What bucket for a skid steer would be best for loading piles of cut slabwood, basically smaller firewood into my dump trailer? or a conveyaor? this pic is similar to a pile i will load into my dump trailer parked right next to the pile, currently i load by hand. My pile may be a little smaller. I was thinking maybe a grapple bucket with a mesh wire between the claws so small peices don't fall out. Also, i've seen a fork bucket with small tubes to get under the pile of wood. Idk if a conveyaor would work if i put it next to the pile and hand loaded onto conveyaor. My dump holds 6-8 face cord and i'm sick of doing it by hand. I load around 40 loads a year and use some and sell the rest. thanks DSC_0023 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
