John Deere has introduced a new bucket for skid steers (SSLs) and compact track loaders (CTLs) featuring a high-back, high-capacity design.
Deere says the new Light Material High-Capacity Bucket (LM90) is designed “to take advantage of the improved performance capabilities and boom design” of its G-Series SSLs and CTLs and can handle light materials such as snow and mulch in large quantities.
The company says the buckets “significantly” reduce cycle times versus smaller buckets. Deere product marketing manager Gregg Zupancic says the buckets make SSLs and CTLs “capable of working just as hard as a larger piece of equipment.”
As the model number suggests, the LM90 is a 90-inch bucket. It has a heaped capacity of 54 cubic feet and Deere says it can carry more material per load than its previous buckets.
Integrated into the LM90’s high back is a step for easy entry and exit from the machine. Deere says the bucket attaches and detaches to its SSLs and CTLs in seconds through its Quik-Tatch system.
