Bucket Fill Factors and Selection Chart
The bucket size must be chosen based on the density of the material and on the expected fill factor. The new Cat Performance Series Buckets with longer
floor, larger bucket opening, increased repository angle, rounded side boards and integrated spill guard, demonstrate fill factors significantly higher than
previous generation or non Cat buckets. The actual volume handled by the machine is thus often larger than the rated capacity.
