Up till now, If had to move dirt or mulch around the yard, I had to shovel onto a mini trailer then shovel or rake it off. Once I figured the spacing of the lift arms, I welded some adapters on the dirt scoop frame and made the requisite cat 0 pins. With in a half an hour of mounting the scoop to the 3 point hitch, I was already planning for the 80 plus yards of loam for a lawn an several hundred for the drive way. The scoop dumps easily if most of the load is forward of the pivot. Depending on the lift height of your tractor and extension of the top link you may have to trim the locking lever, I did. Delivery from Agri supply was fast and hassle free. The tractor is a white gt1855 18hp Briggs and Stratton vanguard v-twin, and 5-700 lbs of lifting force. A 24” reversible type for scraping in the forward direction. = Digg ThisAdd To Del.icio.us Add To Furl Add To Reddit Fav This With Technorati Add To Yahoo MyWeb Add To Newsvine Add To Google Bookmarks Add To Bloglines Add To Ask Add To Windows Live Add To Slashdot Stumble This =
