Scoop Tote.  Hauls, scoops, grades, and more.

Scoop Tote.  Hauls, scoops, grades, and more.

I have one of those I have yet to mount on a tractor.  Mine is the sleeve hitch version.  I contemplated converting it to use it on my Ariens 3PH.  I have a sleeve hitch adapter, but it will push the bucket out farther than I like for leverage/center of gravity reasons.  Mine has the scarifier teeth on the bottom of the back side of the blade.  I think it has the bolt-on teeth for the front of the bucket as well.

 

As far as favorite attachment...I would have to go with the Ariens GT Bagger-Vac in the fall.  It makes leaf collection so much easier.  I have a lot of leaves, so I'm a little biased to that attachment!  =)

 By far the front loader gets used more than anything even the mower. I would be totally lost without it.

The carts. I use one most days for hauling all kinds of things. Two tractors are pretty much dedicated to carts. Good Luck, Rick

The MRS.

 

She can mow the yard,  haul out the trash, rake leaves,  plant flowers, hold the bolt head that I can't reach while removing the nut, bleed brakes, tow in a broken down tractor, bring me a drink, shovel/blade snow,  remove and roll up ratchet straps when we get to a show, pull me out when I'm stuck, and a bunch of other things. 

She's also really good at talking me into buying that next tractor that I have pretty much talked myself out of because "I don't really need another tractor"

I have lots of tractors and attachments but not one attachment can do all she can.

No doubt about it for me.  The forklift attachment on my 1886-01.

 

Invaluable when:

 

Moving large heavy attachments.

I would have to say the front blade.  It gets used year around.  Every time I take it off, later I wish I hadn't.  Used it again this morning clean up under the apple trees and shove them into the loader bucket.  Winter of course is snow duty.  Early fall is garden clean up.

Same here, FEL is king.  Used all year round, likely every other day use average.

Mine right now is the scoop tote I have on the back of my Ariens GT 3pt. Next would be my Earth-cavator. Heck, I like all the attachments. :D

 

 

If I ever had a FEL I know that would be my favorite.

When I get my tractor with the front end loader running, it will likely be my favorite, however it is not a garden tractor. For my garden tractor it would be my tiller, which sadly is also not running yet, waiting on the post office to deliver parts.
