Re: What have you used your SCUT for?

Yesterday, I finally sold an old basketball goal, which included a sand-filled base. IIRC, I filled that base with about 350 lbs of play sand. When I posted the ad, I informed prospective buyers that they needed to bring a truck and I would load the base into it. Well, this particular buyer only had a Ford Expedition, so that was gonna require a little precision.

I've not done much rigging with my loader, so I took it slow. I have a pirhana tooth bar and bolt-on hooks, which I used for securing that base inside the bucket with a nylon strap. I wrapped the strap around the corners of the base then looped it around the hooks. There was enough of the base inside the bucket, so it didn't really want to tip out. I lifted slowly, of course, and my poor front tires showed their dismay. Even with my box blade on the rear, those tires were struggling. I inched closely to the rear of the buyer's vehicle and I probably had about 2 inches or less of clearance on each side. The buyer guided me in pretty well, and I didn't scrape anything. I went inside as far as possible and started tipping the bucket forward, as he pulled on the base to get it off the bucket. The challenging part was getting it over the tooth bar, which has a set of "fingers" on the top side of the bucket blade. But, once there was enough of the base resting on the inside of the cargo area, a good final tip of the bucket as I backed up, got it off.

I kinda felt sorry for them, because they were gonna have a hard time getting that out. I suggested using a few 2X's as a ramp to slide it down. Hope they got some help!

Re: What have you used your SCUT for?

Sounds like some precision work on your part. Now he wishes he had a loader. Two guys would have a tough time removing it without damaging the vehicle.

Re: What have you used your SCUT for?

Just moved this last year. Prepared the new place for house, cleaned up house site after house was finished. A lot of drive-way work involving a lot of rock and chat moving and grading. Use draw-bar on 3pt to move trailers around. Have hauled everything in the FEL.
Mowed a lot!!!

Re: What have you used your SCUT for?

Less than a week in, so far I have graded the drive way, hauled some rocks to fill a low spot, moved several large tree branches from the yard and cleaned out part of the barn.

Last night we got a real gully washer, and now the drive needs some further attention.

One of the plans over this long weekend is to move my ladder stand to a better location.

How did I ever get along without a FEL?

Due to a stick wiping out the drive belt on the ztr, the Iseki built Bolens got the retro-fitted Snapper ztr 60 deck hooked up and took over mowing duties.
