Cat Side Discharge Buckets are designed for use with skid steer loaders, multi-terrain loaders, compact track loaders and compact wheel loaders. The buckets feature a belt-type conveyor and adjustable openings on either side of the bucket. A rotating agitator aims to keep material flowing. The rubber conveyor belt is powered by two externally mounted, reversible hydraulic motors. The agitator is powered by a third, high-torque hydraulic motor. Agitator paddles are available in sand and sawdust configurations, the sand style featuring a straight design and the sawdust type featuring an aggressive design that uses prongs. The manually adjustable discharge doors are built with thick-plate reinforcing.
