Wear-resistant Segments and their role in Bucket Protection
The grounding engaging tools that you use are vitally important. Choosing the right ground engaging tools can make all of the difference when it comes to completing a project on time, efficiently, accurately and with no breakdowns along the way. Ground engaging tools often have bolt-on adaptors and segments to give them a modular versatility and to prolong the useful life of the equipment. Wear-resistant segments play an important role in protecting the base wear plate (which in turn protects the bucket) from excessive wear and tear. They also provide the necessary protection to the side and edges of buckets and work in conjunction with the side bar protectors, side cutters, half arrows and top covers.
At Tractor & Grader Supplies we supply the market with top quality ground engaging tools and various accessories and components to protect them and the GET equipment. Edge protection for the GET bucket is essential if you want to ensure that your investment has a long lifespan and useful service life. To protect your investment, you can ensure that your ongoing maintenance is kept simple with individual edge protection pieces that are easily changed as needed. You can also opt to use products that promote smooth material transition. Cut back on the cost of inventory by purchasing segments that are both wear-resistant and reversible.
We stock wear-resistant segments as well as a variety of other items especially designed for bucket and edge protection. Let us learn a little more about all of these items:
• Wear-resistant segments – these components are designed and optimised to function particularly well in medium-impact and medium-abrasion environments. The main function of a segment is to provide extra leading edge wear material to the bucket.
• Half arrows – half arrows that are welded on add extra material to the base edge and in this way protect the bucket structure. You can very conveniently also effectively use half arrows as bucket side bars or as a scalloping reducer by welding them between bucket teeth.
• Shrouds – these can be effectively used in high-abrasion environments. They are designed to provide base edge protection and they offer very quick replacement time.
Wear-resistant segments are useful on loaders, excavators, dozers, backhoes, motor graders, scrapers and in some other applications. The range available features the most recent designs and optimised shapes in order to offer greater performance and offer enough versatility to be used in a variety of different applications.
We stock the Titan range of wear-resistant segments. This range is synonymous with exceptional value for money, durability and strength. While these parts will need to be replaced at some point, you can expect exceptional performance from your ground engaging tools and we make the process easy for you.
