Sieve Buckets

Are you looking for a sieve bucket for your excavator or backhoe?

ShawX is a leading manufacturer of sieve buckets for the earthmoving industry.

Our sieve buckets have a long front with full through bars to assist with rolling the material through the bucket. We custom manufacture all styles and sizes. The sieves in the bucket are correctly sized to ensure that the material that is produced is to specification and your gauge can be custom made into the bucket to suit your material and request.

Sieve Bucket Uses

Sieve buckets, or skeleton buckets as they are also known, are purpose built to separate debris from any soil or sand materials. Larger items are held in the bucket while the finer material is sifted through the bucket to separate materials such as rock, rubble, timber and rubbish, only to be left with a finer product at the end.

Sieve buckets are used a lot in farming and general contract use for final clean up, being able to separate rocks and debris from sand, soil and finer material.

They are also often used in demolition, being able to separate concrete, timber, steel, rubbish and debris from each other, as well as shaking the finer sands and soils out to be left with a clean product at the end.

All ShawX sieve buckets have a full through bar holding them together which makes them one whole piece. This ensures a sturdy construction which increases the longevity of the buckets.
