The material bucket is an attachment that is designed to handle large quantities of light, loose material. Generally, they have a high capacity for handling large loads of material, and they usually have high sides to make it easier for the bucket to cut into large piles of the material. A material bucket will usually also have a high back so it can be used to push and pile the material up.

What makes the material bucket such a great skid steer attachment is that it can be applied to a wide range of material moving jobs. In some cases, you might be able to find a specialized bucket that performs better for some of the individual tasks, but the material bucket is sort of like the jack-of-all-trades for moving light material. This makes it particularly good for skid steer owners that have a wide range of material moving needs, but don’t have the money or storage space for multiple buckets.

So, what types of material can you move with a skid steer material bucket? Just about anything that is light and loose. It can be good for moving rocks and gravel. The material bucket can also be good for wood chips and mulch. If you need to move snow, the material bucket is ideal for that as well. You can also use the material bucket for moving topsoil, sand, grain, livestock feed and fertilizer. As a further point, the high back means that it can be good for more than just loading up and moving material from one place to another. You can also use it to push material into a pile.

It is important to recognize that there are some differences between material buckets. There can be some slight variations in design, different capacities and there can be differences in the dimensions as well. When shopping for a material bucket for a skid steer loader, you need to consider your needs and the capabilities of your machine.
