V50 Skeleton Rock Bucket Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE V30, V40, V50, AND V60 SKELETON ROCK BUCKETS?
See the comparison chart under the “Compare” tab.
WHAT WIDTH SHOULD I PURCHASE?
Typically, the bucket width should be larger than the width of the skid steer.
Dense items like rocks may overload the skid steer when using a large width V50 Skeleton Rock Bucket. Always reference recommended loader capacity before ordering.
If you are unsure about what width to purchase, call your local dealer or contact Virnig at 800-648-2408.
WHAT MAKES A VIRNIG V50 ROCK BUCKET UNIQUE?
What makes it unique is:
- The first skeleton rock bucket design originated from Virnig Manufacturing in the early 2000’s.
- The shortened bucket height allows the cutting edge to remain visible to the operator.
- The recessed load area behind the rock dam better cradles rocks so they stay in the bucket during transport.
- The V50 Rock Bucket is constructed with high-strength, ⅜” thick Grade 80 steel (80,000 PSI yield strength).
- The increased visibility provided by the open, skeletal back ensures that fence posts or other damaging debris won’t easily go unnoticed and puncture a tire.
- The unique safety step is made of durable, laser cut steel in an aggressive pattern that will grip in the worst conditions.

WHY DOES VIRNIG USE NITROSTEEL® CYLINDER RODS?
Virnig uses NitroSteel® rods because they are a superior performing alternative to chrome plating. The finish offers improved corrosion resistance and better grease retention.
Chrome plated cylinder rods can flake or pit and destroy the seals or other internal components; resulting in downtime and expensive repairs.
A NitroSteel® rod will perform better and increase the service life of a cylinder, making it the cost-effective choice.
WHAT IS THE SETUP TIME FOR A VIRNIG SKID STEER ATTACHMENT?
Most Virnig attachments are ready to work right off the pallet.
To minimize set up time, Virnig Manufacturing requires the machine brand and model to be listed on each order for attachments with hydraulic components to ensure proper hose length, routing, and coupler sizing. In addition, all hydraulic Virnig Attachments are tested for leaks and proper operation before leaving the factory. There may be specific scenarios in which additional setup time will be required.
