The On Board Rock Duster Bucket is equipped with a built-in compartment to accommodate a rock dusting system supplied by TDT, LLC. Having an on-board rock duster bucket offers many benefits to mine operators, including easy compliance with new federal and state rock dusting regulations; ability to clean and spread rock dust in one trip without having to load a separate rock duster; greater visibility compared to a traditional scoop flinger rock dusting system; and elimination of the need to apply dust by hand. The rock duster compartment location is conveniently recessed behind the scoop bucket back plate and is designed to work with the TDT rock dusting system that includes a blower and large-capacity tank. To ensure maximum output and functionality, the enclosure contains guarding that prevents debris from entering the blower compartment.
