Buckets may be the most common attachment for compact equipment like skid steers and CTLs, but as they say, variety is the spice of life. There are a large assortment of skid steer bucket types available, and rather than just sticking with the factory default, it’s worth looking through them to find the one that’s perfect for your project.
A recent article by compactequip.com provided an in-depth look at bucket types, giving compact equipment users the insight needed in order to find the perfect fit for any type of work. As Christopher Girodat, marketing manager for Bobcat Co. says, “When looking for a loader bucket there are some things to consider to make sure the bucket is a good fit.”

If the buckets for your skid steers, compact track loaders, or compact wheel loaders are just a little too small, John Deere might have something you’ll be interested in.
According to equipmentworld.com, three new roll-out buckets have been added to John Deere’s Worksite Pro attachment lineup. These new, larger buckets (model numbers RB72, RB84 and RB96) provide customers with several advantages, including:
- An additional 34 inches of dump reach
- A pivot near the cutting edge for the additional height
- Hydraulics designed for higher lift to reach elevated truck beds
- 114 degrees of roll-out
- John Deere’s Quik-Tatch system, which allows customers to add or remove the buckets in seconds
The new buckets are available in widths of 72, 84, and 96 inches. To read the full story, head to equpmentworld.com or johndeere.com.
