A bucket cylinder is an essential component of hydraulic systems used in various types of heavy machinery, particularly excavators and backhoes. As its name implies, this type of cylinder is responsible for the movement of the bucket or scoop of the machine. It works by converting hydraulic fluid pressure into mechanical force, which in turn powers the bucket movement. Bucket cylinders are typically made of high-strength steel, and come in various sizes and configurations to suit different machine specifications and applications. They are critical components that ensure the efficient operation of heavy machinery, making them essential in construction, mining, and other industries.
