Scoop-Bucket (and Buck-Rake)

Another Earth Tools-designed implement, as a result of popular demand! We’ve had MANY requests over the years for “a front-bucket” to go on a walk-behind tractor…well, HERE IT IS!! Plus, we threw an extra twist into the design: Virtually INSTANT changeover from Scoop-Bucket to Buck-Rake, using the same frame assembly! Buck-Rakes have been used for years on larger tractors in Europe (and some in this country) for gathering loose hay in a field. One United-Kingdom-based company [Tracmaster] produces them to fit walk-behind tractors…so we figured we could do it too! Our Buck-Rake also features tines that are individually replaceable in just a few seconds.

Buck-Rake attachment for loose hay

There is a handle that extends back over the tractor, and this serves 2 functions: it allows for instant “attack-angle” adjustments with a lever-operated release system, plus it has a “trip” mechanism for dumping the rake or bucket forward, which instantly re-latches when unit is lowered.

Bucket "tripped" for dumping (rake does same)

Quick-change system with locking latches

If the mounting to the tractor uses a PTO quick-coupling, the “male” coupling can be oriented with either a “slot” or a “hole” for the locking-pin of the quick-coupling…this allows the rake/bucket to either have some rotational “float” OR be “rigid” with the body of the tractor.

Rake "canted" forward (Bucket does same)

Rake "canted" backward (Bucket does same)

We came up with a robust 3-point “quick-change” system with locking latches, which holds the bucket or buck-rake securely in place on the frame, and allows for easy changes in 30 to 60 seconds. All components of this system ship by motor-truck freight. Some assembly required.
