Caterpillar Attachments’ Performance Series flat-floor bucket is designed specifically for Cat M and K Series small wheel loaders. The flat-floor buckets are general purpose buckets that incorporate a specially designed long floor and a rear cutting edge for performing light grading or back-dragging.

Performance Series Buckets feature curved side bars to promote an aggressive cut, as well as better rollover, and also incorporate a wide-throat design for easier loading and increased fill factors. Compared with competitive flat-floor buckets of the same rated capacity, the Cat Performance Series models have higher fill factors, averaging 110%, resulting in greater productivity and lower costs per yard.

The reinforced side edges, corner and side-edge protectors, plus the bolt-on cutting edge or weld-on teeth significantly extend the life of the bucket's base surfaces, and an integrated spill guard and material-deflector plates protect the bucket linkage from spill-over. The long-floor models also work well with laser control during forward grading, and the rear cutting edge is designed to leave a quality finish when back-dragging.

The new Performance Series flat-floor buckets are available in rated capacities from 3.0 to 3.8 cubic yards and with a choice of interfaces — pin-on, Fusion coupler, or ISO.
