Changing Buckets on the Yanmar Mini Excavator
Excavator man brought three buckets with him. He changed buckets a couple of times. I was surprised how quick he was, but then I thought he had been pushing and pulling pins. It wasn't until he was packing up to leave that I saw that the machine has a clamp on the end that engages two pins on the bucket, making changing buckets quick and easy.
This whole project is probably going to run between $500 and $1000.
