General Purpose Bucket Options

Option 1 : All rounder. The Straight-edge Bucket is an ideal choice for general purpose load and carry applications where aggregates or loose material need to be re-handled. The bucket body is typically constructed from a thicker tensile steel, whilst the cutting edges and wear plates made using Hard steel

Option 2 : Breaker The Heavy Duty Straight-edge Bucket is typically manufactured from thicker steel with a higher tensile strength. The cutting edges and wear plates fabricated from the same steel as used on the All Rounder . The Heavy Duty Bucket is typically used for load and rock carrying applications and for breaking material from banks.

Option 3 : Load & Carry. The Light Material Straight-edge Bucket made with thinner ( but strong) materials is an ideal bucket for most carry and load applications. Offering an increased cubic metre capacity, makes it a great choice for re-handling lighter bulky materials such as wood chips, sawdust, coke and in the winter snow
