    7.48 gallons in a cubic foot, a six foot fel is approx 6' x 2' = 13 cubic feet or 97 gallons of water with all holes plugged.

    55 gal barrel is 7.35 cubic ft, and I bet you could set three 55 gal plastic drums in the fel, strap them in and spill a whole lot less. But that would weight around 1,200 lbs. Better put a forth barrel on the 3 pt hitch for ballast and move 220 gallons at a time.

    Seriously I saw the guys making a plastic barrel filled with concrete, counter weight and I would like one of those, not filled with contrete for my 3pt as a toter.

    According to the Kioti loader brochure, the DK45 uses a KL401 loader with a 72" bucket. The rated capacity, is
    9.18 cubic feet. That should be level struck as the heaped capacity is 15.88 cu. ft.

    If it is not a long distance from the creek to the watering site, have you considered a hydraulic ram pump. I requires no power other than water power to operate and can pump water uphill. There are a number of sites if you can google it and also they are for sale on ebay...
    Just a thought and my worth.

    PS. I was thinking and wife says smoke coming out of my ears....

    Well, there is just about every other attachment for a FEL, why not a "WaterBucket"? Probably needs a lid as well as a flapper valve for filling from a pond and a spigot for emptying.

    OMG, my mind is going a mile a minute! Let's see, it could hinge to the chain hooks on top and latch to the tooth bar and be made from styrafoam to float open and have a rope back to the seat so latch can be opened... and...and...the extreme model will have a hydraulic 3rd function lid actuator...and flexible rubber seals on all sides making it water tight....and the Cowman model will have a roller on the top so it can be a mobile molasses lick....and....
