Caterpillar has introduced two wheel loader bucket designs—the dozing bucket and the load-and-carry bucket—for solid waste handling in transfer stations and recycling centers.
Three models of rock buckets have heaped capacities of 4, 4.5 and 6 cubic yards.
The Genesis Demolition Bucket from Genesis Attachments is designed to turn wheel and track loader into long-distance material handlers. Genesis says the bucket allows a machine designed to load 3.5 cubic yards per pass to handle 7.0 cubic yards of material. The bucket design resists twisting — even when handling oversized, uneven loads, says Genesis.
Available from 2- to 12-yard capacities, the Hardrock loader bucket comes with a straight or tooth edge.
