General Purpose Buckets

Challenge general purpose bucket design and features

When attached to a front-end loader, the Challenge general purpose bucket 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. This enables maximum fill with minimum effort, ensuring an efficient loading cycle.

  • Constructed from high tensile steel (570mpa) which is laser cut for accuracy and press formed to ensure superior strength.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Optional extras…

Optional ground engaging teeth are available for the Challenge general purpose bucket. This optional extra must be ordered new and is ideally suited for improving digging ability when working with tough soil. Alternatively, keep your bucket in tact when performing a lot of ground engaging work by adding an option replaceable bolt-on cutting edge.
