Loader Bucket Hitching Blocks

South Dakota farmer Darren Wipf's Loader Bucket Hitching Blocks (simply two parallel concrete blocks) not only keep the bucket up out of the mud/snow/dirt, but also make it easier to see when hitching/unhitching. Straps bolted onto the backs keep the bucket from falling off the blocks when it's pushed ahead. A similar strategy is to park the bucket (or other loader attachment) on a concrete pad.
