last pile that you chase around with the bucket. Just open the clam push the pile and bite down,with practice you get every scrap.
