My bucket is 5ft long 3 ft wide and 2 ft tall. My question is how much mulch per scoop will that bucket handle? I have done the math but I think Im missing something Thanks to anyonethat can help.

assuming that the machine can handle the weight, it will handle just over a yard (1.1) to be exact that is if you level it all off nice and even, but a good scoop your talking probably about 1.5 yards or so as long as the weight is ok (Volume = w x b x d (5x3x2) = 30/27 (27cuft in 1 yard) = 1.11

assume we are talking about struck load, level bucket load, not heaped.

triangle of end plate's geometry is one half length x width and then multiply by the 5 foot width of the bucket. So. . .

.5x(2x3x5)= 15

15 cu. ft struck load

Well, when I'm loading fertilizer into the spreader I have to know how big as bucket load of fertilizer is!
