Four Types of Bucket

Generally there are four types of bucket, General Duty, Heavy Duty, Severe Duty and Extreme Duty. Choose right bucket will optimize production, lowering operating cost significantly. Beside, it will better withstand wear and fatique.

General Duty

1. General Duty (GD)

For digging in low impact, lower abrasion materials such as dirt, loam, and mixed compositions of dirt and fine gravel.

Example: Digging conditions in which General Duty tip life exceeds 800 hours.

Typically larger General Duty Buckets are the most popular sizes, and are used by site developers to mass excavate in low abrasion applications.

– Lighter structures decrease load time and increase the weight that can be lifted.

– Standard size adapters and tips.

– Sidebars are pre-drilled for optional sidecutters and sidebar protectors.

The most popular excavator bucket style. A good “center line” choice, or starting point, when application conditions vary.

Heavy Duty

2. Heavy Duty (HD)

For a wide range of impact and abrasion conditions including mixed dirt, clay and sand & gravel. Example: Digging condi- tions where Penetration Plus tip life ranges from 400 to 800 hours.

– Thicker bottom and side wear plates than General Duty Buckets, increasing bucket wear life.

– Sidebars are pre-drilled for optional sidecutters and sidebar protectors.

Severe Duty

3.Severe Duty (SD)

For higher abrasion conditions such as shot rock and sandstone.

Example: Digging conditions where tip life ranges from 200 to 400 hours with Penetration Plus tips.

– Bottom wear plates up to 50% thicker than Heavy Duty Buckets.

– Side wear plates up to 40% larger than Heavy Duty Buckets for added protection against abrasive and gouging wear.

– Spade edge with adapters are sized to accommodate higher abrasion conditions while maintaining ease of penetration.

– Sidebars are pre-drilled for optional sidebar protectors.

Extreme Duty

4. Extreme Duty (XD)

For very high abrasion conditions including high quartzite granite.

Example: Digging conditions where tip life is less than or equal to 200 hours with Extra Duty tip.

– Corner (or heel) shroud, Base Edge End Protector (BEEPs) , base edge segment , liners

– Side wear plates are larger and Sidebar protection has been added for protection against abrasion and gouging wear.

– Spade edge with adapters are sized to accommodate higher abrasion conditions.
