BUCKET FILL FACTORS

Fill Factor is the percentage of an available volume in a hauler body, bucket or bowl that is actually used.
For example, a fill factor of 87 percent for a hauler body means that 13 percent of the rated volume is not being used to carry material. Buckets often have fill factors over 100 percent.
