    Frontier Rock Bucket

    Does anybody use a rock bucket? and if so how well do they work? I was looking in the Fronteir brochure last nite and seen them and it looks like the ticket for what I need this summer clearing some rocky ground. Any info would be great.
    Thanks Jason

    Got the quote back from my dealer $1950 + tax a little steep but I got about 9 acres to clean up so it might be worth it.

    What kind of material you have where you are?
    I would imagine the dryer and sandier the better it will work on a tractor.
    The key to these buckets are fast shaking. That's easier to accomplish on an excavator.
    Wet clay based I imagine will be tough.

    I've used one on a 5103 a couple years ago. I clear the rock out of the field next to me. It worked great, but I could see where s grapple rock bucket would come in handy. I found that when it was wer, the larger rocks would slide off the bucket due to the wet mud.

    My soil is mostly dri and mostly top soil so I would think it would work pretty good. The other thing would be once I'am done with it I would think it would be hard to get rid of. It wouldn't be so bad if it didn't cost so much.
