– The Utility Bucket is a modification of the standard Digging Bucket – it was initially created to help protect utility workers when digging near utilities as it deflects cables away from the bucket.
– The unique Blade System is an innovative design by NBSJ. It has been manufactured as a Bolt on Edge option to replace Teeth or alternative Blade Options. As well as the improved safety for utility works, the rounded, cast steel blade locks the side plates and lip plate in place, to increase the structural integrity of your bucket. It is also heat treated to 550 HB to further maximise the wear strength for continuous digging in harsh conditions.
Micro Trenching Bucket
– Also known as a Deep Dig or Fibre Optic Bucket, the Micro Trenching Bucket is a much narrower bucket than any other. It is designed for digging trenches of only a few inches wide and can usually be manufactured for a digging depth of around 15″ to 27″ deep.
– This bucket was initially designed for digging narrow trenches for the installation of Fibre Optic Cables but is now frequently used for many other applications such as: laying standard cables, pipes and irrigation.
– The main benefit of these narrower trenches is the time spent on digging, backfilling and repairing surfaces. The Micro Trenching Bucket dramatically reduces the amount of time taken to dig out the initial trench but also the amount of time spent backfilling the area you have dug out. As well as this, a large amount of money can be saved on materials usually required to repair the surface to it’s initial condition, such as concreting a sidewalk.
