Tapco Inc. has been producing durable, high-quality buckets for more than 40 years. We have the largest inventory of buckets in North America, with approximately 1 million buckets available in more than 178 sizes. Our buckets are used in both agricultural and industrial settings. We are happy to fill any sized order, and welcome rush orders. Our knowledgeable staff is willing to discuss which bucket will best suit your needs, and to explain how to use them in the safest way possible.
Buckets Product Lines
Our buckets come in many styles and sizes. Our standard agricultural buckets are the CC-HD and CC-XD buckets. The two styles are interchangeable and have the same capacity. CC-XD is a heavy-duty version of CC-HD. Both are available in polyethylene, nylon, and urethane. Nylon buckets are best for jobs that will expose the buckets to more difficult conditions. Urethane buckets are intended for high through-put or abrasive applications. We also manufacture "low profile" versions of these buckets. These styles allow you to put more buckets on the elevator, increasing the amount of materials that can be moved. Tapco produces EuroBuckets, designed to replace many European-style buckets, including Starco and EuroJet buckets.
We also make industrial buckets from the same materials as our agricultural buckets, with a steel option available. Our industrial buckets come with different sized fronts - low, medium, and high - to accommodate various amounts of material. Our high-front buckets also come in an overlapping style. This prevents materials from leaking between buckets.
Tapco buckets can be used to transport a variety of materials. Our agricultural buckets are best suited for grains, salts, various beans and different chemicals, while our industrial buckets are ideal for various types of sand, gravel and clay.
Buckets Manufacturing ProcessWe use prime virgin materials and offer product samples prior to purchase. Our buckets can come in a variety of materials. Our polyethylene is "slow-burning" and is tested under the ASTM Test No. D635. Some of our polyethylene buckets meet Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 302 and Underwriters' Laboratory Bulletin No. 94. We would welcome the chance to explain which buckets work best for what jobs, and relevant safety information.
