Ditching Buckets

ACS Ditching Buckets are wider than general digging buckets and have a shorter tip radius for better leverage when reaching the excavator arm to its maximum distance - especially useful when using longer booms.

This bucket is ideal for cleaning out ditches, drainage canals, mucking ponds and lakes and other roadside maintenance.  It is typically installed on both tracked and wheeled excavators with either standard length or long-reach sticks.  No teeth are installed to allow the bucket to leave a smooth surface.

  • Bolt-On Edge

    Bolt-On Edge Comes installed with beveled, wear-resistant steel edge that takes the brunt of all first-contact impacts. Double-sided for twice extended life; when one side wears down, simply turn it around to expose the fresh edge.
  • Heavy Wall Cross Tube

    Heavy Wall Cross Tube All ACS Excavator Buckets are built with Heavy Wall Cross Tube reinforcement across the top. This transfers breakout forces directly to the bucket cutting edge.
  • High Strength Steel

    Heavy wear areas are constructed with premium-grade AR 400 steel for maximum impact and abrasion resistance. AR 400 steel has a minimum BNH (Brinell Hardness Number) of 360 and is valued for its durability and strong resistance to abrasion.
  • Single Radius Shell

    Single Radius Shell The sloped bottom, single-radius shell design provides superior loading and cleaning. The bottom of the bucket slopes up and away from the dig direction to facilitate boiling - the churning of material on a horizontal axis within the bucket which promotes faster loading with less required horsepower. The sloped bottom also reduces heel wear.
  • Skid Pads

    The underside is clad with welded-on AR 400 steel skid pads. AR 400 steel has a minimum BNH (Brinell Hardness Number) of 360 and is valued for it's durability and strong resistance to abrasion.
  • Trapezoidal Design

    Trapezoidal Design Tapered from front-to-back and bottom-to-top; keeping only the cutting edge in contact with handled material. This keeps the remaining surface area of the bucket from dragging, increasing the performance of your machine and reducing bucket wear.


  • Drainage Perforations

    Provide fast escape routes for unwanted liquid in your payload.
