Skid Steer Buckets
A good skid steer bucket is the life blood of any operation. This attachment goes hand and hand with the skid steer. Having a bucket you can rely on for years is crucial for many construction, farming, municipal,
and landscaping companies. All buckets listed below are made in the USA with USA steel. All units are highly engineered, field tested, and come with a 1-year warranty.
How to choose the right skid steer bucket
When determining the best skid steer bucket for your machine there are some things you need to consider:
Know your skid steer model, horsepower, operating load, and tipping capacity: There should be a “Boiler plate” on your loader with that information. If you can’t find it, please call us and we’ll look it up for you. We’re always happy to help you.
Know the width of your machine over the tires: This is the entire width of your unit including the tires or track, this will help you to determine how wide the bucket should be to cover your tracks, and is usually measured in inches
Application: What are your intentions for use? Are you hauling mulch? 18-20 lbs per cubic ft or wet sand? 126 lbs. per cu ft. Are you back dragging, excavating, or pushing snow? Farming? What is the typical terrain? Rocky? Hilly? Sandy?
A low profile bucket allows the operator more vision, and an extended lip bucket allows the operator to see the leading edge when operating. A Blue Diamond Stump Bucket will allow you to not only dig out roots but you’ll be able to trench as well.
