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.
