Trench Buckets

Are you looking for a Trench Bucket for your excavator?

ShawX trench buckets are ideal for ensuring the perfect trench, quick and simple use, all while saving you money.

ShawX trench buckets have a large side taper with a long floor and a continuous radius skin to reduce the drag on the bucket as it’s digging through deep trenches, increasing bucket performance and taking the load off your machine and in turn reducing fuel consumption as well as wear and tear on your machine.

Trench Bucket Uses

Every contractor knows that a purpose built trench bucket is a workhorse and will pay back ten fold the cost of the bucket.

Don’t be fooled by cheap imported imitations that are not up to the task. At ShawX, we put the right amount of material in the correct areas to ensure that you have a bucket that will last the distance without being too heavy, or outing extra load on your machine.

ShawX Trench Buckets

  • Australian made to suit our Australian conditions
  • User-friendly design featuring
    • A large side taper to prevent the bucket from jamming in trenches and protect the sidewall
    • Continuous radius skin to reduce drag and increase bucket performance
    • Dual top boxing for added strength in the top of the bucket
  • Custom sizes and widths available to suit your specific trench size, needs and applications

As our attachments are not produced in large batches and are made for each customer in our Brisbane based workshop, we are able to build everything custom, from size, shape, capacity and even colour.

Standard sizes include 300, 450, 600, 900, 1200, depending on machine size.

Our trench buckets are available with or without teeth.

Service savers and removeable service savers are available to ensure digging ability in all applications over services and power, water, whatever it may be.
