As the name suggests, a 4 in 1 bucket enables you to perform 4 different functions which Digga reference as standard bucket operation, grappling, levelling and dozing.
A 4 in 1 bucket adds great value to the users business and machinery over a standard bucket:
- Standard bucket operation
When the bucket is fully closed the Digga 4 in 1 bucket can be used as a general purpose bucket for moving dirt and material etc.
Digga tip: If you are dumping into a truck you can dump at a greater height than a standard bucket by opening the floor to release the material.
- Grapple operation
With the bucket above an object, open the floor sufficiently and lower the bucket down so that the object is between the jaws. When you close the floor, the object will become clamped between jaws so you can lift and move.
Digga tip: Always use the side jaws to pick up objects. Do not use the floor to pick up or pull objects as this will cause damage to the floor/ bucket and you may lose your warranty.
In the operator’s manual this is referred to as ‘back dragging’. The user drags and levels dirt or material with the floor fully open and the back edge of the bucket on the ground to level out.
- DozingWith the floor of the bucket open, tilt the bulldozer weldment forward so that the front cutting edge penetrates the desired depth into the soil or materials to push and move the ground.
Digga’s extensive range of 4 in 1 buckets are suitable for mini loaders, skid steers and tractors. The durable, strong and 100% Australian made Digga 4 in 1 bucket features a ‘wear plate standard’ hardened steel floor and comes complete with a thick, heavy duty, fully welded grill to provide clear vision of bucket edges. With cutting widths from 880mm to 2200mm, the Digga 4 in 1 bucket is available for mini loaders, skid steers and tractors.
All models in the range are available with optional reversible bolt on cutting blades. The blades are sectioned into 3 and available for fixture on to all 3 edges of the bucket. As the cutting edges of your bucket will naturally wear faster, why replace the whole blade when you can just replace the worn sections?
With the optional Digga reversible cutting blades for your 4 in 1, you can replace wear parts section by section saving you time and money.
See the diagram below which highlights the three different edges and how the blades are sectioned into 3 so you can replace and rotate the blades depending on your usage.
