When it comes to a project, there are plenty of excavator buckets to choose from. Each bucket will provide a different use, giving the operator plenty of choice for plant equipment. The most common buckets among the construction world are standard pin buckets. Here’s why the original buckets are normally the best!
What are standard pin buckets?
Standard pin buckets are the most common type of excavator bucket used on a construction site. They are used for the following purposes:
- Digging and moving soil and other materials
- Lifting rocks and heavier material
- Grading soil and other surfaces
Our standard pin buckets are made to the highest quality, with an immense amount of precision by our expert engineers. All of our buckets are made to be used for the most complex and challenging jobs.
They are also made to fit all OEM (original equipment manufacturer) hitches and couplers.

Other buckets available at Masterhitch
Depending on the type of project, standard pin buckets aren’t always up to the job. Sometimes operators find themselves needing other options in order to complete the project. Here at Masterhitch, we can also offer the following choices of buckets:
A trapezoidal bucket is used primarily for digging trenches and creating drainage ditches. The unique V shape of the buckets allows the operator to cleanly carve out trench walls, without damaging any nearby objects.
Due to the type of tasks, this bucket is made with additional reinforcement. With a high level of stress and pressure on specific components, only the best British Standard Steel is used to create the buckets.
Riddle buckets are perfect for any tasks that require materials to be sorted through. For example, separating rocks and soil can be a very tedious task if the operator doesn’t have the correct plant accessories to hand.
Masterhitch Riddle buckets can be made as standard to fit 7, 14, 21 & 30 tonne machines. Although, we are more than happy to draw up designs for buckets outside of these measurements.
