There was a guy featured in Practical Farm Ideas who had made a tray/platform that hooked onto the dozer blade, carried his buckets, spade and drainage pipe. Looked handy, planning similar here.

Most of my buckets have hooks on top so pick em up with a grader.tiltrotators are great but over half the price of digger on that size of machine.ive had a play but need to think in 3 dimension rather than 2.made a right tit of myself on a demo machine with lots of people watching and those in the know reckon you need 300 hours to get the hang of them.having said that I’d have one but customers won’t pay any extra and yes I’ve asked them

Guess they'd hold their value pretty well though being rare. That said, how many people would buy one second hand on that basis - not much saving on new, but still a fair sum that's hard to justify on a used machine.

Christ its hypnotising, fair play. I really gotta get back to work
That is seriously impressive too! Very skilled indeed. Loved the winding up of the old fence.

That said, it did seem he was making work for himself. Guys I know that do big fencing contracts for the railways would be in there with their digger, rip it all out in one go - bushes, fence and all, chip up any loose vegetation on site and stick all the whole fence in one go in big 40cu.yard hooklift bins to disposal. Probably costs more in waste, but saves a fortune in labour that more than makes up for it.

So far, the UN reported this week, our collective efforts to protect wildlife globally have not succeeded. All 20 of the Aichi biodiversity targets agreed in Japan a decade ago...
