I put my Johnny Bucket to the test

Picked up my Johnny Bucket Jr. from John last weekend. I drove the 7016 off my truck and into a pile of 2" wash stones. I had to use both hands to lift the bucket. I drove into the shed and dumped it. It was so much fun that I used it to move about 20 bucket loads. By then it was dry enough to mow the yard so within 10 minutes I had the bucket off and put away and the mower deck on and was mowing the yard. Boy that Hydro and a 48" deck sure beats my Homesteader with the 36" deck!

Rick, How much weight would you think you were hauling in your bucket that it took two hand to lift it? During testing your bucket, I was able to lift a 220lbs man with one arm but it was a struggle. John Scheele

Comparing it to the 5 gallon buckets that I was previously using to carry it by hand, I would say around 300 lbs.
