Why not bolt-on teeth? Ultimately, a two part tooth system offers greater versatility of tooth types, and also greater strength, since the adapters are welded to the bucket’s cutting edge.

Why bother with different types of tip? The notes above give some indication of this, but basically it is the best way to ensure tooth breakage/wearcosts are kept to a minimum, and to ensure you’re not wasting fuel by struggling to dig with blunt or incorrect teeth.

Which is the best tip? There is no ‘best’ tip, and tip choice is not an exact science, particularly in varying ground conditions. However, if you use the best compromise for your particular job, and review the criteria regularly, you can save a great deal of time and effort. Remember that tips may be swapped before they are worn out, and kept aside for future use.

What machines can they be used on? Basically, there is a size of tip and adapter to fit all excavators from 1.5 to 80 tonnes. Many machines are already fitted with this system, but if not, it is a relatively easy job to weld the adaptors onto the bucket edge and convert.

What if I want a flat edge? If you need to dig a flat base to a trench, you can weld a cutting edge accross a set of tips to form an ‘underblade’. These can be swapped for standard tips at any time, and re-fitted when you next need to use a straight edge.

CAT STYLE TIPS
The Caterpillar type side-pin tip and adapter system is a tried and tested formula, and offers wide choice of tip styles and exceptionally good value for money. Our ‘non-genuine’ equivalent to the CAT system is the most popular choice both on our new excavator buckets, and for customers repairing existing bucket, because as well as being very well priced, it is easily available worldwide, since you can also buy the (compatible) genuine article through us.
