Tapco Style CC-HD & Style U-HD buckets are designed to increase elevator capacity by allowing closer bucket spacing on the belt. They are a modified (cut-down) version of our buckets, varying only in depth and weight. Application, performance, discharge and all other characteristics are exactly the same as our buckets of the same material.
Minimum bucket spacing has historically been nominal projection plus 2″. Many style CC buckets, however, are being used at projection plus 1″, and some even closer. For engineering purposes Tapco recommends using nominal projection plus 2″
