Why Choose a Gyru-Star Screening Buckets for Your Backhoe Loader? 

Gyru-Star screening buckets are designed to maximise the capabilities of your machinery and enable you to transform your liabilities into assets. These buckets are perfect for screening, mixing, spreading and aerating materials on site, providing a quick and efficient way to manage different types of materials.

Gyru-Star screening buckets are the perfect screening solution for backhoe loaders, with both excavator arm and loader compatible models available. The unique design of Gyru-Star screening buckets allows for superior performance in separating soil, compost, and waste materials, ensuring that your backhoe loader can handle a wider range of tasks with ease.

Flexible polyurethane stars rotate in an upwards direction, creating a rolling action inside the bucket. This causes the undersize material to fall through the gaps in the stars, without crushing or shredding the product. Coupled with the non-stick stainless-steel floor, the poly-stars also allow Gyru-Star screening buckets to maintain their performance in wet conditions, or when screening sticky material such as clay.

Every bucket in the Gyru-Star range comes fully equipped with a full range of industry-leading features, as standard. However, the ultra-low maintenance carbon belt drive is by far the standout feature. As the driveline requires zero greasing oiling, the need for daily maintenance is eliminated, minimising downtime. This system is also far quieter than the outdated chain-drive systems used by other manufacturers, making Gyru-Star buckets well suited for noise-sensitive sites.

Additionally, the multi-layer monocoque chassis of each bucket is reinforced with Hardox plate in high wear areas, such as the cutting edge. This makes them some of the most durable screening buckets in the industry.

By integrating these buckets, operators can significantly reduce the need for additional machinery, lowering operational costs and improving overall job site efficiency. The robust construction and innovative features of Gyru-Star screening buckets make them a reliable and long-lasting solution for enhancing the functionality of your backhoe loader.
