V50 Multi-Purpose Bucket Frequently Asked Questions
WHICH SURFACE MATERIAL IS THE VIRNIG MULTI-PURPOSE BUCKET BEST SUITED FOR?
Virnig Multi-Purpose Buckets can be used on nearly every surface, however some sticky materials such as clay require additional maintenance for longevity. Cleaning around hinge points and behind the cylinders will ensure long-term performance.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE HOLDING VALVE OPTION?
The holding valve reduces the amount of hydraulic pressure lost while working and creates more clamping force. This allows the Multi-Purpose Bucket to better hold an item within the jaws and not experience hydraulic movement when grading.
WHAT WIDTH MULTI-PURPOSE BUCKET SHOULD I PURCHASE?
Typically, the bucket width should be larger than the width of the skid steer.
The material to be handled by the Multi-Purpose Bucket needs to be taken into account. For example, logs can be handled easier with a wider bucket whereas dense items like rocks may overload the skid steer when using a large width 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 EDGE OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR THIS VIRNIG BUCKET?
This Virnig Bucket can be paired with a Bolt-On Edge, Serrated Edge, Toothbar Over Weld-On Edge, Toothbar Over Weld-On and Bolt-On Edge, or Weld-On Teeth.

WHAT TYPE OF ATTACHMENT INTERFACE/HOOKUP DOES VIRNIG USE?
All Virnig skid steer attachments are manufactured with a universal mount to fit most skid steer loaders. The mounting frame is built to ISO 24410 and SAE J2513 standards.
All Virnig mini skid steer attachments are manufactured with a Toro®/mini universal mount, Bobcat® mount, or ASV® mount.
WHAT IS THE SETUP TIME FOR A VIRNIG ATTACHMENT?
Most Virnig attachments are ready to work right off the pallet.
To minimize setup time, Virnig Manufacturing requires the machine brand and model to be listed in every order for attachments with hydraulic components. This ensures 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.
HOW QUICKLY CAN I GET REPLACEMENT PARTS?
Most parts for Virnig skid steer attachments are available in-stock and can be shipped as early as the same day the order is received. Fabricated and back ordered parts are available with a reasonable lead time. Virnig uses several shipping options to provide timely and cost effective delivery to customers.
Check with a local Virnig dealer for replacement part availability.
WHAT WARRANTY DOES VIRNIG OFFER?
All Virnig parts and attachments are warranted for one year from the end user’s date of purchase, or the dealer’s date of first rental/demonstration. If the warranty period has expired, a sales receipt or first rental slip will be required for warranty consideration.
WHY DOES VIRNIG USE NITROSTEEL® CYLINDER RODS?
Virnig uses NitroSteel® cylinder 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. Learn more about the benefits of the NitroSteel® process.
