Bobcat grading and trenching buckets promise maximum digging capabilities
By Jillian MorganConstruction
Bobcat Company has expanded on its current attachment line-up with redesigned trenching buckets and all-new grading buckets for its E26 through E85 compact excavators. The new grading buckets – available in 36-, 48- and 60-in. widths – share the same profile as Bobcat’s trenching buckets and will not have internal center gussets. The design gives a larger capacity than the current grading buckets and allows for more material to be moved in one cycle of the excavator work group. Grading buckets are also equipped with waffle plates. Trenching buckets – available in 12-, 16-, 18-, 20-, 24-, 30- and 36-in. widths – feature a replaceable cutting edge. A toothed version is also available which uses the same teeth as the previous bucket model. A scalloped cast side cutter has been added. Both trenching and grading buckets will fit the standard clamp and the optional Pro ClampTM System.
