Deere’s new Light Material High-Capacity buckets for G-Series
By John Deere
May 18, 2017 - Designed to take advantage of the improved performance capabilities and boom design of the G-Series skid steers and compact track loaders (CTLs), John Deere now offers a 90-inch Light Material High-Capacity Bucket (LM90) as part of the ever-expanding lineup of Worksite Pro attachments. It features a high back for maximum capacity to cut through piles of snow, mulch or other light materials in large quantities, significantly reducing cycle times versus smaller size buckets.
“Customer feedback to the new G-Series machines has been extremely positive because they are powerful and highly productive,” said Gregg Zupancic, product marketing manager at John Deere Construction & Forestry. “When equipped with a Light Material High-Capacity bucket, that productivity is magnified, making these machines capable of working just as hard as a larger piece of construction equipment.”
The new 90-inch light material bucket has a heaped capacity of 54 cubic feet and can carry more material per load than previous John Deere offerings. The increased width and high-back design reduces spillage and provides capacity. An integrated step on the back of the bucket is also included for easy entry and exit from the machine.
With the universal, self-cleaning Quik-Tatch easy attachment system found on all John Deere skid steers, CTLs and compact excavators, the machine can easily add and remove the Light Material High-Capacity bucket in seconds. The new attachment series is also backed by John Deere parts, service and warranty coverage.
