All Challenge Implements earthmoving 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. Along with many other parts, the buckets are assembled in robotic welding machines to ensure that a consistent high quality weld criteria is maintained.
When attached to the standard level-lift 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 Challenge Implements 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' laser cut ends have been pressed to give strength along the edge and sides of the bucket.
- The mounting 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.
The two Light Material Buckets have the same rated capacity but offer different widths. They have been developed to handle larger volumes of lighter material. They have the same features as the earthmoving bucket with the addition of internal ribs near the mounting lugs for extra strength in the back of the bucket. These buckets cannot have ground engaging teeth fitted.

The Bucket width measurement is the overall outside width of the bucket in millimetres. All bucket specifications are to standards ASAE S301.3 and AS2954.5/ISO 7546.
Depth (L): Horizontal distance in millimetres from tip of cutting edge to rearmost vertical inner face of bucket.
Height (M): Overall vertical height in millimetres from bottom of bucket to top edge of bucket.
Length (N): Horizontal distance in millimetres from the tip of the cutting edge to the bucket pivot point.
