    Mulching with The Bottomless Bucket

    That is a cool implement, but I can say from experience overloading the smaller bucket on the BX is very dangerous. I tried to load 8 bags of wood pellets into my small steel bucket and almost tipped the tractor over when I put in the last bag on the loader. With our bucket, the extended...

    Mulching with The Bottomless Bucket

    Thanks very much for your thoughtful feedback. If you happen to read through the posts, I think we've avoided attacking anyone personally and only tried to offer explanations to the posts here, many of which were quite disparaging of us, which is fine. As for the rising costs of aluminum...

    Mulching with The Bottomless Bucket

    If you watched my video you'll see I had used a 12 foot Lawn Glider and pulled the glider off the trailer with the 5 yards of mulch on it. I couldn't flush my bucket with the driveway while scooping the mulch because I'd ruin the glider under the mulch. While you may talk a good game, I don't...

    Mulching with The Bottomless Bucket

    As we've said before one of the advantages of using our bucket is that it saves your lawn because you're driving over it far less with our bucket. Doing the math 17 yards would have taken you 85 trips over the lawn vs. 17 trips with our bucket. By the looks of it, you destroyed all the grass...

    Mulching with The Bottomless Bucket

    I used an Easy Glider to pull the mulch off the trailer so that was under the mulch requiring to be careful not to catch and rip up the easy glider. If you watch the video, you’ll see me removing the Easy Glider once I had removed enough of the material. I was not sandbagging…

    Mulching with The Bottomless Bucket

    When we started this project a sheet of 10X5 aluminum was $325 and due to the commodities inflation brought in by our POTUS, that same sheet costs $700+. We knew the price point had to be closer to 1K vs. 2K but I agree it’s not for everyone. As far as usage, I actually use mine more than my...

    Mulching with The Bottomless Bucket

    The fact is, when we first started this project, a 10x5 sheet of aluminum was $325 and then due to The Biden Inflation that same sheet increased to $700. The Bottomless Bucket has gotten a lot of positive feedback, but the price were forced to charge due to the commodity prices sky rocketing...

    Mulching with The Bottomless Bucket

    You likely didn’t see that I had used an Easy Glider under the load of mulch that allows me to pull the mulch off my trailer and onto the driveway. With that under the mulch, I have to be a bit more careful when shoveling the mulch so that’s why my bucket wasn’t flush to the ground. If you...

    Mulching with The Bottomless Bucket

    Clearly you haven’t worked much with mulch. It doesn’t resist the bucket like dirt and stay in place. It moves around on the driveway as you try to scoop it up. You might get a half bucket on a good scoop but then you’re shoveling the rest. I’m able to swap the buckets in 35 seconds so...

    Mulching with The Bottomless Bucket

    Did you watch the video? I didn't touch a shovel to fill The Bottomless Bucket. My point was that if you use your steel bucket to mulch your gardens, you'll have to have a shovel handy more often than not to completely fill the steel bucket.

    Mulching with The Bottomless Bucket

    Those are cool buckets but even the lightest weight skeleton buckets weighs in and over 200 LBS and you’re not going to get a full yard of material in it. The Bottomless Bucket is 168 LBS empty and a full yard of mulch is about 600 LBS. You could see on the video that we we’re close to maxing...

    Mulching with The Bottomless Bucket

    If you watched the video you could see many scoops were half full or less. If I’m using just my steel bucket and wanted to fill it to the max before going out to the beds, it would mean using a shove to fill it. All kidding aside…

    Mulching with The Bottomless Bucket

    Well it's that time of year and we're laying down yards and yards of mulch. We used to use the trusty wheel barrow before we got our BX 1880 and last year we used the bucket to move the mulch, but here's the challenge with using that small tractor bucket. The first is that it's hard to get a...
