Cat Skeleton Buckets feature heavy steel rods — 1.25 in. in diameter on 3.75 in. centres — to form the floor and back of the bucket. Plates with rectangular openings form the sides of the bucket, and a rectangular frame, fabricated of heavy duty steel and incorporating two steel plate rock dams, form the back of the bucket.
