August 10, 2010 Handy Hint

Brush-moving attachment

For trimming and hauling brush, this device, which fits on my skid steer, is by far the best labor- saving item I have ever constructed. It could be almost any size, but you will need forks for the skid steer loader.

Loading limbs is easy and when you get to the pile you simply remove the front two posts, lift the brush and deposit it on the top of the pile. A chain from the forks to the device keeps the brush hauler from dropping into the pile (it is very important); 4 x 4s and square tubing for holding the 4 x 4s plus just about any scrap angle iron are all that are needed to create the attachment.
