The production shovel bucket here was once mounted on a P & H shovel similar to the one pictured here.

The bucket capacity is 18 cubic yards which is equivalent to nearly 400 bushel baskets of dirt or broken rock.

Made of cast alloy iron, additional 'wear parts' are welded onto the surface of the bucket to extend the operating life. This is a constant task for mine welders. Bucket teeth, which are pinned on, are replaced by the 'bullgang' crew when worn down.

Shovel buckets vary in design, shape and weight to accommodate a wide range of material types like glacial overburden, or gravel, to denser high-grade metallic ores. The dipper can be changed on the shovel to customize the equipment for the job.
