Bladed 12 Ton / 20 Ton Excavator Buckets
- 15 Jan, 2019
Due to popular demand Rhinox Group now stock bladed buckets for 12-15 ton excavators and for 20-25 ton excavators.
Why use a bladed bucket?
Many construction and groundwork sites are now requesting that buckets are not fitted with teeth to reduce the chance of a cable strike - often referred to as 'Gummy Buckets'.
Health & Safety teams believe that using a bucket without teeth reduces the chance of a catastrophic service strike, and in our independent testing we have verified this fact.
Housebuilders are also increasingly requesting that trenches for foundations have a flat floor to give the foundations greater integrity.
On smaller excavators, the buckets are normally fitted with Bolt-on bucket teeth, so it is not normally a problem to remove the teeth and fit a blade system.
Larger excavator buckets are typically fitted with a weld-on tooth and adapter system, which makes it much more difficult to create a bladed bucket.
What are the options for a bladed bucket on a 13 ton / 21 ton excavator?
Rhinox Group offer a heavy duty blade welded to the excavator teeth to create a bladed bucket. In addition to this we also fill the gaps between the teeth to prevent material spilling out from these gaps.
This creates a flat edge to the bucket, yet still retains the strength and wear resistance of the teeth, and in return the trenches remain square, and without teeth marks.
How quickly can we supply a bladed 13 / 21 ton excavator bucket?
In line with our commitment to excellent customer service, Rhinox Group have taken the decision to stock both bladed and toothed versions of our 13 ton and 21 ton excavator buckets available for immediate despatch, and Next Day delivery nationwide.
