I have the first style. Awesome for demolition and debris clean up. I plan to get the root grapple style one too for tree work.

What is the advatage of the first one over the second one or the other way around. I have one buddy telling me to get the second style,and a different friend telling me the third style ,but neither like the first style. I really dont see where the first and second would be that different.

It's pretty clear the first one has a solid bottom, the others will let dirt drop through so you're not hauling chipping or burning it. The first is better for tree guys working on hard surfaces etc that you want to scrape up. The second has a bigger floor for carrying material, the last is set up more to rake through the dirt taking out roots

Each bucket has its place. I have a Virnig version of the first bucket, great for demo projects. I have a Saber Tine bucket from Quick attach that I use for trees and moving rocks and such. It all depends on what you need the bucket to do.

hey cutter this is the style that i have and i love it. i think that it all depends on what you want to do with it and your machine. Lot of it comes down to personal preference. I like mine because it had 2 independent grapples so you can hold some odd ball size stuff. Works great for all the work i do.

To tell you guys the truth I really dont know what it will be used most for. I am the kindof guy that dont hire anyone to do anything for me around the house/shop, and also the kindof guy that doesnt really turn work away no matter what it is. Really I will use it for everything, i may tear a house or shed down, rip up concrete or blacktop, move rock trees who knows.

The root style is good for cleaning debris more than the flat bucket.

We had a flat bottom on but we also had a Skelton bucket when needed
