Buckets are our Business
We were established as a mobile welding service in 1978, specialising in on-site bucket repair and refurbishment. Even at this early stage our work ethic was evident in our determination to provide a second to none service. This standard formed the company’s foundation and remains the cornerstone of its ethos today.
In the early 1980s, having learned through repairing countless bucket designs the limitations of traditional buckets, we began to design and manufacture wheeled loading shovels and hydraulic excavator buckets. Over time the orders started to increase and more customers in the construction, mining and quarrying industries began to specify the Miller bucket.
Our commitment to produce quality, reliable buckets that could optimise machine performance soon became recognised throughout the industry and as the company’s profile and reputation was realised, Miller became a brand to trust.
By 1989 we had expanded substantially and the first Miller Quick Coupler was launched. The lengthy and sometimes dangerous process of bucket and attachment changeover was transformed to a quick, clean and simple procedure enabling operators to work more efficiently, productively and safely.
On the back of the success of the quick coupler range came our revolutionary Scoop bucket. The Scoop was our answer to the perceived loss in digging power resulting from quick coupler use on larger excavators. Designed to minimise the additional pin-to-point distance gained when installing a coupler, the Scoop and coupler combination can help maximise excavator efficiency and versatility.
Today, we offer an extensive range of buckets for different machine types ranging from 1 to 550 tonne in weight. Designed to complement and enhance machine performance, our buckets have a reputation for strength, durability and reliability, which stems from the quality workmanship and dedication that goes into producing every single product.
