Sometimes, but buckets are changed out so often, that it is better to know how the tooth pins on to the adapter/shank whether it gets pinned on from the top or the side, and also what the inside pocket dimensions of the tooth are from side to side and top to bottom, often a picture helps as well.
To identify a Unitooth, we need to know the lip thickness of the bucket edge and the bolt hole spacing from center to center of both bolt holes.
When identifying cutting edges we need to know the make and model, the length, width and thickness of the cutting edge. We also need to know how many bolt holes there are and the size of the bolt hole. We also need to know the bolt hole spacing when measured from the edge of the cutting edge to the center of the first hole and the center to center measurements of the 1st hole to the 2nd hole and the 2nd hole to the 3rd hole.
To identify the correct sidecutter, we need to know the number of holes in the sidecutter, the bolt hole pattern, the bolt hole spacing and the size of the bolt hole.
No, you can go a little bigger with the size of your adapter, but not smaller.
A flushmount adapter is an adapter that does not have a bottom leg and just bolts or welds to the top of the bucket cutting edge. A flushmount adapter leaves the bottom of the bucket flat to provide a smooth surface.
Bolt on or Weld on Segments protect the exposed base edge between bucket teeth to eliminate scalloping. Rotate or reverse them to even out wear.
Bucket Teeth come in many sizes and configurations. Long Teeth provide more penetration where teeth breakage is not a problem. Short Teeth are for high impact work. Abrasion Teeth are very wear resistant and good for loading sand or gravel. Rock Penetration Teeth are best used in high abrasive material, such as silica, shale, sand, gravel, or mining operations that experience other styles of teeth wearing out quickly. Rock Chisel Teeth are best used in rock conditions, as the tooth continues to remain sharp throughout the life of the tooth. Tiger and Twin Tiger Teeth perform the best in frost, hardpan or rock conditions. These teeth will give you the best penetration and continue to stay sharp throughout the life of the tooth, but it also has the least amount of wear material so it’s life is short.
Excavator adapters have the long leg on the bottom of the bucket and loader adapters have the long leg on the top of the bucket, and often use flushmount adapters.
If the nose wears out on your adapter, then you can opt to replace just the nose rather than the whole adapter, the nose piece is a lot cheaper, but you have more labor involved in replacing just the nose.
Even one or two missing teeth reduce digging ability and speed base edge wear. When teeth are missing, adapters bear the full brunt and wear faster. Run cutting edges and teeth to their full service life, but not beyond.
Router bits protect scraper bowl corners. The standard bit is used for scrapers in low abrasion applications. Use heavy duty bits for larger scrapers working in highly abrasive conditions.
Ground Engaging Tools protect the more expensive iron, such as the base edge of buckets from wear, GET makes up a large part of a machine’s maintenance costs, though essentially throw away metal, you need to know what is available, most suitable for the job and how to obtain maximum wear life.
