Dump trucks have a large dump body, which makes it ideal for material removal on roadways and construction sites. The side dump has a cushioned cylinder that smoothly rotates as it dampens the movement at both ends of the stroke. The auto-lock protects the non-pivot end of the bucket from side pivoting during dumping and filling, making it ideal for regular trash collection.
How to Operate a Side Dump Bucket
To operate, the user first engages the hydraulic lock valve to prevent the bucket from free falling when dumping. Then, the user tilts the bucket to the desired dumping position using the tilt cylinder. Finally, the user engages the mechanical lock to secure the bucket in place. Our side dump bucket and skid steer side dump bucket is a versatile tool that can be used in a variety of applications. With its ability to dump to the side, it is perfect for use in congested work sites and hard-to-maneuver work areas. Additionally, the bucket can be used as a conventional bucket in regular applications.
Within each machine category, you can find bucket attachments for all types of jobs.
General purpose: Rectangular buckets with lids are great for carrying, dumping, loading, and grading materials. Bags that are capable of retaining a wide range of weights are known as general-purpose buckets.
Light duty: Light-duty buckets are the best choice for moving large quantities of low-density materials. These attachments have significantly higher capacity than typical general-purpose buckets, and they’re ideal for moving mulch, snow, and other similar things.
Heavy duty: These buckets are constructed of a hardy design that can easily manage high-density loads, such as boulders and hefty blocks. This bucket sort is also perfect for leveling solid stuff like stone and gravel. Heavy-duty buckets are frequently utilized in building, roadwork, and industrial jobs.
Side dump: A side dump bucket isn’t available on every machine, but it’s a fantastic add-on for skid steers and other loaders. In contrast to a traditional bucket, which has two sides, this style features a single end that can be pivoted to unload material in one motion.
Multipurpose: Buckets that are versatile in nature may be used for a variety of purposes. While these buckets have the same specifications as general-purpose buckets, they’re built differently; the bucket’s back detaches from the bottom and sides, allowing it to perform like a grapple.
Rock: A rock bucket has the best design for efficiency when you’re dealing with silt and rocky debris. While these buckets lack the high volume of other bucket designs, they do have tines on the end.
Grapple: Bags of mulch, dirt, or gravel are common examples of bulky or unwieldy materials. A grapple bucket is the best option for these applications. These buckets feature a claw on top that can wrap around objects to keep them secure as you transport them.
