you'll only need a 2nd fermentor if you want to make a second batch before this one is ready, though some people (including me) prefer to rack their brews off of the crud/trub periodically to reduce off flavors. Longer term storage (bulk aging) is best done in glass, though, so if you do want to transfer your cider into another container, skip the bucket and invest in another carboy or the gallon jugs.
just my opinion...........
