Bucket hauler capacity change

How the new Haul Master modifications are going

Hauling 12 five gallon buckets full of horse manure might work on a driveway without a creek to cross, but I think it's too much for our situation.

I knew it was close to the limit when the ATV spun out going up the ford and required a switch over to 4 wheel drive.

Cutting a foot off the box brings the capacity down to 9 five gallon buckets, which I think will work out nicely if I increase the truck capacity to 27 by stacking and strapping the last 7.

Would strapping over the front end of the box to the metal towing bar help?

A metal band would stop it moving both up and down

It seems that the quad was fixed?

What was the problem with the brakes? (just curious)
