we live on a small Hobby Farm. We could really use a tractor but cant afford one right now. We have seen that they sell dump buckets for atv's. we only need it to push and move manure, dirt and snow. Any advice, do any of you own one. Thanks

I think you would have to have hydraulics to have a dump bucket, but you can get dump trailers for ATVs that work quite well. Maybe you could find a used tractor in your area either on Craigslist or on a compact tractor site. I bought a John Deere 2305 and it is absolutely wonderful!

I have a dump trailer for my ATV that I use when mucking out stalls, moving rocks or dirt, and moving brush to the burn pile. It is adequate. I guess it might depend on how much you are moving. The other side of it is that I figure I am getting some good exercise this way.
