Beet Bucket lifting root crops on a tractor front end loader

Beet Bucket

Rata Beet Buckets are an ideal and cost effective implement for harvesting root crops like Fodder Beet. By scooping the beet and leaving the soil behind, the roots can then be washed clean with a hose or loaded straight into your trailer. The strong design with 25mm solid bars and a high tensile cutting edge means this bucket will last the test of time & also be used for other tasks. The long, flat and functional design of the fodder beet bucket base combined with standard skids makes this fodder beet bucket easy to use. The buckets can be made to fit to almost any brand of front end loader or Telehandler.

Beet Buckets enable you to harvest & feed out the exact amount required when transitioning stock onto fodder beet, which is crucial for a succesful transition without losing any stock from rumen acidosis. Simply harvest the Beet & feed it out through the wagon or spread it on the ground for the stock to eat.

    Gaps between the bars of  Rata Beet Bucket leave clean & dirt free crops behind

    3 Excellent Dirt Flow
    Rata's Beet Bucket design allows for excellent flow of dirt through the bucket when pushing - It has no obstructions to the flow at the rear such as cross bars etc that prevent this. The dirt free crop when lifted means you can feed it out straight away.

    Testimonials

    Frank Archer - Landfall Farms Tasmania

    We're in our second year of operation with the Rata Beet Bucket now.

    We've just been transitioning some weaner heifers to beet over the past few weeks so it's been getting a lot of work recently, it certainly saves us a lot of time and particularly a lot of man hours, so all in all the buckets done exactly what we asked of it.

    Grant Moore - Beet Bucket

    This is my Rata Beet Bucket I purchased a bit over a year ago, I use it for pulling out fodder beet & it does a nice clean job. I also use it for a bit of firewood & picking up the odd down cow to take to a nice warm place.

    I'm very impressed with it, Thanks Rata!
