Mini Skid Steer Buckets
A mini skid steer bucket is often the first attachment a new mini skid steer owner will purchase. The different sizes, profiles, edges and capacities can make it a tough choice. Regardless of which bucket you purchase, you should ensure that it will last the life of your mini skid steer.
Mini skid steer buckets can be designed for general purpose use, or can be for more specific use, like a rock bucket, or a snow bucket. Take a few of these for example...
Mini Skid Steer Low Profile Bucket
A low profile bucket is designed to be longer on the bottom, but shorter in height. The result is a bucket that works well for grading a smoothing out surface, but may not be the best option for digging.
Mini Skid Steer Rock Bucket
A rock bucket for your mini skid steer will be designed to move and lift rock piles while not letting dirt and other small debris into the bucket.
It does this by being built without a solid floor. Instead it uses rods spaced evenly apart to allow the bucket to carry rocks but leave dirt behind.
Mini Skid Steer Snow Buckets
Snow buckets for your mini skid steer are perfect for clearing snow and other light material. It’s built to have a large heaped capacity to move more volume. As a rule of thumb, snow weighs less than gravel and earth, and so a larger bucket can be accommodated.
Consider what you need for a cutting edge on your mini skid steer bucket. A welded on cutting edge is generally the cheapest option, but makes for more difficult replacement down the road. Bolt on cutting edges are generally reversible and easy to replace.
A toothed edge is ideal for breaking new ground and digging holes. Other options are available such as poly edges to protect asphalt while you are clearing snow.
Mini Skid Steer Bucket Widths
Mini Skid Steer buckets come in varied sizes from about 32” up to over 50”. You should consider both the lifting capacity of your mini skid steer, the width of your mini skid steer, as well as if you’ll need the bucket to fit through fences for landscaping and so on.
