Using Half Arrows to Protect Your Ground Engaging Tools
Half arrows are blades that are used on ground engaging machinery and equipment. They are used on the bucket and provide a certain level of wear and tear protection for the bucket, along with a few other protective components, such as sidebar protectors, side cutters, segments and top covers. If you want to extend the life of your ground engaging tools, ensure that half arrows are on your list of added components.
A strike off side cutter can also be used to protect the lower bucket sides and corners from wear, tear and damage. They feature a perfect half arrow shape and provide much better digging penetration than a bare bucket. These are, of course, only suitable for use in moderate-to-light duty working environments. These can actually be stacked onto the bucket and each other for added protection.
Half arrows are typically provided in bolt-on form and can be changed and replaced independently to its surrounding components which include top covers and bolt-on cutting edges. The half arrow’s main function is to cover the leading edge of the bucket for a smooth material transition.
Weld-on half arrows can also be used in order to customise a bucket. The use of these types of half arrows reduces scalloping and improves digging penetration. Regardless of what type of half arrow you invest in, the benefits for you and your equipment are quite simply astounding.
