    There's some forthcoming video clippery, which is a bit more juicy.

    I'm not positive but I think the backhoe wins there. The breakout with these buckets will be close to the same as using the regular loader bucket. The difference is that you can get all of that breakout force way down deep into the ground whereas the bucket can only get a couple of inches down. Still, not positive.

    This things is AMAZING for transplanting. You'll see soon, buddy.

    I've tried transplanting saplings with the backhoe. I've destroyed more than I transplanted because the boom/dipperstick destroys everything in the process. Plus, the movement of the bucket tends to disrupt the root ball, shaking much of the dirt loose. This scoop slips right down under the roots and picks up the whole area relatively undisturbed, crucial for the tree's recovery from the move.

    Granted, a 2-3" tree is about as big as I would expect to successfully move with this, depending on the type of tree and type of roots (due to the size/type of roots).

    Well it will certainly beat a shovel which is how we've been trying. Lucky to get 2 trees a year done.

    Our are hemlock trees that are typically 1.5' - 2' tall. Amazing how big a hole you have to dig to get the proper root ball as you say - seems big when you are using a shovel anyway.....and shouldn't be.

    Now that's a great addition to the Artillian system. How long is the bottom lip of the bucket?

    I was holding out for the 24" forks for landscaping/transplant work, but this bucket looks like it will work much better, and they look about the same length.

    I'm almost ready to convince the wife and pull the trigger on this one.

    This bucket is about 2/3 the length of the Landscaping forks and wouldn't be great for moving 1800 lbs of something flat, but it is probably more versatile for yard work. The 24" forks will be better at prying up old concrete or popping big tree roots, things like that. They're a workhorse. But this bucket will dig holes, obliterate brush, move soil, etc.

    We're almost out of this first round of these already. We'll be getting more going asap.

    I wonder what the life of the teeth will be? Perhaps we'll see a Ver. II at some point with a replaceable tooth bar or one with individual replaceable teeth like those on a bucket tooth bar.

    A bucket like this is PERFECT for anytime you want to dump any kind of material in a small spot - like filling in a hole or something. Trying to use the standard bucket is always a challenge as typically material gets spread out over the 53" length. I've had some luck trying to dig into a pile with just the corner of the bucket but as soon as the tractor shakes around the material ultimately spreads out.

    THANKS, Chris, for posting the pics! I'm super excited about getting SN-0001 of the FrontHoe Bucket as soon as possible!! It looks bigger in the pics than it did in your CAD rendering - which is good! I was hoping to be able to go down about 18" and your "2/3 the length of the landscape forks" comment puts it right in that neighborhood.

    Looking at the pics, I'm thinking this might finally be what I need to pop out the honeysuckle around my property. The honeysuckle is generally fairly shallow rooted so I'm hoping I can get under it with this and then use the teeth to grab on to it to drag the honeysuckle where I can gather it up fairly easily for chipping later on.

    I have a few other projects in mind around here too! Can't wait to see the juicy "forthcoming video clippery"!!

    Let's hurry up and get these things shipping!!

    Darned if I can get these dadgum videos to show up, but here's what we could whip up for the time being. We'll be doing more when time allows.
