“When I bought my 3.5ton Kobalco digger in Melbourne, I had to try and find a GP bucket for it,” said Darrin, an individual contractor based in Airlie Beach, Queensland, “and the team at Brisbane Mini Excavators recommended OZ Excavator Buckets as a supplier of quality attachments.”
HELFPUL CUSTOMER SUPPORT
“The team really knows their stuff. I gave them a call and they were very helpful — they informed me that there are actually 3 different types of my machine, each with 3 different dimensions, so making a bucket for my digger required more than just a one-size-fits-all approach,” said Darrin.
GP BUCKET PICKUP MANUFACTURED TO CORRECT SPECS
“We actually sorted it all out using the serial number of my machine,” said Darrin.
“All I had to do was send the dimensions, the serial number and a couple of photos to the team at OZ Excavator Buckets, and they did the research. They really put in the effort to get it right — tracking down the manufacturer so that the GP bucket would be manufactured exactly to spec.
“The bucket I needed turned up 8 days later, together with the quick hitch I had also bought. I was really impressed!
“Since the bucket has turned up, I’ve had no problem at all. I really appreciate the effort they went to!”

“Having grown from 12 to 200 machines on hire, we count on OZ Excavator Buckets’ attachments to perform!”
For 12 years, OZ Excavator Buckets has remained Gerard O’Brien’s favourite excavator and earthmoving attachments supplier.
Gerard, from Pipeline Plant Hire, is happy to say that Pete and his team at OZ Excavator Buckets have never let him down, even as his demands change with his move into the Coal Seam Gas (CSG) industry.
Excavator Attachments for Coal Seam Gas projects
“Six years ago we only had 12 Hitachi machines for hire, and 12 months ago that number had grown to 64. Now we have around 200 machines!” says Gerard.
“Our machines are on hire throughout Australia — and 99% of these are being used in the coal seam gas industry.”
Changing demand for excavator attachments
“We have always ordered a mix of attachments, but with the increased demands of the CSG industry we are ordering mainly buckets, rippers and compaction wheels from OZ Excavator Buckets,” says Gerard.
Prompt delivery, no matter the location
“OZ Excavator Buckets’ service is prompt and very good.”
“Having around 200 machines out on hire means a lot of customers, a lot of jobs, and a lot of deadlines to meet. When one of our customers requires an attachment, we need to be able to get it to him as soon as possible.
“Our machines are located in different parts of Australia, and Pete will ship excavator attachments direct to the different locations, with the fastest turnaround of any manufacturer!

When Jeremy Goulder required a new trimming bucket for his company’s excavator, he was looking for a supplier who could get a bucket to him ASAP.With his business being based in Adelaide, he first tried calling around local suppliers; but it wasn’t until Jeremy reached out to OZ Excavator Buckets that he was able to find the speedy service he required.
OZ Excavator Buckets delivers FAST
“I called OZ Excavator Buckets on the Tuesday morning and the bucket reached me in Adelaide the following Thursday morning,” says Jeremy.
“Had I purchased from a supplier in Adelaide, I would have had to pay $500 more, and wait 10 days for it to be delivered,” Jeremy adds.
Customer takes priority
Jeremy’s company, JRBCH, is not large… but OZ Excavator Buckets made his order a priority.
“I noticed that when I came to pick the bucket up, it had been labeled with my company’s name and instructions to deliver the bucket to me as soon as possible,” says Jeremy.
“I could tell they had made every effort to help me out.”
Jeremy was also very happy to find that OZ Excavator Buckets shares in his passion for good service.
“I believe that if your business looks after people, they will come back — and it seems OZ Excavator Buckets understands this,” says Jeremy, “I called Michelle at OZ Excavator Buckets and told her to tell the boss how happy I was with their service, and that people do appreciate the hard yards they put in for their customers.”
After six years in the civil construction business, Jeremy understands how minimizing down-time is critical in the competitive market he that works in.
“There are plenty other contractors out there all competing for my contracts,” says Jeremy. “So I really feel the pressure to get a job done on time. That’s why I’ll be sure to use and recommend OZ Excavator Buckets again”.
When deciding on a new excavator bucket, there’s often the temptation to go for the cheapest price. But this is not always wise, as poor quality buckets and other attachments can actually cost you more money in the long run when it comes to repairs and/or modifications. As the art critic John Ruskin famously said:
“The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”
At OZ Excavator Buckets, we often see this when gloomy-faced operators come to us seeking help with repairs to buckets (not purchased from us), which should have been performing faultlessly had they been engineered and manufactured correctly.
To get the best return on your investment, there are a number of things you need to be aware of. These considerations apply when buying any excavator attachment.
So, how do you make sure your next mud bucket, GP bucket, sieve bucket, tilt bucket, ripper or any other attachment is a good quality product? Consider these three tips when purchasing your next attachment…
1) Does the excavator attachment come from a company with a good reputation within the industry?
You don’t want to waste money on a bucket that’s going to fail you a few months later, so by purchasing your attachment from a seller that has a good reputation, you’re minimising the risk.
At OZ Excavator Buckets, we go out of our way to provide our customers with excellent quality products and a positive buying experience — every single time. But don’t just take our word for it! See our testimonials page here to find out what our customers are saying about us…
2) Is the attachment made from high quality materials?
When it comes to manufacturing excavator attachments, the quality of material is one of the most important factors. If sub standard materials are used, or steel that isn’t the right grade and/or thickness, then this will have serious implications for the durability and strength of your bucket.
To get the biggest return on investment from your bucket, you need it to last for the longest time possible. At OZ Excavator Buckets, we don’t compromise when it comes to the quality of materials used to manufacture our attachments — so you can be confident they’ll last the distance.
All our products are assembled by an experienced team of fabricators and welders who produce high quality work.
3) Is the bucket well engineered?
A bucket can be made from the best available materials, but if the design isn’t correct then it will not be long before it starts cracking or breaking up due to the high stresses and strains it gets exposed to. We’ve been designing and manufacturing buckets for many years, and each of our prototypes has undergone rigorous testing to ensure optimum strength and durability.
If the price of an excavator bucket seems too good to be true, then it probably is. Instead of buying a cheap, low quality excavator attachment, do your research and buy from a company that manufacture quality products at a reasonable price. It may very well save you money in the long run.

Alec Creasy, owner of Creasy’s Earthmoving, began using Excavator Buckets a few years ago when some machinery he bought came fitted with their buckets. And recently, when he had an issue with one of their products, the team at OZ Excavator Buckets went out of their way to fix it promptly — no questions asked.
Problem with servicing tilt bucket
“I ordered a 20 tonne tilt bucket,” explains Alec, “and I used it for a while with great results. However, greasing the main tilt head pin became a problem. It turned out that there was an issue with the grease channels in the main pin bushes — restricting grease getting to the main pin.
“I deal with machines a lot, so I understand that things sometimes go wrong… but the important test is how the company deals with the issue.
OZ Excavator Buckets goes the extra mile
“I got in touch with the team at OZ Excavator Buckets and they said they’d fix it — no problem. One of the guys there stayed late on a Friday night to sort it out for me. And when I got the tilt bucket back, they’d repaired it 100%.
“In fact, they’d even done a few extra jobs on the bucket, including turning the bolt on blade around to compensate for wear, replacing the bolts and adding hard facing to the cutting edge.
“I was delighted with the results.”
Quality tilt buckets and excellent service
“I use OZ Excavator Buckets because they provide high quality equipment at a reasonable price — and their service is good, too.
“When I had an issue they stepped right up and fixed it, which is really important and a good indication of the type of company they are. I’ve got no complaints about them, and will definitely buy excavator attachments from them again in the future.”

Selecting a good quality mud bucket, that won’t let you down, is important. The right bucket will ensure you earn more money by moving more material, reduce your fuel servicing costs, while saving you time and keeping your customers happy.
Here are a few quick points to bear in mind when you’re selecting a new batter bucket that will help you achieve the best possible results.
- Know your application
It may seem obvious, but your first priority is to determine the type of material you’ll need to move, and the lifting capacity of the machine you’ll be using. Once you have this information, you’ll be able to find the right sand, mud, batter or loading bucket for your application.
- Bucket geometry
A good, high performance excavator trim bucket has the right proportions and bucket geometry to provide efficient loading and unloading of materials. Choosing a mud bucket with the right geometry will improve your productivity and performance.
- Construction and durability
Examine the batter bucket to ensure a heavy-duty, robust construction that offers increased strength and longer bucket life.
- Bucket width and capacity
Select a mud bucket with the correct width, depth and capacity to suit the volume and constituency of the materials you will be handling for more efficient bucket fills
- A heavy duty head plate
The strength of the head plate is important to ensure the loading bucket can withstand the stresses and strains of the job. A solid head plate provides strength through the bucket from the ears for optimum digging power.
- Cutting edge
The cutting edge can be reinforced with bolt-on edges for extra strength and better durability.
“OZ Buckets manufactured the buckets for our LiuGong excavators,” says Will Doyle, sales product specialist at machinery dealers McIntosh & Son, Queensland, “and when they arrived, I showed them to a couple of excavator drivers who said they were the best-made, strongest buckets they’d ever seen.”
Quality excavator buckets
That was the first time Will had used OZ Excavator Buckets, and he was extremely impressed with the excellent quality of the equipment.
He says: “Their products are so strong that you don’t even need to look at any other company. The manufacturing is great, and you can tell they don’t skimp on the materials or cut any corners. From now on, we’ll be using their buckets for all our excavators.”
Quick hitch in a hurry
Because he was so happy with his first purchase, Will contacted OZ Excavator Buckets a few months later to request a quick hitch for an extremely tight deadline. As he explains: “Our client needed the quick hitch as soon as possible, so I got in touch with Michelle to see if they could help.”
“OZ Excavator Buckets managed to supply the quick hitch in less than half the time it usually takes — and they didn’t charge me any extra. In fact, their prices are consistently very competitive.
“When dealing with OZ Excavator Buckets, I’ve found them to be an extremely true, genuine company. And I’m astounded at the level of knowledge the staff have! They really do know their stuff and go out of their way to help you.”
Customer service, efficiency and value for money
Overall, Will has found buying from the company to be an overwhelmingly positive experience.
“Michelle and the rest of the team at OZ Excavator Buckets always make an effort to get back to you RIGHT away. I’ve been extremely impressed with their customer service, efficiency and value for money.
“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others.”
