MST has been appointed as the sole authorised UK supplier of the Viby range of high-tip buckets.

First manufactured in Denmark in the 1960s, Viby buckets are said to be renowned as high-quality loading equipment built to last. The buckets are built from full Hardox steel. The grade of steel has been optimised for durability against impact and wear, while being lightweight enough to reduce wear on the machine itself.

As well as having a distinctive shape, the bucket is designed with a view to optimising performance. As a result, weight is distributed further back, which reinforces the machine’s stability. All rams are cushioned, and components including rams, pins, pipes and bushes are OE quality.

Rory Whitehall, MST’s managing director, said: “At MST, we have a long history as a trusted supplier to OEDs and OEMs, as well as directly with large-scale users. They choose us because of our wealth of knowledge in hardwearing loading equipment. Ours is a niche industry where it’s important to speak to somebody who knows the machines and the parts.

“Since the Viby bucket can be designed for different manufacturers and machines, it is important that operators work with a supplier who has the time-served expertise to advise on the best fit for the application.”
