Get Superior Results with Performance Series Flat-Floor Buckets

Caterpillar Attachments recently released Performance Series flat-floor buckets specially designed for Cat® M and K Series small wheel loaders. The new general purpose buckets feature a long floor and rear cutting edge ideal for light grading or back-dragging applications. They provide optimum results while retaining the premium characteristics of the Performance Series.

Performance Series flat-floor buckets incorporate curved sidebars for a more aggressive cut and better rollover. The wide-throat design also allows for easier loading and increased fill factors. Cat Performance Series buckets have an average of 110% higher fill factors compared to other flat-floor buckets of the same capacity. This translates to increased productivity and lower cost per yard.

New structural improvements include reinforced side edges, corner and side edge protectors, and a bolt-on cutting edge or weld-on teeth that significantly extend the life of the bucket’s base surfaces. The integrated spill guard and material deflector plates help prevent spillovers.

The new Performance series flat-floor buckets for small wheel loaders are available in rated capacities from 3.0 – 3.8 cubic yards and three different interfaces: pin-on, Fusion™ coupler, or ISO.
