New Roll-Out Bucket Helps Operators Reach New Heights
MOLINE, Ill. (Dec. 21, 2017) - John Deere continues to grow its ever-expanding lineup of Worksite Pro attachments with the introduction of its new roll-out bucket offerings. The RB72, RB84 and RB96 models are designed to best match the attachment to the machine. Optimized for G-Series Compact Track Loaders and K-Series Compact Wheel Loaders (RB84 and RB96 only), these buckets provide an additional 34 inches of dump reach when fully extended.
"From loading tall Total Mixed Ration mixers in ag applications or elevated truck beds, our new roll-out buckets allow customers to lift higher and get more done in a workday," said Jessica Hill, program manager, global attachments at John Deere. "Our unique hydraulic design is ideal for customers loading light materials when a machine's lift height is limited."
The buckets utilize the compact wheel loader or compact track loader's auxiliary hydraulics to roll out and dump material in order to achieve a significantly higher dump height. Rather than requiring the machine hinge pin to be raised higher than the hopper for dumping, the roll-out bucket pivots near its cutting edge for additional dump height. One hundred fourteen degrees of roll-out provides for excellent material spillage control.
For added durability, the buckets incorporate high-strength, large-diameter pivot pins. To further enhance ease of use, the universal, self-cleaning Quik-Tatch™ easy-attachment system allows operators to switch from one type of attachment to another within seconds. Three bucket widths are available: the 72-inch (1,829 mm) RB72, 84-inch (2,134 mm) RB84 and 96-inch (2,489 mm) RB96.
The new roll-out bucket attachments are backed by John Deere parts, service and warranty coverage. To learn more, visit www.JohnDeere.com or contact your local John Deere dealer.
