Pro-Tech's unveils new lightweight bucket

Sno Basket allows for easy loading and hauling of snow, more capacity than a standard bucket.

July 15, 2016

Pro-Tech Manufacturing and Distribution announced its newest product offering, the Sno Basket,  a lightweight bucket that allows for easy loading and hauling of snow. 

The Sno Basket's flat-bottomed design allows for maximum collection of snow from piles.  It also offers more than twice the capacity of most stock backhoe and compact wheel loader buckets, for which the Sno Basket is designed.  Using the Sno Basket can also significantly reduce the wear to expensive cutting edges found on most stock buckets. The Sno Basket comes with a durable but economically priced replaceable steel cutting edge. 

"The decision to offer the Sno Basket was driven by our product development team's research and demand from customers, says Pro-Tech marketing director, Jered Shuknecht.  With the significant snow accumulations many customers are seeing and growing traffic on retail properties, we knew a product like this would be welcomed." 

The Sno Basket differs from standard buckets in not just capacity but the ability to eliminate unnecessary weight.  Slots on the bucket allow customers to compress and collect maximum amount of snow while also allowing water to escape when moving slushy snow.  The elimination of water weight in both the bucket, and truck bed can reduce operation times and fuel costs. 

The Sno Basket is built using fully welded construction and multiple connection types are available.  Parties interested in the Sno Basket should contact Pro-Tech to receive a custom quote.
