    What kind of brackets will I need to put on a bucket to fit this head. Would I need to get euro brackets?

    The head is on a tanco loader IMG-20200325-WA0003.jpg IMG-20200325-WA0002.jpg IMG-20200325-WA0001.jpg

    You'll need to do some measuring to confirm but that looks like a Tanco headstock to me as in their own brackets.

    It's either a Tanco or a Rossmore .
    But if it's a Tanco loader , I'd say its Tanco brackets you need . The little handle for shutting across the locking pins is the same as a Tanco 978 I have here

    Looks like the tanco quick hitch, had it on 988 loader year's ago. Found a scrap bracket rest used at other jobs.

    have you many attachments already?

    I'd be tempted to suggest you consider ditching it and going for a euro headstock. would open up the biggest range of attachments to you and if you upgrade your tractor or loader in the future it will most likely have a euro hitch on it.

    They've gotten quite cheap over the years.

    Here is Tanco 978 head.

    And hooks to suit it . 1st type slightly thicker heavy duty type , made by a lad from Limerick who used to be on donedeal . I wouldn't bother with them again , as harder to pick up, due to little room for error.
    Other type was on a grab that came with the loader . Simple , cheap and does the job.
