Figured I would try it. Worked not bad, but a hydraulic loader would be better. This one is operated by an electric winch. Won't lift as good as hydraulic.
It was fun to try any way. One plant at a time.

Nope.  Use a potato fork.  That loader still scares heck out of me! :rolling:   :wave:

Interesting to say the least.

Is there any time savings there, or were you just itching to find an excuse to use the loader? Lol

I think you found the real reason for this! But, if it works, why not!

I bet a manure fork type bucket would work even better!

Thanks Noel, I can almost smell them and the dirt in that one photograph.  Looks like it worked pretty well.
