John Deere is expanding its lineup of Worksite Pro attachments with the new grading-heel buckets. Specially designed for the small-frame G-Series skid steers (312GR, 314G, 316GR, 318G) and compact track loader (CTL) (317G), the grading-heel bucket attachments are ideal for customers performing final grading applications.

The grading-heel buckets are similar in style and dimensions as standard dirt buckets, but feature a squared-off heel for back-dragging applications. The bottoms of the buckets are smooth, with no lifts or edges, which allow the bucket to create a flat surface with ease. These features make the grading-heel bucket an ideal option for a variety of jobs, including land shaping, dirt leveling, and installation of new landscape for sodding, irrigation, and drainage. The grading-heel buckets are available in two sizes — 60-inch and 66-inch — for use with most compact models in the G-Series lineup.

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 grading-heel bucket. The new attachment series is also backed by John Deere parts, service, and warranty coverage.
