John Deere has expanded its lineup of Worksite Pro™ attachments with new grading-heel buckets. The buckets are designed for the Small-Frame G-Series skid steers (312GR, 314G, 316GR, 318G) and the 317G compact track loader.
The grading-heel buckets have a squared-off heel for back-dragging applications. The bottoms of the buckets are smooth and have no lifts or edges. This allows them to create a flat surface without any issues. The buckets can take on a wide range of jobs, including the installation of new landscape for sodding, irrigation and drainage. They also come in two sizes – 60-inch and 66-inch – for customers’ specific needs.
"We're seeing construction spaces getting tighter, especially in the residential building industry, and customers are seeing the value of operating smaller machines in these areas," said Gregg Zupancic, product marketing manager of John Deere Construction & Forestry. "Add an attachment like the new grading-heel bucket, and contractors can work comfortably and efficiently in tight quarters without sacrificing productivity."
The Worksite Pro attachments are designed to enhance the performance of skid steer models. All of the skid steers from John Deere have the universal, self-cleaning Quik-Tatch™ system that makes for quick removal and attachment. The new products are also backed by John Deere’s warranty.
