I saw an advertisement for a shovel type attachment for Bobcats where they had a video using it to dig up bushes, digging holes to plant trees, etc. I got this wild idea to build my own using a broken shovel, and some 1/4" wall square tubing. I already had the attachment for the Bobcat mount to use an insert with 2" ball to move trailers, so I thought, what the heck... I threw this together in about 20 minutes, even putting a brace on the underside for support. I know some of you are thinking "What is that little shovel going to do?" Well, I went out back to an area where there used to be a garden, and I started digging. I literally tried to break this thing, forcing it in the hard, dry ground. It really surprised me. I dug a big hole about 2' deep in less than a minute. I can see myself popping up dead bushes, maybe even small trees with this thing. I sharpened the edge with my grinder, and that helped.
My other project (the 5x10 trailer) I started this morning and I will have it finished in a day or two. I need fenders and some more metal for the drop gate. Ain't welding fun?
