Self-Load Bucket For Easy Bunk Feeding
You'll like this tractor loader feed bucket from Cop Engineering in Derbyshire, England, designed to load itself and feed most any free-flowing bulk material, including silage, to livestock.
The triangular-shaped bucket is fitted to an otherwise standard hydraulic loader equipped with power tilt (a power pack kit for loaders not fitted with power tilt is available). You fill the bucket like any other loader bucket by scooping it along the ground. In transport, the bucket is kept in the horizontal position, and tipped vertical to unload into bunks or onto the ground when feeding livestock.
"The bucket will hold 30 cu, ft. and handle 700 to 800 lbs. of feeds or other materials. It has no moving parts, is low in cost, and lets you save time by loading and distributing with one machine," says Smith, Cop sales representative.
The 30 cu. ft. feed bucket sells for $850 in the U.K. A 37 cu. ft. model is also available, for $940.
