I have an "earthcavator" attachment for my Simplicity Sovereign 3012 that looks alot like it. Mine does not have the rear wheels.
There was a real good thread about this last summer.

Hi Scott, we had a discussion and Old Buzzard shared a video with us.
I had forgotten about the post but remember it now. Great story about your dad building the dam. Man we need to build one of those that could be used with out the hydraulics!!
I guess what surprised me about the ad is that it was not a new piece of equipment but rather an old garden tractor implement from the past. One I had never seen used for sale. Thanks for all the feedback.

The Internet has gotten SO BIG! Looky what I found
I wish the image was larger, but this is the general type I was talking about. The lever in the back is the one you pull to release the scoop to roll and dump, and it looks like there was a cable that ran from the front apron to the top link, so that as the lift arms went down the apron went up. Hook it up to your hitch and go. On our Masseys, the worst part was constantly changing the gears ( 8 speed gear box) . Drop the scoop, shift into low, 4th was usually ok. Then pick up the scoop, back into high, start in 1st to transport.
Here is the website if you want to dig around more.
