General Purpose Buckets

General Purpose buckets cover a range of applications, such as digging dry soil.

All general purpose buckets have been designed to meet the high strength and safety requirements of today’s environment. There is a large variety of buckets available to cover a wide range of applications and to enable a more compatible loader/tractor combination, ensuring you get the most from your loader.

All buckets are constructed from high tensile steel (570mpa) which is laser cut for accuracy and press formed to ensure superior strength.

When attached to a Challenge front end loader, the bucket profile has been designed to ensure there is no rollback, a condition whereby material spills or falls over the rear of the bucket as it is filled. All earthmoving buckets enable maximum fill with minimum effort, ensuring an efficient loading cycle.

The lower back portion of the bucket has a double plate arrangement that forms an enclosed 'box' section running the full width of the bucket, giving the bucket exceptional torsional strength.

Buckets have a high quality roll formed cutting edge for excellent durability as well as wear plates on the bottom face of the bucket.

Heavy section pipe gives a clean smooth face to the top of the bucket.

The buckets' cut ends have been pressed to give strength along the edge and sides of the bucket.

The attachment lugs on the rear of the bucket have plates that distribute the load to the strengthened sections of the bucket, directly behind the ‘box’ section and to the formed edge towards the top of the bucket. This eliminates deformation in the back of the bucket during loading cycles.

Most general purpose buckets can be fitted with ground-engaging teeth if required.
