Custom Concrete Placing Bucket


Our customer had 4 foot wide pouring beds running side by side with a walk way on the either side.  Their placing crew had to stand in the form and step over the re-enforcing steel during the placing operation, risking tripping acidents.  Working with our customer we provided a bucket with universal joints in the gate opening handle. This allowed the clam gate to span the pouring bed, more efficiently spreading the concrete and the placing crew was now able to walk on the walkway instead of on the steel inside the form as they placed the concrete.  The result was a:

4 meter Square Concrete Bucket




Square Concrete Bucket

with universal joint

  • heavy duty construction
  • square construction to increase the capacity without increasing the height
  • extra large, re-enforced linkage gate for fast unloading and spreading the concrete in the form
  • universal joint allows 90 degree rotation of the handle
  • locking handle with spring return
  • low profile lifting bale
