The Alaska Heavy Duty elevator bucket is a grade above older CC style buckets. It has the traditional shape, fill and discharge characteristics, with the thicker wear surfaces our buckets are famous for. The result is longer life and greater performance. Alaska buckets are direct replacements for CC and other standard bucket styles. Standard spacing is nominal projection plus 2" inches. Exceptional performance in most agricultural applications.

Q. Why was the CC-MAX designed?
Over the last several years, customers kept asking Maxi-Lift for a CC style bucket that would last longer. They wanted a bucket with more strength, longer life, and more capacity. They told us they were tired of replacing buckets every few years because the bucket life was less than they expected out of their buckets.
Q. Why is it better than older CC designs?
There are several key reasons why the CC-MAX is better than previous designs. With 20%+ thicker front lip corners, the bucket will last longer, maintain capacity longer, and give you the toughness to handles today's harsher applications. The bucket is also designed with more capacity to help you move more bulk material faster within the same bucket elevator.
- 20%+ thicker front lip
- 20%+ thicker front corners
- 5%+ more capacity
Q. Why are the corners and lip thicker?
The front corners and front lip are 20% thicker to give you longer life. When a bucket wears, the front lip and corners take the most abuse. As your bucket wears, these areas will wear down to a point in which the entire front lip will rip out of the bucket leaving you with little or no capacity. The CC-MAX eliminates these problems by giving you more material in the places the bucket wears out first.
Q. How do I get more capacity with the CC-MAX?
The CC-MAX is designed to maximize the capacity of the bucket. It gives you a little more capacity from the start and helps maintain rated capacity longer. Since the corners and front lip do not wear as fast as other CC buckets, it maintains your elevator capacity longer.
Q. How will the CC-MAX discharge?
The CC-MAX is built on the same principles as the original CC metal elevator buckets that were designed by KI-Willis in the early 1950â€™s. With straight sides, curved bottom, and precise exit angle, the buckets will discharge correctly over a wide range of speeds and pulleyâ€™s sizes.
Q. What material is the CC-MAX made from?
The CC-MAX is made from three different materials - Prime Virgin Polyethylene, Du Pont ST Zytel Nylon, and Urethane. Each material provides different bucket characteristics to guarantee longer life, and less breakage. See material chart for more details on which material is right for your application.
Q. Can I replace my existing CC buckets with the CC-MAX?
The CC-MAX is directly interchangeable with any plastic or metal CC elevator bucket. The unique difference is that the CC-MAX is designed to give you more capacity, and longer life.
