Slick Scoop Made From Old Bathtub
If you've got an old bathtub laying around on a scrap pile, you could turn it into a scoop on the back of your 3-pt. hitch. That's what Merlyn Rieffer, DeSoto, Mo., did with an old cast iron bathtub his brother-in-law gave him.
  He scored it with an angle grinder and chiseled along the groove to break evenly. To make both long sides look even, he took off the lip on the tub that would normally face away from the wall. The frame is made from scrap metal.
  "When digging dirt, the pressure is exerted along the back top side of the tub which is thicker and also along the side rails that are bolted through the tub at three places," he says. "Dirt comes out easily because the tub is so slick."
