Wheel Loader Attachments
With the right attachments you can turn a simple machine into a tool that can perform any number of different construction jobs. From heavy duty rock buckets and rotating grapples, to booms, blades, and forks, wheel loader attachments save you time and money, and also make many jobs easier on your personnel and your equipment.
Here are the most common wheel loader attachments for:
Wheel loader blades
Blade attachments are optimized to move dirt, gravel, loose rocks, snow, and debris.
Wheel loader booms
Boom attachments allow efficient loading and manipulation of tubes and pipe fittings.
Wheel loader buckets
Wheel loader bucket attachments are standard for most wheel loaders, however you may purchase buckets in a variety of sizes or configurations:
- Compact buckets, 1.18-3.3 cubic yards capacity
- Small buckets, up to 6.5 cubic yards capacity
- Medium buckets, up to 16 cubic yards capacity
- Large buckets, 16+ cubic yards capacity
Wheel loader couplers
Coupler wheel loader attachments allow you to mount a variety of different attachments to your wheel loader, including attachments from a different manufacturer. Single-point, hydraulic, and 4-point couplers are available, based on your attachment requirements.

Wheel loader grapples
Grapple attachments equip your wheel loader for efficient and fast clearing of land, trees, brush, and more. Rotating grapple attachments allow for improved performance in rough conditions.

Wheel loader hay squeezers
Wheel loader hay squeeze attachments improve productivity by reducing dropped bales and are preferred to spears or hay forks for operations with many smaller bales or very large, rectangular bales:

- Hay squeeze
Wheel loader tree shears
Tree shear attachments can quickly remove trees and clear land and are better than grapples and rakes for parcels with larger diameter trees.
