    Sold my House in town and will be moving out to the country soon. Have to move some landscape rocks.

    Those here who know me will reconize the SnowBlower back mount bracket now working with the Swisher bucket on the ATV.
    any way heres the Pics
    Roll the rock into the Bucket.

    not the fastest operation in the world but sure beats moving and lifting them by hand.

    that is all sublime out.

    Looks like that little bucket works pretty good. It picks up bigger rocks than I thought it could handle. You must have to go in 4wd right?

    for just 3 rocks I had to use 4x4 to get started out moving.


    it was work that is for sure but it would have been alot more work with just a 2 wheeled dolly and doing it that way.

    yes it did. other wise I might of had the rear tires off the ground trying to pic them rock's up.

    I also put in them rubber bushing adapter's in the front springs to held with the front end nose diving due to the weight. it was a pretty big load on the ATV I'm sure but better the ATV then my own back LOL

    sublime out.
