What is a Buckrite Powered Drop Barrel?

 The Buckrite is a powered drop barrel for bullriders to perfect their technique and timing on.  I have added some features to the design. 

  • It is powered so you can use it any time without needing help to run it.
  • It comes with brackets to convert to a level or incline stationary barrel.
  • It has steps and a platform for ease getting on and off.
  • The control switch is movable, It has a mount on the barrel for the rider to control, or it can be operated from the ground.
  • Adjustable feet to level on any surface.
  • It is low maintenance.
  • It is compact enough to fit in a pickup 

 My goal was to create a self operating drop barrel based on the proven  Gary Leffew design, also I added some features that riders have asked  for, I also wanted to keep it affordable for the average guy to practice on.


With this in mind I remind people that this is not a toy, it is a serious training aid to help riders improve their technique.
