Self-Priming Excavator Pump & Bucket

The EDDY Pump Powered Self-Priming Excavator Pump & Bucket is a new patented design that features all of the benefits of the EDDY Pump Excavator Pump Attachment within a traditional rugged excavator digging bucket.

Hawk Excavator is a proud distributor of Eddy Pump's Excavator Pump Attachments.

higher production

This design allows higher production in hard digging environments, utilizing the true digging power of the excavator and bucket teeth. This unit incorporates an EDDY Self Priming Slurry Pump into an excavator digging bucket along with mechanical agitators for high solids pumping while using the hydraulic power of your existing excavator.


We do not use 3rd party pumps as our competition does. These units can be powered by either electric or hydraulic, depending on your needs.

Easy fitting on smaller excavators

Easily fitting on smaller excavators, the Self Priming Excavator Pump & Bucket can pump up to 600 cubic yards of material per hour at distances of up to a mile using a 20-ton excavator! The pump and bucket are both built, designed, and patented by EDDY Pump. This ensures the perfect fit along with support from the same company.


The core of this design is the patented EDDY Pump technology. The design redefines the pumping industry by being the only pump that utilizes the principles of a tornado to create a synchronized eddy current. This pump is not a centrifugal, positive displacement or vortex pump, but instead the most efficient high solids and high specific gravity pump on the market. This translates to the ability to pump higher percent solids of material with less water.

All EDDY Pump Excavator Pump & Buckets are powered by our field-proven, USA Built, industrial self-prime slurry pumps.
