Correctly installing your CAT J-series bucket teeth will maximise the digging performance of your earthmoving machinery and the lifespan of your teeth.
If your CAT bucket teeth are not installed correctly, you are likely to lose them during operation leading to costly maintenance and machinery downtime. And if a bucket tooth ends up going through a production plant, the costs can be huge.
Note: CAT J-series bucket teeth can be fitted to a wide range of earthmoving machinery, including Komatsu, Hitachi,JCB, Volvo and others.

Installing or removing your Caterpillar bucket teeth presents numerous hazards. As with any dangerous task, you must first perform a risk assessment to identify any hazards, assess the risks and implement risk control measures using the hierarchy of control.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) such as safety gloves, glasses, steel-capped boots, and a long- sleeve shirt are critical.
Also ensure a lockout procedure is followed so the machine cannot be started while maintenance is in progress. At a minimum, remove the keys, tape over the ignition switch, and place a sign on the dashboard reading: “MAINTENANCE IN PROGRESS – DO NOT OPERATE”.

Bucket Positioning: The bucket should be facing upwards with the teeth parallel to the ground. The bucket must also be empty so nothing can fall out while you are working on it. Also use jack stands and/or wooden blocks as a secondary bucket support measure to help prevent pinching or crushing incidents.
Pin Removal: Remove the existing CAT bucket teeth by using HCE’s pin removal tool (part number 7013). Hammer the pin removal tool into the pin from the side of the tooth with the retainer. Once the pin has been removed, the tooth can also be removed from the adapter.
