I seen one on YT on a Cub Cadet. This guy used a hydraulic cylinder for his top link for dumping. I was thinking of trying something in the Johnny bucket style but mounted on 3pt instead of the front.
Sounds pretty close to what I’m after.

Would one need the hydraulic top link, or would sliding fork on ground be enough to clean it off?

Anyone ever made a 3 point hitch manure fork?

I wouldn’t mind one... in the middle of a thitty job at work... mind tends to wander.

For reference I believe that gate to be somewhere around 5 feet wideView attachment 18010
Used a hand fork to do a couple of those my lifetime . Layer by Layer. Being young and having a really really good back helps.. ;)

Stall poop was exactly why I built my front end loader. With my arthritis getting worse back then, it gave me tunnel vision to get it done. One 4'x8' baby calf stall would whip ya fast with that pitchfork. The straw bedding made it bind like crazy, and real hard to fork out. That's another job I don't miss!

I've never had go do that and boy am I glad...


But what about a Johnny bucket or something like that?
That could work, thing is I don’t have
Correct! I should have added that I was thinking a design like shown, but manure forks instead of a solid bottom. Even then it would have to be sized to the tractor's capabilities.
That’s what I’m thinking too...

If I do go ahead with the build, it’s gonna be made for my Massey 14... it’s by no means small
