CATTLE AND dairy feeders can grab a big load of silage, corn or hay with Westendorf's new Z-47 feeder bucket, or they can use it to scrape dirt. The high-capacity, clam-style bucket is designed to scoop up heavy loads, as well as grab like a fork and bulldoze like a blade. It is compatible with larger loaders and tractors with a minimum of 100 hp.

The two sets of teeth open wide to handle large round bales. The teeth overlap when shut and will hold 1.5 cu. yds. of material heaped into the bucket. The clamshell design lets the operator quickly unload the material.

Prices start at $3,700. Contact Westendorf Mfg. Co., Dept. FIN, Box 29, Onawa, IA 51040, 712/423-2762, visit or, or circle 198.
