Here are two reasons why so many farmers use 4-in-1 buckets.
These buckets can save them a lot of money
One of the many expenses that a typical farmer incurs is purchasing and maintaining all of the equipment they need to run their farm. Farmers who are trying to lower this particular expense often end up buying 4-in-1 buckets. This is because this piece of equipment can eliminate the need for them to buy several other expensive pieces of machinery. When attached to a farmer's tractor, this bucket can, for example, be used to load and transport materials (like an excavator), to doze (like a bulldozer), to grade land (like a grader) and to grapple (like a wheel loader with a grapple).
In comparison to the total cost of purchasing all of these individual pieces of machinery, the price of a 4-in-1 bucket is very modest. Furthermore, making this purchasing decision could also save a farmer a lot, in regards to machinery maintenance costs, as whilst this bucket and the tractor it's attached to will require maintenance, the farmer would save themselves the costs that would come with maintaining the engines, tyres and other essential components of the above-mentioned pieces of machinery.
These buckets can save space
Another reason why lots of farmers buy 4-in-1 buckets is due to how much space this type of item can save them. As explained above, this bucket can serve as an excellent replacement for several different forms of machinery. Each of these other machines would need to be stored on a farmer's land (ideally, indoors, to protect the machinery from the elements) which means that any farmer who uses them would then have to sacrifice a substantial amount of their farm to use as a storage area for this equipment.
This might result in them not having as much storage space as they would like for other essential farming supplies, such as their bags of cattle feed or fertiliser. Additionally, they may need to spend time and money building a large storage shed for these machines, if they need to keep them indoors.
Conversely, in comparison to the total amount of ground space that these machines would take up, a 4-in-bucket would consume far less space. Because of this, a farmer who buys this equipment can usually store it in their existing shed where they keep their tractor, without having to worry about this bucket taking up tons of space that they need to use for their other farming supplies.
