"Bucket Barn" For Skid Steers
Gabriel Verleun uses four different kinds of buckets and forks on his skid steer loader. He used to park them on the ground, but other equipment would get in the way and in the winter he had to shovel snow off the buckets to find the one he needed.
  To solve the problem, the Prince Edward Island farmer designed what he calls a "bucket barn" to get buckets up off the ground while also taking up less space. It's made from 2 by 4's and plywood and measures 7 1/2 ft. wide, 3 ft. deep, and 8 ft. high. There are four compartments. From top to bottom he keeps his pallet fork, dirt bucket, scraper blade, and manure bucket. Each attachment lays on a pair of 2 by 6's laid lengthwise.
  The structure is anchored to the ground by a pair of wooden posts on back and there's a plywood roof on top.
  "It's really handy and also saves time. I can unhook one bucket and immediately hook onto another one and take off," says Gabriel.
