Match Bucket Teeth with Ground Engaging Tool

Date:22-12-2016

As you know before, a good quality bucket teeth offers increased productivity, reduced downtime, lower operating costs and optimal safety.

Although machines come fitted with a ground engaging tool system, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best system for your application. To get the most out of your ground engaging tools, it’s important to assess their quality and compatibility.

Generally, the right sized bucket tooth and adapter for the machine depends on the breakout force or ‘grunt’ of the machine. The breakout force varies anywhere from 80 kN up to 2,000 kN, depending on the size of the machine.

Furthermore, the bucket tooth points attached to the bucket can extend the working life of the ground engaging tool system. It’s important that your bucket tooth points match your working conditions, because they are exposed to hard materials, shocks and strong breakout forces.

If you know that you are digging in very hard material, a larger ground engaging tool is definitely best suited. Even though a smaller sized ground engaging tool might be specified for your material, a larger size can minimize breakage issues and downtime, largely increase your working efficiency.

What’s more, it is important to monitor the wear rates of your ground engaging tool and seek the best options to extend their operating life. And when they do need replacing, having replacement ground engaging tool components on hand will reduce downtime and optimize productivity.

As an experienced manufacturer, all Xinke’s bucket teeth and bucket adapters have been manufactured to a specification that balances weight, working wear life, and effective energy efficiency. Over each work cycle, these factors will minimize the power required by the machine as a ratio of the total workload and cost per ton of productivity.
