Skeleton buckets are handy for removing large rocks and other large debris and dirt from the ground when building a new home, installing a pool, or clearing land for other purposes. The machine often comes with grade 50 steel which will provide strength to conduct rigorous digging, landscaping, and picking rocks.
When a skeleton rock bucket is needed on a work site, it's imperative to deliver it on time, so the crew will have access to it for the task at hand. Nothing is worse for a construction crew than to have to wait around on equipment when trying to finish a job for a customer.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, but it would help if you pay significantly more to speed up the transportation time. The company will then adjust another order to speed up yours.
How long the load takes to drop-off from the pick-up depends on multiple factors. The most obvious one is distance. The further you need your cargo transported, the more it will cost to speed up the process. It also depends on what route the driver is taking.
If you are transporting the Skeleton Bucket separately, you only need a small flatbed trailer. However, most companies will attach it to suitable heavy equipment if any require transporting. The driver still needs to transport equipment, and the Skeleton Bucket won't affect the delivery.
If the cargo is attached to your preferred vehicle, you will require a flatbed trailer. A tractor or a skid-steer can be easily transported on one as it's conveniently shaped with no edges or bumps.
Companies can transport a front-end loader using a flatbed, but other methods are also used for the heavier ones, such as a removable gooseneck or a step-deck trailer. Both of these have their ramps making loading much more convenient as the loaders can direct all their focus on it.
No, technically, the answer depends on the heavy equipment. However, skeleton buckets are usually attached to machinery such as tractors, skid-steers, and sometimes, a front-end loader, none of which fall under the large category.
None of these come close to that category with a weight limit of 46000. The front-end loader weighs an average of 15000 pounds and is the heaviest of the above options. The skid-steer weighs about 7500 pounds, whereas a tractor weighs just 6000 pounds.
The Skeleton Bucket weighs only 1000 pounds maximum. Hence it doesn't significantly impact the overall weight of the cargo. Even if it's attached to heavy equipment, the overall weight will be well below the limit, so you need not worry.
Technically yes, you can transport it own. A Skeleton Bucket is about 8 feet in width and 2 feet in height and has an average weight of 850 pounds. This means it isn't a heavy load and will only require a small trailer. Of course, the loaders will have to pack it carefully. If you have the original packaging, then the process will be much easier for you.
This might make you think that you should just rent a flatbed and hire somebody to drive it, but this method puts a big question mark on the safety of your cargo. Hiring shipping companies that are already well-known and have good reviews ensures the security of your Skeleton Bucket. Hence you should avoid transporting your load alone and let the professionals handle it.
