Use your Equipment in the right way to Prolong Their Lifespan
In the construction industry, ground engaging tools are of vital importance and selecting the right ground engaging end bits is just as important. Of course, just like everything else, ground engaging end bits will only last if they are used as directed and also maintained as stipulated by the manufacturer. Prolonging the lifespan of these ground engaging tools and components will ensure that the equipment does not sustain exessive and expensive wear and tear that requires repair and parts replacement. Following the correct operating procedures can really make all of the difference. Here is how to do things right as far as your end bits are concerned.
Ground engaging end bits play a fairly dominant role on dozers. Using the dozer correctly can spare the end bit no end and add exponentially to its useful service life. The shank should be rotated rearwards if you want maximum ground penetration. This is how you should start: As the dozer blade fills up, make sure that you avoid rolling the material by positioning the blade back. While tilting it back, lift it up to minimise potential wear and tear on ground engaging tools and any attached hardware. To prevent undue stress and excessive wear and tear on the ground engaging end bits, keep corner loading to an absolute minimum.
It is also vitally important that the heavy duty ground engaging equipment is checked regularly for wear, tear and damage. Any noticeable wear must be attended to immediately. End bits and tips should be replaced as soon as they are worn and it is best to rotate tips and cutting edges to ensure that wear does not happen in the same place consistently and cause further problems.

They are manufactured from only the finest quality materials and while they are designed to be durable, it is still essential to choose the correct end bits for the equipment and application at hand.
