The clamshell buckets are the most appropriate attachments for bulk material loading. They are intended to handle sand, ground, gravel, cereals and debris. With minor modifications, BMO/P can be used for loading of scrap glass and for saltwater environments.
On BMO/P clamshell buckets the hydraulic circuit is well protected into the structure. The generously dimensioned cylinders, with a maximum working pressure of 300 BAR provide a relevant penetration force into the handled materials.
The clamshell buckets can all be fitted with digging teeth. They are made with high wear-resistant steel and supplied at the customer’s request. The number of demountable teeth depends on shells’ width, so it may vary from model to model.
BMO/P line clamshell buckets can be equipped with rotation devices, mechanical (mechanical rotation 250°) as well as hydraulic (continuous hydraulic motor 360°).The rotation devices are flanged directly on flat top of the buckets.
The extremely compact shape and the relevant structural resistance of two-cylinder clamshell buckets of the BMO/P line make them ideal for use on hydraulic excavators.The shape and the geometry of the shells grant a big capacity and easiness of filling, making them the most popular loading buckets for hydraulic excavators.
Clamshell buckets are made using high tensile strength steel (WELDOX – DOMEX) for structural parts and use wear plates (HARDOX) for parts in contact with the handled materials, such as the shells’ blades.Large diameter, induction hardened chrome pins and bushings are used in all grapple junction points.
The clamshell buckets must be mounted on operating machines through a cardan link that allows “pendulum” movement in the four horizontal directions. IDROBENNE can supply custom-made links for any operating machine on the market.
