    Not bad! Looks like it has a little foot pump system to lift them a bit before breaking them over. Kind of like a quality barrel dolly...fer buckets.

    Not exactly sure how this works. There's really no bottom support.

    Looks like the lower red clamp slides up and down inside that track? To give you the option of delivering just the bottom bucket? I wonder what it looks like when it's loaded with just a single bucket.

    On closer inspection I am now wondering if that foot pedal actually clamps the bottom bucket once it is in place. And yes they do slide into the bucket tracks below the lid but don't think it would just deliver the bottom bucket. Why and how it's off the ground I'm not sure (or it's an optical illusion that it's off the ground) unless the foot pedal not only clamps but lifts the stack.

    With a bit of rabbit hole diving I found this on Amazon: Pictures aren't much better but does look like the foot pedal lifts and Possibly clamps?

    Nothing on Fetch - material handling, handtruck, 5gal pail...You are much better at these searches.

    But did find this link, and may even be qualified...just not a young buck like they probably want.
