Side discharge bucketsCat Side Discharge Buckets—designed for use with skid steer loaders, multi-terrain loaders, compact track loaders, and compact wheel loaders—collect and transport loose materials such as sawdust, sand, mulch, and topsoil and then discharge these materials via a belt-type conveyor from adjustable openings (doors) on either side of the bucket. A rotating agitator works to keep material flowing to the conveyor. Adjusting conveyor speed and door openings controls the volume of material discharged and the area covered.
