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.

    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
    • Go to Milaca unclaimed Freight and for the pulley 8to 1 lift. Cheap and easy  
    • Had to go back and see if it was you that posted this one: 😀
