So a quick heads up for anyone interested in getting out to Sweden and seeing for yourself what exactly is out there and what those guys actually run, without any censorship from manufacturers, itís really not that difficult.

Iíve just booked up for the new show out there, itís only itís second running and having been a few times to MaskinExpo I thought Iíd have a change.

Flying direct out of Manchester with a couple of nights in a mid range Airport Hotel comes to just over £250 yesterday.
Trust me this will be three times that come show date!
Good flights out of the London Airports too.

I simply canít recommend it enough, nothing daunting, they are so friendly and helpful, and Iíve never failed to come back better educated and armed with the business cards of some great contacts.

What makes a Scandi style grading bucket a good idea? I understand the angled bottom corner bit, but they look far too long in the blade; the rotation ark must be massive.

The primary reason for the length of the blade is to minimise the drag from the side cheeks. A conventional British bucket with straight sides will take more digging force. If you look at all of the Scandi bucket designs, it's a common feature.

It's also really emphasised on the cable bucket - partly to minimise the drag, but also to dig under services without disturbing them.

it also enables you to 'carry' a lot on the toe Chris .. instead of having to 'fill' the whole bucket .....
"you don't have to fill the bucket, all the time" as a certain Viking said to me last year

You honestly won't appreciated the scandinavian style grading bucket until you use one..... then it will all make sense

As Robert says, minimise drag, you are carrying material on the lip rather then in the bucket, so loading takes less effort, both to get it in and get it out. Alos as said it is easier to get "under" objects such as boulders etc.

I pride myself in my ability to fill a bucket, quite often what I stick in it is too much....

Glad I'm not the only one....

I have two grading buckets... A 5' "general" bucket.... and the mighty
6' "PRODUCTION" Grader for ditching and profiling works.

Need a New Bulking bucket soon... I reckon 4' is the way forward on a 7.5t machine.
