Enter the bucket length (in), the bucket width (in), and the bucket height (in) into the Loader Bucket Capacity Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Loader Bucket Capacity. 

Loader Bucket Capacity Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Loader Bucket Capacity. 

LBC = L/12 * W/12*H/12


  • LBC is the Loader Bucket Capacity (ft^3)
  • L is the bucket length (in) 
  • W is the bucket width (in) 
  • H is the bucket height (in) 

How to Calculate Loader Bucket Capacity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Loader Bucket Capacity.

  1. First, determine the bucket length (in).
  2. Next, determine the bucket width (in). 
  3. Next, determine the bucket height (in). 
  4. Next, gather the formula from above = LBC = L/12 * W/12*H/12.
  5. Finally, calculate the Loader Bucket Capacity.
  6. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above. 

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

bucket length (in) = 25

bucket width (in) = 30

bucket height (in) = 15

LBC = L/12 * W/12*H/12 =  ?
