    I have a big job brush cleanup to do tomorrow, about 7 loads in total in my truck... I work solo and was wondering what the best way to load this with a tractor might be? It will take me a very long time as some of the pieces are bigger if I have to do this all by myself. I almost forgot to mention that I only have the bucket, no grapple or this would be a no brainer. Thanks in advance!:usflag:

    Sounds like your up the creek without a paddle. Hire some day labor?

    Yeah I know! She is my neighbor and just brought it up to me today when I got home from mowing. Tomorrow is the only day I have open so thats why its so short notice. I wish I had forks, do they rent just forks?

    2 hooks on either side on the top, smooth bucket. What are you cooking up? Most is limbs and things so roping individually would be a pain.
