WL Bale/Silage Bucket

Products / Wheel Loader Attachments / Wheel Loader Buckets / WL Bale/Silage Bucket

WBM Bale/Silage Buckets are designed specifically for handling round bales and loading silage in an agricultural feedlot application. Compared to a Corral Bucket, the Bale/Silage Bucket has a larger convex radius on the leading edge and the basket is taller to allow for better round bale handling. This creates approx. 1/4 yd increase in capacity over the Corral Bucket. The tips on the overarm are typically designed with extended length to increase penetration into the round bales and increase capacity in silage loading applications.
