AGRICULTURAL BUCKET – LOW PROFILE
Tapco “Low Profile” 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.
Guide to engineering “Low Profile” elevator buckets:
• Usable capacity: Water level (WL) +5%.
• Recommended spacing: 1″ less than nominal projection.
• Consideration should be given to belt strength, horsepower, mechanical requirements and
system ability to handle additional weight and volume.
