At World of Concrete 2016, we got a look at Geith’s heavy-duty buckets, designed for use with excavators weighing between 8 and 75 tons. They are ideal for more demanding excavation applications involving soil, dirt and gravel. Available in a variety of sizes, Geith heavy-duty buckets weigh between 824 and 9,548 pounds, with the largest model boasting a heaped capacity of 5-1/2 cubic yards.
Standard features include heavy-duty bottom wear straps and a unique diamond-folded top section that provides greater structural strength and wear protection. The bucket’s dual radius shape increases heel clearance, further reducing drag and wear while abrasion resistant material increases reinforcements in critical areas for maximum durability. Optional bolt-on wear shrouds are available, as well. In addition, the Geith heavy-duty bucket design features a deep profile for high capacity and a low tip radius for greater digging power.
Ensure optimum bucket rotation and digging power with the use of a Geith quick coupler. Manufactured using high-strength steel, the proven hydraulic quick coupler system enables operators to safely and efficiently change between a variety of attachments from the comfort of their cabs.
