"Bucket Basket" Mounts On Front Or Back Of Tractor
Richard Pulliam recently sent FARM SHOW photos of his new "bucket basket lift" that's designed to mount on the bucket of any front-end loader or attach to the tractor's 3-pt. hitch. It can hold 1 or 2 people.
  "It provides a safe and secure work platform for doing any work that would otherwise require a ladder or lift. It takes less than 5 min. to mount with no tools," says Pulliam.  
  The unit consists of a square tube frame with an expanded metal floor. It measures 30 in. deep, 5 ft. wide, and 42 in. high. It comes with a door on one side and a 28-in. high safety rack on back. The operator drives forward until the bucket slides into a V-wedge at the bottom of the basket, then raises and tilts the bucket until the basket slides into place. A pair of 6,000-lb. rated ratchet straps are then wrapped around the bucket and hooked to 2 metal cups on each side of the basket.
  The basket can also be 3-pt. mounted and is equipped with a tailgate that can be used as a work bench, a large rear access door, loading ramp or as an extended platform to carry large equipment.
  A dual receiver hitch can be used on either the front or rear of the basket for moving or towing a trailer.
  "Works great for cleaning out gutters, sawing tree limbs, and so forth. The front side of the basket is fitted with 1/2-in. steel rod tool hooks, allowing you to carry ropes, chains, pole saws, chain saws and other tools. The expanded metal floor is slip proof."
  The Bucket Basket sells for a special introductory price of $1,995.
