In an effort to deliver buckets that are easier to clean-out and have increased durability, Bobcat has introduced a few new models designed around grading and trenching.
According to a story on equipmentworld.com, these new buckets are compatible with the standard clamp as well as the optional Pro Clamp System. The trenching buckets are available in 12-, 16-, 18, 20-, 24-, 30- and 36-inch widths, while the grading buckets are available in 36-, 48- and 60-inch widths.

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.”
