Got the chance to break out the 61" bucket this weekend to spread some compost loam. I took 2 yards out of my landscape trailer in about 10 minutes with that bucket, probably about 6-7 loads. It covers most of the width of the 6' wide trailer bed, but fits just right between some tie down shackles I have in the floor.

For light bulk, that bucket is the cat's meow on these 2X20's. I'm looking forward to attacking some snow piles with it this winter. What a difference between the 49 and 61.

Hi TT,

Great question. It's been hot and dry lately so this soil had almost no moisture content. Plus, it is half compost, half loam so it is about the density of mulch. This was my first use of the 2520 / 61 bucket / rake (yes, it's a Woods 60" LR) so I took it real easy. It was close but I had no problems. As always, I keep the bucket low and I only had to roll about 20 feet for this task. If any of these factors were different, I'd have changed to the ballast box. Glad you asked.

I'm with JD755. The 53" bucket on my 2520 seemed to be a good choice to be as wide as the rear wheels.
