The Best Stump Bucket Attachment
The Blue Diamond Stump Bucket attachment remains one of our top sellers for a number of reasons. With so many stump buckets available with different levels of quality, it’s important to know what to look for! Read on to find out what makes our stump bucket the preferred model!
Designed for Efficiency
We made sure to design a stump bucket that would be the most efficient design for high quality work. Our design includes a curved narrow floor and a longer design than most other stump bucket attachments.
Curved Bottom to use the Machine’s Weight
First up is the curved bottom. This design creates a fulcrum point that that allows you to use the weight of your machine instead of relying on just lift capacity. Using this crowbar effect, you can substantially increase what you can break out of the ground!
Long Design for Greater Reach and Leverage
Secondly, take a look at the length. The Blue Diamond stump bucket is one of the longest stump buckets on the market, again creating more leverage. This length also allows for greater reach, which is invaluable when getting to the center of large stumps or when digging ditches.
Narrow Floor for Easier Digging
Thirdly is the narrow floor on the bucket. Many stump buckets have a floor that widens as it goes back creating a wedge effect. This design tends to make it difficult to penetrate deep into the ground. Our bucket only widens by 2” from front to back. We achieved a wider top by leaning our sides outward. This all has created a bucket that penetrates even very hard ground with ease.
Curved Teeth to Tear Through Roots
Our stump bucket also includes backward curved teeth cut into both sides of the bucket. These teeth provide extra cutting ability to help tear through roots when removing stubborn stumps.
Reinforced Areas that see the Most Abuse
We constructed our stump bucket with 1/2-inch steel. With double layers in stressful areas, this stump bucket can work through the toughest jobs. The Blue Diamond stump bucket also includes a 1-inch by 8-inch cutting edge for added strength. Our gusseted quick attach means you can pry up tough stumps with confidence.
The Blue Diamond Severe Duty Stump Bucket remains one of the industry’s heaviest built stump bucket! Using 4-inch square tubing, a formed bottom versus welded, and the popular ESCO Super V teeth, this brutal bucket holds a 0% breakage rate!
This stump bucket is like having a large crowbar on the front of your skid steer! Pry up sidewalks, driveways, fence posts, rocks, or dig stumps and ditches – your imagination is the limit!
