 3 PT Scoop

Anyone have any comments on a scoop that can be mounted on the 3 PT hitch, particularly the one from Northern Tool? Does the self tipping feature work OK? Are they useful or is it better to use something else?

 3 PT Scoop

My neighbor has one, and for what he does with it (move mulch, crushed stone) it seems to work great. I was curious about them also, but when I saw how easy they were to back into a pile of (something), pull away, and dump it where he wanted, I was impressed.

That's about ALL I'd imagine it can do, but it does it well.

Front end loaders work much better. BUT there is a $2000 price difference.

I used the little scoop on the back of my Ford for years. Pulling forward works like a slip scraper.

Gravels usually nessetate a minor modification to keep material from wedging between the scoop and the frame.

They work good I used one for years, I moved a lot of dirt with the little Ford and that scoop. I traded the tractor on a new one and got more than I paid for it on a new one.

The new one has FEL and I can move almost 3X as moch in 1 bucket now.

My "Poor mans" Loader. I have used it to move mulch and much dirt. I own a Christmas Tree farm and I used it to fill in tree spade holes. I would drive over the holes and dump the bucket. It has been very affective. I have moved alot of material in a short time. It is not as easy or effective as a loader obviuosly, for $245 I won't complain. From Northern Hydraulic& Tool.
