If you’re digging or moving material, bucket teeth are critical to effective excavator or loader performance. Sharp bucket teeth boost operational efficiency while reducing stress on your equipment, resulting in longer machine life and lower maintenance costs.
But keeping bucket teeth sharp and functioning properly is not always easy to do. They are some of the most easily damaged and most often replaced parts on excavators and wheel loaders, because they can break and wear prematurely. It’s important to inspect your bucket at the beginning of each shift to check for missing or excessively worn teeth, cracks, and any exposed shanks. Missing, worn, or damaged teeth will hinder digging performance and could lead to damage to the shanks or bucket itself.
Note: Make sure you are wearing your safety gloves when attaching replacement bucket teeth.
Replacement bucket teeth will allow the excavator and loader to dig deeper and excavate more efficiently, even under challenging conditions.
