Rockland Manufacturing has launched a new side dump bucket for loaders working in tight spaces.
With this new bucket, wheel and crawler loader operators can simply pull up beside a truck or trench to dump sideways. That helps when in confined areas, such as highway construction sites, trenches and roadways.
Rockland engineered the bucket for quiet, controlled lateral dumping with a dual-cushioned dump cylinder. When performing conventional unloading tasks or working on rough terrain, the bucket’s hydraulic lockout cylinder prevents unwanted movement while the dump cylinder is not engaged.
The bucket comes standard for left-hand dump, with right-hand dump as an option. It is also available in coupler or pin-on configurations. Its cutting edges are reversible and it has a center-mounted lift hook.
