Just what is a Johnny Bucket?A Johnny Bucket is a radical new
front end loader
design that enables a home owner with their own lawn or garden tractor to transport material from a pile to all over the yard without the hassles of renting or owning a conventional loader .
Why don't I just rent a skid steer loader to do the same job? In some cases a skid steer type loader is the only answer for your
needs, but lets face it, most of time "the common man" only needs to transport material from point A to point Bnot to load trailers and dump trucks at their houses. The garden supply centers only
needs this loading capability.
Skid steer loaders are very heavy, destructive and dangerous to operate. These types of loaders weigh on the average of 3 tons (6000 lbs.). When driving them over edges of
asphalt, they can crack and do permanent damage to your
driveway. While driving them on your lawn, they can cause soil compaction and even rip
it up because of skid steering. A skid steer loader requires allot of skill to operate and can oscillate wildly out of control.
Why not use something your very familiar with like you very own lawn and garden tractor.
Would you use a sledge hammer to swat a fly?No of course not, that is why the Johnny Bucket's light weight and easy hookup makes
it right for "you", the "common man with the common yard"
You can own a Johnny Bucket for about the price as renting a skid steer loader.
A skid steer loader's rental fee can cost up to $400 for just one
Saturday and most times you have to borrow or rent a truck to haul it to your house. For
a little over twice that money, you can own a Johnny Bucket for not just one Saturday but a lifetime of Saturdays
and never have to return it!!.
Are you still not convinced the Johnny Bucket is right for you?

Why don't I just get a conventional loader
attachment for my tractor? A
conventional loader attachment can cost up to $4000 and the tractor that
will handle it's weight is close to $10,000. That's $14,000 total. With
a conventional loader, they must be bolted on and can take hours to install. This commitment makes it impractical if you want to use your tractor for lawn mowing
etc. In most cases the average home owner may just want to move mulch, dirt or gravel over the weekend.
Time to shed that conventional loader PIPE DREAM!
As children most of
us played with TONKA™ trucks and loaders in our sand boxes
scooping and dumping. This conditioned us to believe that the only kind of useful loader is a conventional one. I too had this same mind set and was skeptical when I built the first Johnny Bucket. Once I started using it
around the yard, I soon realized that I never needed to load things, just move things around. I still am amazed every time I use mine on how handy these attachments really are.
