I am considering puchasing a Johnny Bucket for my new GT5000. It seems like a great tool, especially as I am beginning the process of landscaping my back yard. Much of the landscape will be small rock (up to a couple of inches) and mulch. My question is this.... Will this thing really scoop gravel from a dumped pile (assuming you have adequate traction)? I am somewhat skeptical, but from what I have read on this site, people seem very pleased with them. Any comments from owners would be greatly appreciated. Also, has anyone used a Johnny Bucket much for snow removal? Seems like a good option when there's too much snow for a blade..... Thanks in advance for the input.
