Excavator Buckets for Every Application

Rockland excavator bucket types

Heavy-duty, versatile excavator buckets

An excavator bucket is a versatile attachment that fits onto the excavator’s stick using a set of pins or a quick coupler. An excavator bucket might perform common tasks, including digging, ripping, or loading different materials. When selecting the design or style of an excavator bucket, the first thing to consider is the type of material you will be handling.

There are various excavator bucket types to choose from, depending on your application. Heavy-duty bucket excavator attachments are the most popular type because they function well in various soil conditions like gravel, clay, silt, sand, and shale. Severe-duty buckets are best suited for excavator operators handling abrasive materials in severe digging applications such as quarry work. Tilting Buckets offer up to 45° of tilt in either direction, saving operators from having to reposition their machine when performing grading, ditching, or sloping work.

As with any heavy equipment operation, the excavator operator must ensure the selected bucket and prospective load do not exceed the equipment’s operating capacity.

We offer our buckets in standard, heavy-duty bucket, and severe-duty design options. Among the added features on many of our buckets are:

  • Side cutters: The bolt-on blades can increase the bucket’s overall cutting width
  • Base edge: This feature provides heavy-duty support for the entire bucket system
