Cat® General Purpose Performance Series Buckets provide good all-around performance for stockpiling, re-handling, excavating and bank loading. As the name suggests, these buckets work well in loading from stockpiles as well as bank loading. Performance Series Buckets utilize a system-based approach to balance bucket shape against the machine's linkage, weight, lift and tilt capacities. The result is a bucket optimized for performance and productivity, and intended for use in production applications. The benefits of this design bring higher fill factors and material retention.
