    there is a lot of inventive people here .got me thinking . some one could make a scoop, like the ones that you can buy for the back of a 3-point tractor, to mount on a ztr with a foot lift or electric lift
    it would only need to lift about a foot off the ground and you could
    run up on a trailer and scoop up mulch and carry it where you need it and if it had a dump and could lift a few feet off the ground sort of like one of those fork lift garbage dumpers you could buy bulk mulch and load it when you need it.
    what do you guys think do we need one for our ztr or not ?

    I have a plow for my Grasshopper, but this is the only "bucket " that I've ever seen.

    it's not ment to do the job of a bob cat .... but for small application .... like if your building a walk way or pond in a back yard with a small gate or narrow path .... load her with sand, gravel or rock

    take a yard of gravel ..... move it 100 ft ... shovel in the barrel ....move the barrel & unload go back .... do that for 2 hours .... the guy with the walker dump would be down the road cutting grass nn not a sore back

    one could "mod" it for a lite material as mulch .... but we used bagged mulch for under 10 yards ... have a little trailer for the Walker.....load it up with about 20 bags a trip ... n drive back to the hard to get beds ....;->
