The Caterpillar Performance Series flat-floor bucket is designed specifically for Cat M and K Series small wheel loaders.
The new flat-floor buckets are general-purpose buckets that incorporate a specially designed long floor and a rear cutting edge for light grading or back-dragging. The buckets also feature curved side bars to promote an aggressive cut, as well as better rollover, and also incorporate a wide-throat design for easier loading and increased fill factors, Cat says. The long-floor models also work well with laser control during forward grading, and the rear cutting edge is designed to leave a quality finish when back-dragging. The buckets are available in rated capacities from 3.0 to 3.8 cubic yards and with a choice of interfaces—pin-on, Fusion coupler, or ISO.
