Sold a machine and the guy wanted my 79" cat light material bucket so I let it go. Now I want to get another large bucket but I don't want to pay for the cat name. I don't want to get something that won't hold up either. So who gives the best value in buckets?

Are you thinking regular buckets? I like the extended lip Case buckets now. I did have a Bobcat bucket long time ago and it was great. Always thought the Virnig buckets were nice too.

The bucket I sold was a light material bucket with a 1 yd capacity. It worked great on the 440 w/ VTS so I would like something similar. It was heavy enough to do digging and could move material quickly. I have a 77 or so case bucket but it won't hold the volume that I want.

I have a 63" Virnig bucket on my machine and it holds more than most 66-68" buckets.

I like Alitec's bucket. A guy here has one on his 70XT with VTS. I used that bucket while trying out the VTS before I bought mine. I really liked that bucket very stout long lipped so you see the cutting edge easily.

Bobcats are good but high. I have a 80 inch low profile smooth, and a 84 inch CI tooth. The CI buckets hold alot of material.

Anyone here want to get rid of a 82 or 84 inch bucket? I am in charge of buying one for the 277C.
I can trade a 78 inch Cat bucket.

I've got a 80" extended lip Case bucket with a Rezloh edge that I'm looking to get rid of, it was on a 90XT.
