Muck it Bucket
Our first goal was to determine the proper lower radius of the bucket. The bucket radius needed to work for all the different kiln diameters in the marketplace. After settling that issue we concentrated of the lead edge radius, which we found to be as important as the lower radius. A flat leading edge required the loader operator to accelerate into the pile of debris. This resulted in a problem for the operator because the impact created fatigue, along with shoulder and hand injuries. The other drawback was that it was hard on the machine. Consequently we determined the leading edge must be radiused and made of T-1 steel. We also included the option of installing bucket teeth on the leading edge. The final phase was to come up with a standard mounting bracket that would be able to mount the bucket onto any skid steer loader. The ending result was a smooth operating bucket that could slice through the debris and get the material out of the kiln to free up the tear out machine to continue its job of taking down the brick or coating.

1. Increase the speed of refractory removal
2. Less wear and tear on operator and machine
3. Bucket will last many years
4. Remove brick and coating easily from your kiln!
5. Custom made for removing rubble in round vessels
6. Radiused bottom allows full surface contact
7. Radiused front edge helps to penetrate rubble and decreases machine / operator impact
8. The most efficient and safest method for removing debris
9. Bucket can be made for installation on most loaders
