Selecting The Right Bucket

Overview

Low profile buckets have a longer bottom than construction/industrial buckets. They offer excellent cutting edge visibility and good bucket breakout force. Low profile buckets are ideal for grading and leveling applications as well as carrying, loading and other material handling. Available grapple attachment makes easy work of hard-to-handle materials.

Bucket Backs Comparison

The back of a bucket is subjected to extreme force as you push into a pile, lift materials and back drag. Which buckets have the most reinforcement in the right places? Compare them in this video.

Bucket Bottoms Comparison

If a bucket bottom isn't built well, the cutting edge will flex or even permanently bow. You need a strong bucket bottom to cut a grade, flatten your work area or scrape material off hard surfaces. See the strong Bobcat bucket bottom and its unique waffle-plate design.

Customization Comparison

With Bobcat low profile and construction/industrial buckets, you can easily add custom options like teeth and grapples using simple tools. With other buckets, you must drill holes or permanently weld those options. Watch how Bobcat offers fast, convenient customization.

Bucket Strength

Your bucket must withstand severe applications. In this test, watch how different buckets react to the forces typically placed upon them by a loader. See which bucket has the least deflection and the most strength.

Options & Accessories

With Bobcat low profile and construction/industrial buckets, you can easily add custom options using simple tools. With other buckets, you must drill holes or permanently weld those options. Watch the customization comparison video to learn more.

Most Bobcat buckets are pre-drilled to accept the following accessories:

  • Bucket Bite® Tooth Bar: Quickly convert your smooth-lip bucket into a toothed bucket
  • Bolt-on teeth with replaceable points: Several styles available to chew through tough digging conditions
  • Bolt-on cutting edge: Provide longer life to your loader’s bucket
  • Bolt-on corner cutting edge: Protect the corners of your bucket with these beveled cutting edges
  • Utility grapple: Quickly converts your bucket into a grapple for handling loose materials on the farm or construction site
  • Bucket spill guard: Bolts onto the top of your bucket to reduce material boiling or falling over the back of the bucket

Bobcat Buckets Offer Many Choices:

Construction/Industrial (C/I) Bucket

Construction/Industrial (C/I) Bucket

The standard bucket on most Bobcat loaders. This durable bucket provides excellent breakout force and has good cutting edge visibility. Shorter bottom and less capacity than low profile bucket.

Dirt Buckets

Dirt Buckets

The standard bucket on smaller Bobcat loaders. Provides excellent breakout force and fair visibility. Similar to the general purpose bucket, but with a shorter bottom.

General Purpose Buckets

General Purpose Buckets

Similar in design to a dirt bucket, but with a longer bottom to provide good cutting edge visibility and increased capacity. The standard bucket for Toolcat™ machines and a good choice for low-hour users on some larger loaders.

Heavy-Duty and Severe-Duty C/I Bucket

Heavy-Duty and Severe-Duty C/I Buckets

Designed for larger Bobcat loaders and compact track loaders, these buckets feature a higher back and longer bottom than standard C/I buckets and have additional strength in key areas.

Fertilizer Bucket

Fertilizer Bucket

Fertilizer buckets have large capacities and more roll-back range. The greater roll-back allows granular materials to be easily held in the bucket by minimizing spillage over the front edge. Applications include fertilizer and grain handling.

Snow/Light Material Bucket

Snow/Light Material Bucket

These are large capacity buckets for loading and handling various light materials such as snow and mulch. They have high backs to help with pushing snow, and straight sides to penetrate snow and mulch piles.
