The BHB buckets are targeting large size excavators where increased productivity in digging adds value to the process. The low weight of the buckets enable increased payload of 10–20% without increasing excavator suspended load.
There are multiple advantages associated with this feature. Such as reduced resistance in operation, optimal material flow and distribution of stresses.
The curved cutting edge moves the weld away from the area of highest stress, increasing structural integrity while accommodating natural flex to alleviate stress points. This also allows for a thinner cutting edge, so you cut into material easier.
The corner cavity reduces the weight by avoiding the traditional doubling of material. The cavity is covered by our Mechanical Heel Shroud.
Being mechanically attached these reduce maintenance and downtime. Our Mechanical Heel Shroud covers the cavity.
Attached with bolts, these Wing Shrouds are designed to fit the curved edge and protect the weld point of the cutting edge. They are reversible.
This provides structural support while still reducing the amount of steel used, which in turn reduces weight. The lack of a single horizontal channel allows optimal material flow, opening the mouth wider to accept material easier.
In more abrasive operations a little more protection is often required for the leading point of the Inverted Keel.
All of this made possible by taking optimal advantage of the qualities of Hardox® wear plate and Strenx® performance steel from SSAB.
The XMOR® BHB series is suitable for densities up to 3030 pounds per cubic yard (1800 kg per cubic meter). Works in coal, sand and gravel, shot rock up to 20 inches (0.5 m) and other loose material applications. Not suitable for pushing large boulders, pulling toes/footings left from the blast and smashing rocks. Not intended for use with a coupler (Quick Hitch).
