Burn Bucket Fits On Front-End Loaders
The lowly burn barrel recently got a huge upgrade with the Burn Bucket that mounts in place of a front-end loader bucket. Built after a request from a customer, the design went through four revisions, says Mike Whitethorn, an engineer who worked on the project. Burn Bucket mounts in place of a front end loader bucket and is designed with a clam shell dump.
Quick tach fittings make it easy to pick up a box and dump the ashes.
It’s designed with a clam shell dump to make the box easy to fill and then empty after burning. Preventing it from warping was the biggest challenge, and software was used to analyze heat distortion.
“Every bend is placed strategically to control the warp,” Whitethorn says, and the A36 steel boxes remain straight so the top and walls open and close as designed.
With plenty of openings for air flow, fires burn so hot and efficiently that it incinerates combustible materials and can even melt aluminum cans and glass bottles. With internal dimensions of 48 by 24 by 32 in., it can burn a lot of material at a time. When the fire is out and the box cooled off, the
quick-tach fittings make it easy to pick it up to dump the ashes.
“A lot of our customers are farmers or people with acreages. Most rural Americans burn trash, some want them for burning tree
limbs. Also, construction companies use the Burn Bucket to burn leftover scraps at job sites,” Whitethorn says.
The Burn Bucket sells for $945 assembled and ready to pick up at the Madison, S.Dak., business. Or they can be boxed and shipped for customers to assemble themselves. The Burn Bucket is estimated to last around
10 years, depending on factors ranging from geological location to materials that are burned. Replacement panels can be purchased.
