Matching the correct tooth to your application can significantly reduce wear rates and increase ease of digging.  This results in faster cycle time, less fuel consumption and reduced downtime.


Rotating your bucket teeth can help you determine wear patterns and increase productivity. Teeth located closer to the bucket corner often wear down faster. If your bucket is loaded on an angle regularly, then teeth will wear quicker on the leadingside.


Tungsten Coating is a protective covering on wear surfaces that dramatically reduces erosion, abrasion and corrosion. It can be used for a number of applications, including high abrasion and moderate impact uses. Having this coating on your bucket teeth and other wear parts can have a big impact on operational costs by lasting longer and increasing productivity of your machine.
