Some pictures of the bucket in use.

My wife was using the tractor to clean up an area of leaves we didn't get with the leaf vacuum last fall. The size/depth of the bucket makes it pretty easy to rake/shovel into, especially compared to the original shallow bucket.

The other pictures are spreading topsoil/compost at a camp in Pittsfield. There's a wiffleball replica of Fenway park there, and we were there to improve the soil/grass. There was 10 yards of compost/soil to spread. I could just about heap the bucket with topsoil, and lift it to around 6-7 feet. Not full height, but would have loaded a pickup. Pretty happy with the design so far for an all purpose bucket.

Great work on building that bucket. Looks great.
