Heavy duty loader bucket

Hi , has anyone got any ideas on who makes a good solid loader bucket . I have a quickie at the moment but could do with a heavier duty one . I seem to be at the current one with the welder more than I would like …


Could be Evans and Reid-have a bucket 24 years old, only wearing edge replaced!
I bought an Evans & Reid 7' bucket in 1997 for £400. Replaced it for a 8' three years ago and sold the 22 year old one for £400. I'd replaced the wear strip three times and always washed out after use and it was still sound.
I had a 6' silage grab from them last week. Very strong and British built.
