    Put the bucket down, flat on the ground. Use two chain's that have at least one hook on each chain. Hook one end of each chain into the hook on each end of the bucket. Stretch the chain's out on the ground in a X pattern, or maybe straight out, that might work better. Put the brush in the middle of the chain's. When you have decent load, throw the chain's over the top of the brush and hook the chain's back into themselves or to the bucket. Now you should be able to lift the load. The weight of the brush should make the chain's tight. When you have that load on your trailer, unhook the chain's that you threw over the top of the brush and use the tractor to pull the chain's out from underneath the load. See the illustration. I hope this make's sense.
