325C and 325C L Excavator Boom/Stick/Bucket Combinations Caterpillar


Boom/Stick/Bucket Combinations
`

This machine can be equipped with a large variety of boom-stick-bucket combinations in order to meet the needs of various applications.

Buckets for the 325C and 325C L are grouped into two different families. The names of the two families of buckets are Cand D. The capacity of the bucket is used to differentiate between the two bucket families. As a general rule, use a bucket with a smaller capacity when you are using a longer stick and/or a longer boom. Conversely, use a bucket with a larger capacity when you are using a shorter stick and/or a shorter boom. This rule ensures better machine stability and protection against structural machine damage.

Each stick is designed to match a specific family of buckets. It is not possible to attach buckets of a different family to a given stick.

Tables 2 through 1 show various compatible boom-stick-bucket combinations. Select an optimum combination according to the working conditions and according to the type of work that is being done.
