Welcome to Rock Tools Attachments

Rock Crusher

There once was a time when roads, buildings, bridges, and tunnels were built by hard-skinned men with nothing but the muscles in their arms and the shovels in their hands for work tools. With technological advances replacing manual labor, and new machinery replacing horses, it’s clear to see we’ve come a long way. But that doesn’t mean finding a product that suits your needs best is any easier.

We may have upgraded from a shovel, but construction is getting larger and more complex, therefore choosing a suitable tool or attachment is a hard task to undertake. Finding appropriate crushing buckets and sieving buckets is no less important.

How does a contractor, agricultural professional or a public services worker know which one will be perfect for the task they’re undertaking? Finding the correct crushing bucket or sieving bucket for the job is important. Failure to do so can result in reduced productivity and reduced profit as a result.   

What is a crushing bucket?

Crushing buckets are used in a range of industries for biowaste, mixed materials, rock, concrete, and stone. They are a preferred attachment by many because only one bucket is required for crushing, demolishing, recycling and loading material.

They’re versatile, they cut down on time for transportation and most importantly, they save any individual or business a lot of money in productivity.

How do you know which is the best crushing bucket for your individual needs?

When you’re looking for the best crushing bucket, it pays to be aware of the specifications for each crushing bucket available. While all crushing buckets are designed to take the hard work out of many worksite tasks, they are not all going to suit your machine or your crushing requirements.

Therefore, you should pay attention to the:

  • Excavator class
  • Screening area
  • Struck volume
  • Hydraulic flow (minimum and maximum GPM)
  • Dimensions
  • Weight

But sometimes, quality is also a huge factor. You should only ever purchase your new crushing bucket from a team of experts with many years of experience in the field. Choosing anything less than the best can leave you wide open to problems with manufacturing faults and quality control issues.

What is a sieving bucket?

A sieving bucket enables you to dig and screen, all with the same bucket. They are suitable for both skid steer loaders and excavators and come in a range of weights and sizes to suit. Many are made of various rib gaps and tine widths, and these help individuals to sort material with optimum efficiency, all the while avoiding material sticking to side walls. Many sieving buckets also have interlocking ribs to offer a better level of strength. Whether you’re sieving through topsoil or you’re separating debris and stones, a sieving bucket is a good option for you.

How do you know which is the best sieving bucket for your individual needs?

Firstly, you need to understand how a kitchen sieve works. You wouldn’t use a small tea strainer for two cups of flour, nor would you use a kitchen sieve for straining tea. It’s all about knowing the size you require, and matching it to the task you’re looking to undertake. Paying attention to specifications can also help.

These can often include:

  • Excavator class
  • Tine lengths
  • Rib gaps
  • Screening area
  • Struck volume
  • Hydraulic flow (minimum and maximum GPM)
  • Dimensions
  • Weight

All work together in harmony to ensure the sieving bucket you choose is ultimately what suits your needs best.
