John Deere debuted its enhanced production series buckets for the 744K-II, 824K-II, and 844K-III wheel loader models.

The new buckets feature an improved profile, integrated narrow spill guards, bushed static bucket pin joints, and optional wear plating.

Curved profile side cutters allow for improved carriage of loose material. Narrow spill guards give operators greater visibility of each load to reduce loading time, loads per machine, and fuel consumption. Wheel loader linkage is also protected.

The bushed static bucket pin joints reduce overall maintenance time by reducing the need for welding and align boring, so operators can perform repairs in the field.

Optional wear plates are built to extend bucket life, and non-wear plate buckets are available with external cheek plates only.
