Need a 10" bucket, Do I need to pay extra for shipping to the dealer? This normal?

I recently ordered the bxpanded 6" bucket, & ripper & quick on connector.
I assume I'll use that for 4" pipe or smaller .
$60 won't keep me from buying it. I have some clay, I'll need to get the parts & play with them. I'm 8 hours from Pittsburgh, too far.
Good luck, with a 6" bucket and "some clay"!

What most don't realize is that most dealers hide the shipping fees in the retail price they give a customer. Thats just how business works. It's not much different than when you buy a car, or even a tractor as the delivery fees are built into the price.

With fuel costs skyrocketing though, don't be surprised when fuel surcharges come back, LGB.

10” bucket to dig for 6” or 8” drainage pipe doesn’t give you much room to work to make sure your pipe is level or on a grade, and to get some stone and or sand around it for drainage and protection for the pipe.
Read BAP's post at least ten times before you decide on the 6" or 10" bucket!

Seriously...

Edit: I happened to notice you bought that 6" bucket. Coming back to a thread after a week proves my memory is shorter than I thought.

Please do report back with how you like that 6" bucket for your needs...
