Certainly, bucket teeth are among the most sought after and worn components of an excavator or loader. But also one of the main factors that determine the efficiency of the machine from several points of view: speed in operation, fuel consumption, operator demand, possible losses caused by the immobilization of the equipment.
Excessive wear of bucket teeth turns into a lack of productivity, and their replacement with new ones should be done as soon as possible. However, there are cases in which a tooth breaks, due to various factors, the most common being wear. Also, the quality of the tooth has a major influence, which ultimately affects the cost of operation.
Operators often prefer lower quality teeth for immediate investment, but their reliability and efficiency ultimately lead to more frequent downtime of the machine because they need to be changed more often, repeated investments, operating difficulties and even incompatibility with the system. cup holder.
In our range of teeth we offer solutions for any type of excavator (bulldozer or mini), loaders and heavy applications, for tonnages from 5 t to 125 t. Depending on the bucket and / or equipment, there are two main clamping systems, with vertical or horizontal bolt. In the case of the first solution, the assembly / disassembly operation benefits from a larger maneuvering space, considering that vertically there are no elements that could physically interfere with the tools used to remove the bolt.
The teeth are also classified according to the material in which they are dug and which can be earth, gravel, sand, stone, drilling mud, limestone. We can also have impact, penetration or abrasive stresses, and the shape of the teeth varies from sharp type – with one or two tips – to short type, V shaped, heavy duty and so on.
From this point of view, the identification and choice of the tooth must be done correctly, in order to have the 100% suitable product. This operation can be performed both by the operator, but also with our sales advisor, by phone or even at the machine, if necessary.
Measurements must be made carefully, noting the main dimensions of the tooth: length, height, width of the tip, the base, the diameters of the holes for the bolt, the distance between the holes, if there are more, the internal dimensions if it is a model of this kind. .
With these measurements, along with the type of machine and the application for which the teeth are used, you can choose the correct model, which can be ordered in the store or, if additional information is needed, you can call our advisors.
