Pro Tips – Which Bucket Style is Right for You?

In the agriculture industry, elevator buckets can vary widely in terms of size and material, but they tend to come down to just a few styles or shapes. Anyone moving grain or other agricultural products are likely familiar with “CC” and calumet style buckets. But where do these styles come from?

In today’s Pro Tips, Bo Fisher and Dean Wedekind with Maxi-Lift share a quick history lesson on the origin of these two bucket styles. They discuss:

  • Where the “CC” and calumet style buckets got their start.
  • Why Maxi-Lift uses these styles for their plastic buckets.
  • Why plastic buckets began to replace traditional steel.
  • Whether or not the two styles may be used interchangeably.
