[edit] How it Works

A bucket loader is essentially a portable continuous bucket elevator. Bucket loaders were commonly used in the 1920’s for road construction. Their role was to load gravel and sand onto a truck directly from the supply source. The truck would then take the materials to the construction site. Bucket loaders were superseded by cranes and bins by the late 1920’s.[1]
