Tilting Buckets with Rhinox

Our blog post featuring the Rhinox teams video bloopers proved to be very popular on the various Digger Man Blog social media platforms, but as promised, I said we would take a look at one of the company's bucket offerings.

Tilting Buckets with Rhinox

For those who don’t want to go to the expense of a full blown tiltrotator, a rotation system like we have been covering recently, or even a tilting coupler, the conventional hydraulic tilt bucket is a cost-effective solution for many end users.

Tilting grading buckets have been especially popular over the years in Australia and many parts of Central Europe, while in Scandinavia and the Nordic regions the tiltrotator remains the number one choice. There is no doubt they are a handy piece of kit to have in your attachment arsenal if you are working on a tight budget.
