    Does anyone know of a company that makes heavy duty buckets for Bobcat excavators? I have a new 430 the bucket has cracked twice now, and today the right tooth ripped right off with part of the cutting edge..There buckets are junk. Hasn't been in any rock either, just pulling stumps. thanks

    i would reccommend work brau buckets... they will work with you to build the bucket you want just not give you what they have...

    I run Werk Brau as well. They are good HD buckets.

    Any builder builds a HD bucket compared to Bobcat's, even Cat's buckets are built better.

    I've seen Cat skid steer buckets with 2000 hours on them, still original cutting edge, straight and no bent sides.
