Challenge the conventional with XMOR® BHB bucket

This backhoe 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.


Available in: USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Mexico and Europe.


XMOR® BHB buckets are designed for 80-300 tonne machines.


Made to tackle abrasive conditions with small to medium rocks.


All buckets carry a Hardox® In My Body certification.

Game changing innovation

XMOR® BHB Buckets have several innovative and patented features that make the buckets more effective and durable. The Inverted Keel is one example. It offers less resistance in operation, better flow of material, and a more favorable distribution of stresses.

Maximized productivity

The XMOR® BHB provides a productivity increase of up to 20 % from higher payload without increasing suspended load on the excavator. This is equal to 15-30 % reduction of steel in the bucket.

The possibility to skip a class

Choosing an XMOR® BHB Bucket with innovative patented features and optimal Hardox® materials can often allow a machine to perform like a bigger class of machine.

Let’s take a common class 80 ton machine, it has a bucket capacity of around 7 yd3 and weights around 9000 lbs. It is loading common dry dirt.

Staying in the weight class, XMOR® BHB 80 could increase the capacity to 7.95 yd3 without stressing the machine with additional weight.

However, if the site conditions allow, XMOR® BHB 90 could increase the capacity to as much as 8-27 yd3. That’s 18% increase. Now the class 80 ton machine is performing like a class 90 ton.

Innovative features make all the difference

Inverted Keel

There are multiple advantages associated with this feature. Such as reduced resistance in operation, optimal material flow and distribution of stresses.

Curved Cutting Edge

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.

Corner Cavity

The corner cavity reduces the weight by avoiding the traditional doubling of material. The cavity is covered by our Mechanical Heel Shroud.

Mechanical Heel Shrouds

Being mechanically attached these reduce maintenance and downtime. Our Mechanical Heel Shroud covers the cavity.

Mechanical Wing Shrouds

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.

Angular Head Beam

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.

Keel Saddle

In more abrasive operations a little more protection is often required for the leading point of the Inverted Keel.

SSAB Products

All of this made possible by taking optimal advantage of the qualities of Hardox® wear plate and Strenx® performance steel from SSAB.
