TAPCO Replacement Elevator Buckets

Tapco stocks the largest inventory of elevator buckets and bolts in North America, some 900,000 buckets in 64 sizes, and 15 million bolts.

For over 35 years, and in more than 50 countries, Tapco has been solving the problem of bent & torn steel buckets. During a “hang-up” the Tapco bucket will “give or yield” to bypass obstructions. Then its memory will return it to its original shape. In tests, we have pulled the front lip down below the bottom of the bucket – it did not crack or tear – but slowly returned to a usable condition.

Only TAPCO buckets are molded from prime virgin polyethylene in a grade this tough. The most common cause of bucket elevator downtime is “bucket failure”. TAPCO buckets keep working long after other brands fail! Minimize your downtime. Use TAPCO elevator buckets.

The “HEAVY DUTY” nonmetallic elevator bucket...

A heavy duty agricultural bucket for handling grains, feeds, fertilizers, seeds, salt, sand, chemicals, and a variety of other free flowing materials. Polyethylene is ideal for most applications, while nylon or urethane is recommended for highly abrasive products or extremely high throughput elevators.
