Increase Productivity and Fuel Efficiency
Performance Series Buckets are designed for superior performance in a variety of materials. They are engineered to dig into piles quickly and load efficiently. Fill factors are up to 115% so you can get your job done and move on to other tasks. Fast load cycles and fewer trips mean less wear and tear on your machine and keep you working.
The buckets below are part of the Performance Series line. They come in different capacities and widths to fit your loading and carrying needs.
Designed for use in bank or face loading of limestone and other unprocessed rock. Application also includes truck and hopper loading for a wide range of quarry materials. GET includes spade nose cutting edge with adapters, half arrow segments, bottom wear plates, boxed wings and side bar protectors.
Heavy Duty Rock Buckets
Designed for use in applications like face loading tightly compacted pit materials or handling materials of moderate abrasion and high impacts. GET are similar to the rock bucket with the additions of cutting edge shrouds and Mechanically Attached Wear Plate system (MAWPs) on wings and underneath the bucket. Base edge end protection, ski plates, additional side wear plates and an extra set of side bar protectors are also included.
Iron Ore Buckets
Designed for use in extremely aggressive applications like face loading. They are built for high abrasion and moderate impact. GET are the same as Heavy Duty Rock buckets, except smaller in bucket capacity to accommodate for the higher density.
Designed for use in applications with light density and non-abrasive materials. GET includes a straight base edge with adapters and half arrow segments.
Ground Engaging Tools
Protect expensive components. Reduce your operating costs. Get the most out of your machine’s performance. Choose from a variety of performance-built GET like these to meet your application requirements.
Please check out our Parts Catalog for more GET options.

Efficient loading/hauling system starts with a perfect match.Learn More
The standard 994K is sized to load the 136 tonnes (150 ton) 785 in four passes. The 994K standard lift loads the 177 tonnes (195 ton) 789 in five passes, and loads the 227 tonnes (240 ton) 793 in six passes.
For full truck payloads with minimum loading time, an efficient loading/hauling system starts with a perfect match. Cat wheel loaders are matched with Cat mining trucks to maximize volume of material moved at the lowest operating cost per ton.
Selection of the right bucket depends on penetration requirements, material densities, abrasion, and the loading target. Bucket sizes are matched to truck bed capacities and material densities for optimum loading efficiency and greater productivity.
