RE: Swisher Front bucket loader
An ATV really isn't heavy enough to be a bucket loader. I liken them more to a lawn tractor wagon that yiou don't have to worry about backing up. They're rough as can be on ball joints, I can't envision them being "good" for any front end, but they definately work if you aren't digging in anything hard. A local landscape company uses one a good deal, but mostly for mulch and topsoil that are shoveled in, shoveled out. It'll pick up off the piles just fine, but actually digging is usually asking a bit much.
If that suits your needs, I'd recommend it in a minute. The construction is good, the attachment wears ball joints if it's used a bunch, but is very stout such that it's hard to "break" anything, then there's several other fairly usefull tools in the lineup.
