Woods Construction compact excavator buckets carry the Gannon®, Wain-Roy® and Central Fabricator (CF®) brand names. All buckets are made with high quality US steel, and T1-grade steel is used when needed in high-wear areas of our most rugged attachments. High quality materials and workmanship extend the life of your Woods Construction equipment. Compact excavator buckets fit 1/6 yard (less than 4,500 lb.), 1/8 yard (4,500 to 12,500 lb.) and 1/4 yard (12,500 to 20,000 lb.) class machines.

Tilting Buckets

Tilting Buckets rotate up to a total of 90 degrees, 45 degrees on each side of center, for greater control and flexibility during ditch cleaning, grading, backfilling and loose material loading and unloading applications. The tilting mechanism allows the bucket to rotate at various angles in order to form the surface to the desired shape without repositioning the machine. This is especially beneficial when working along roadways or in tight operating conditions.

 

Jaw Buckets

Jaw Buckets provide the versatility of a trenching bucket and a thumb in one unit without having to weld thumb brackets onto the boom. Jaw Buckets are effective jobsite trenchers and haulers of cumbersome materials. Remove, load, and backfill material with the front jaw in the closed position and then use the hydraulically actuated jaw to pick and place large objects such as bolders, stumps, pipe, logs, concrete slabs and other debris. Jaw Buckets are an effective multi-use tool for construction applications.

CF/Wain-Roy Ripper Buckets

Our Central Fabricators and Wain-Roy ripper buckets are used in a wide variety of severe applications where material is being both ripped and removed. Rip and dig with one attachment to increase performance and efficiency. As the current pass is dug and removed, the next pass is ripped and prepared. Standard applications for ripper buckets would include: Frozen ground, sandstone, limestone, caliche, shale, coral and other severe materials.

 

Gannon/Wain-Roy Severe-Duty Buckets (SD)

Our Gannon and Wain-Roy severe-duty buckets are specially designed to perform in extremely abrasive applications and high impact conditions. SD buckets incorporate high strength materials such as US steel and heavier material thickness for an extended bucket life, structural strength, and extreme durability. SD buckets are also available in high capacity versions.

Heavy-Duty Buckets

Heavy-Duty Buckets are designed to handle clay, gravel, compacted soils and loose rock applications. Each HD bucket is designed to meet or exceed OEM specifications while improving machine effieciency and productivity. They are designed to improve bucket life when used in a more abrasive material application. HD buckets contain additional material to increase bucket durability while maintaining productivity. HD buckets also come in high capacity versions for increased material volume, resulting in improved productivity.
