Bucket, General Purpose (Loaders)

Bobcat Mini track loader with a general purpose bucket carries rock to create a foundation.

General purpose buckets are ideal for light-duty grading and leveling applications as well as material handling. These buckets have a longer bottom than the dirt style. They offer good bucket breakout force, and the long bottom improves cutting edge visibility and capacity.

Top Tasks

  • Light-duty grading and leveling
  • Material handling


  • Skid bar design: Provides wear protection to bottom of bucket; backs up the cutting edge and adds strength to the bottom of the bucket
  • Low back and longer bottom: Improve cutting edge visibility and increase capacity.


Low Profile Bucket

Bottom of the Bobcat low profile bucket.

Similar in design to a C/I bucket, but with slightly less breakout force. Has a longer bottom to provide excellent cutting edge visibility and increased capacity. This is the most popular Bobcat bucket

Dirt Bucket

Bobcat T630 compact track loader moves material with a dirt bucket.

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.

Heavy-Duty and Severe-Duty C/I Bucket

A heavy duty bucket attachment is used to lift dirt by a foundation wall.

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

Bobcat skid-steer loader uses a bucket to dump feed into a grain trailer.

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

Bobcat snow bucket is used to pile up a snow in a parking lot.

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.

Construction/Industrial Bucket

Ideal for everything from tough digging to material handling. Construction and Industrial buckets offer fair cutting edge visibility and excellent bucket breakout force for better digging and easier bucket filling. Bolt-on grapple attachment adds to versatility.
