Below are a few different types of ground engaging tools:
Bucket teeth adapters provide different levels of tip penetration into the soil. They work well on loaders, excavators, and scrapers to allow for a range of digging depths, and you can use them with both bolt-on bucket teeth and weld-on bucket teeth. They are instrumental in applications like mining, forestry, and construction that require powerful groundbreaking abilities.
- Cutter Bits
Cutter bits are useful for cutting during paving and demolition. You can choose different specifications to optimize this tool for the material you’re using, the depth of the cut, and your machine’s horsepower.
- Cutting Edges
Cutting edges are ideal for use with motor graders and scrapers. They come in different shapes, widths, and thicknesses, so you can tailor your choice to your unique grading and scraping requirements. They may be curved, with serrated edges to increase penetration capabilities into the soil, or they can be flat to reduce impact and abrasion.
- Dozer Blades
Dozer blades allow you to increase a bulldozer’s soil penetration and groundbreaking capabilities so it can move more material with less downtime. You can also use dozer blades with tools like end bits and cutting edges for more options.
- Side Bars and Edge Protectors
Side bars and edge protectors are useful on wheel loaders to guard against impact and reduce wear and tear. They help minimize machine damage and extend the machine’s lifespan.
Tips are indispensable on excavator buckets and wheel loaders because they offer increased strength and penetrative capabilities. They also absorb shocks to extend the machine’s lifespan.
- Wear Parts
Wear protection parts such as roll bars, wear buttons, and wear blocks protect a machine from wear and tear. They typically feature two bonded layers for maximum protective abilities.
