That's a really well thought out setup. Someone really did their homework on that. There must have been a lot of hours invested in the build. The price is a bargain for anyone who needs something like that and has a big enough tractor to pull it. Too big for a GT I think!

I can testify that you can do a LOT with something like that. My dad bought one that was all MANUAL, no hydraulics. The three point hitch lifted and lowered the bucket to cut into the ground, and the bucket was balanced so a simple catch could be released to dump the load and spread it. We used it with a MF 165, I'd guess it was about 6 ft wide, 2ft or 3ft long and 2ft high. The companion tool was a three point hitch blade used by a MF 240. We used that combo to build an earthen dam about 1/4 mile long, 30 ft high, and I want to say 100 yards wide at the broadest point. Dad was keen on using hydro power from the two rivers that bordered our property.

I think that would be very useful for someone with some site leveling to do, or a long driveway to put in/maintain. It would likely be too much for a GT to handle, but a compact should have no problems. I just had to share it... it looks like the guy did a good job designing & building it & the price seems more than fair.
