Merit Filter Corporation also manufactures, and sells, a polyurethane bucket tip to bolt to the front edge of the utility tractor’s bucket. The bucket tip should always be affixed to the utility tractor’s front edge before dried sludge is removed from the Merit Filter Bed Media™. This insures the media does not get damaged and does not get abraded from the hardened wear edge of the utility tractor’s bucket.
