John Deere expanded its lineup of Worksite Pro attachments with the addition of the new grading-heel buckets. Designed for the new Small-Frame G-Series skid-steers (312GR, 314G, 316GR, 318G) and compact track loader (317G), the grading-heel bucket attachments are ideal for customers performing final grading applications, the company said.

The grading-heel buckets are similar in style and dimensions as standard dirt buckets but feature a squared-off heel for back-dragging applications. The bottoms of the buckets are smooth, with no lifts or edges, which allow the buckets to create a flat surface. The product is available in 60- and 66-inch sizes.

“We’re seeing construction spaces getting tighter, especially in the residential building industry, and customers are seeing the value of operating smaller machines in these areas,” said Gregg Zupancic, product marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “Add an attachment like the new grading-heel bucket, and contractors can work comfortably and efficiently in tight quarters without sacrificing productivity.”

The new attachment series is backed by John Deere parts, service and warranty coverage.
