The total amount of material carried by a bucket is the amount inside the bucket plus the amount piled on top of it. This is called the Heaped or Rated Capacity. The amount of material piled on top of the bucket, (heap), is determined by the angle of repose of the material being handled.

## How is loader bucket capacity calculated?

Count the number of squares that the cross section takes up to estimate the heap’s cross sectional area. Combine parts of squares and count them as one square. Multiply the area you find with the width of the bucket to find the total capacity.

## What is the capacity of a loader bucket?

Gross Power (HP at rpm) 25 HP
Maximum operating weight 5000 Kg
Maximum Dig Depth (mm) 3000 mm
Loader Bucket Capacity (cum) 2.6 cum

## How do you measure a bucket size?

Measure the inside depth of the bucket by measuring from the deepest point in the bucket to a point along the center of the outside edge. Measure the distance between the outside edges of the furthest most teeth or the full width of the cutting edge.

## How is bucket fill factor calculated?

Fill Factor is the percentage of an available volume in a hauler body, bucket or bowl that is actually used. For example, a fill factor of 87 percent for a hauler body means that 13 percent of the rated volume is not being used to carry material. Buckets often have fill factors over 100 percent.

## What is the formula of volume of bucket?

Formula used: The volume of the bucket or frustum cone is given by [{text{V = }}dfrac{1}{3}{{pi h}}left[ {{text{r}}_1^2 + {{text{r}}_{text{1}}}{{text{r}}_{text{2}}} + {text{r}}_2^2} right]]\${text{c}}{{text{m}}^{text{3}}}\$.

## How is excavator bucket capacity calculated?

Divide the per cycle payload (6.67 tons) by the material density (1.25 tons/cu. yd.) to determine the nominal bucket capacity: 6.67 / 1.25 = 5.28 cu yds.
