The KINSHOFER clamshell buckets with vertical cylinders are the ideal tools for earthwork and trenches. A good digging behaviour is guaranteed be the high closing pressure. Cutting edges made of 500 HB steel and a generously dimensioned bearing system contribute to the longevity of the grapples. The durable hydraulic cylinder is fully enclosed in the hub unit and thus well protected from blows.
For the excavation of foundations and graves, the C08F is equipped with a scraper.
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.
A wide range of accessories is available for all clamshell buckets.
