5 gal Bucket holders

Recommended Posts

Ok guys I am looking to try and jimmy rig something that I can attatch to my rear rack of my yamaha grizzly. I have a plastic box that takes up pretty much the whole back rack. Have any of you found a way to secure two buckets behind the wheeler. I don't want them dangling, but don't need them to carry that much weight either. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

CA

Square plastic milk crates work real fine, they hold either a five gal. bucket or a 20 lb. L.P. cylinder. I bolted two together , hold them on with rubber tarp straps.

I just looked at Northern's web site, and that rack is $59.99. I believe you go around the bars of your rack with some brackets. The pic I posted was not my wheeler, I just pulled it from Mad Dogs HSOforum.

Check out Cableas--They have the three bucket system, and the nice thing about theres is that it folds flat to the rack when you are not using them. (under search put cableas three bucket system) It was on sale for 49.99 + shipping! I love it, it carries all my things for ice fishing + more!! I have a Polaris Explorer and it took me about 15 minutes to put it on the back! Good luck!

It kind of depends on the configuration of your back rack. They fit real good on my 2002 Sportsman. However, there is some room between the rack and the fenders to screw the nuts onto the bolts that hold the bracket. A friend has a 2006 Sportsman that has no room between the back rack and the fender. He also has the metal railing around his back rack and has a plastic box on the rack. He had a guy cut the flange off the rings and then re-weld it at a 90 degree angle so that he could fasten it to the railing. Works good. The Mad Dog bracket normally is held on by bolts going down threw the rack and through another metal plate that is supplied and then you put nuts on the bolts. However, you have to have enough room between the rack and the fenders to get in there with your fingers to put the nuts on.

puddleduck,you have answered a question that i have been meaning to ask. I have a 2006 sportsman also with a rack extender. I bought the bucket holder only to find out that the mounts are right where the rack extender bolts to the rack. I have to give what you explained a try because I don't want to take off my extender.

    • It's always fun to rig up your own custom stuff then paying a bunch of money for things that may not work as well.  Looks like it should do the trick for you!  🙂
    • Dude, do you know how to use the emoticons?  It's always good to use one of these when making a Joke!  🙂 😀 😅 😂  😉
    • All deer in SE MN need to be wiped out.  90% herd reduction isn't going to stop the disease.  It is wreckless and stupid to do any less.  The whole state herd is going to go in the toilet if the SE guys don't get on the triggers and get their situation under control.  This talk of us vs the deer farms is a stupid smokescreen designed to try to take the focus off private land owners that don't want to cooperate with the mitigation plan.       Anything less will set the stage for CWD to roll hard to the north and get into the big woods where there will be zero chance of ever finding every deer.   
    • Gettin er done.    I have to take the "T" that the transducer pipe goes through to work so I can open the ID so the pipe can slide freely. 
    • I have a couple Garmin units for my boat. I'm going to also use one for ice fishing. Got it powered up and started playing with the colors schemes I'd like to use. The only one I like so far is with a blue background. But what I found that I like better is the black background the humminbird uses. Maybe Garmin could do an update to add a black mode. Lol. 
    • How do you keep those solid whole covers from freezing over the hole?
    • The ant moat idea seems interesting.  Go to a second had store or a Goodwill type of place and see if you can find a Bundt pan.  Use that and see how things work out.  
    • Could you be a little more specific on this cocktail timing deal? Size matters! 😏  
    • I have been doing whole prime rib on a weber grill since I was 20 years old and they cost 2.99 lb at the long ago defunct Country Club Market in St. Paul. I put the coals on each side for indirect heat and add salt and pepper and garlic. For the garlic I put the fat side up and take a knife and put holes into the fat down to meat. In each hole I put a garlic clove. I don't add any pellets or wood chips for smoke. I just want to taste that beef cooked in owns fat with a few spices but go ahead and add some smoke to it if that is what you want.
    • The storm last weekend  has moved the birds into the heavy duty winter cover. We had pretty good hunting in the cattails the last couple of days. Perfect weather helped.
