Should work, I have run 331 buckets on a 337. The 337 buckets are heavier duty.
these buckets still have the lifting lugs on them but somebody cut off the pin holes ?? My bro saw them at a scrap yard he goes to to get steel and thought i might be interested..36 24 18 and 12" buckets, by the part numbers his local dealer says they are sever duty 337 buckets. My bro says they look almost new ...paint still on them ..just no pin holes ..looks like someone took a torch to them. if the spine where the exchange slides on is the same as on the 331 i'll have him get them and weld on some bosses for the pin.... any thoughts????

you could make them work I am sure , you will have to watch the bucket will hit the boom cylinder as the 337 is a longer bucket , if you can get them really cheap it would probally be worth getting them welded to fit your machine as it sounds like they ave been cut on

You could probably weld them up, they may have been recalled buckets. Bobcat makes you cut part of the bucket off and take a picture to prove you destroyed the bucket. Buth the ones that I have seen they usuall cut the lug off that you are talking about.
