The KINSHOFER clamshell buckets with vertical cylinders are available for daily routine works or as heavy duty version for difficult tasks. The closely positioned shell pivots ensure a good digging behaviour and high closing pressure. Cutting edges made of 500 HB steel and a generously dimensioned bearing system contribute to the longevity of the grapples.
The daily routine version (KM 603) is also available including a scraper (F-version) or featuring round shells (R-version). The hydraulic cylinder is positioned inside the hub, lowering the risk of damages.
The cylinders of the heavy duty version (KM 607) are protected by piston rod protections.
Bolt-on digging teeth can easily be exchanged if required.
Alternatively to the clamshell buckets with vertical cylinder, a clamshell bucket with HPXdrive can be used with an extension for excavating.
