Clamshell Buckets with open shells for Crane
KM 605U HPX
The characteristics of the Clamshell Buckets with open shells for Crane:
The reliability of the revolutionary HPXdrive in combination with robust, versatile shells. Thanks to the drive system, the movement and closing force of the shells is constant and synchronized, generated by two hollow shafts, which run opposed and have a helix thread, hydraulically driven by a single piston. The HPXdrive is available as standard or heavy duty version.
But no matter the size: There a no hydraulic cylinders required anymore!
A longer life cycle of up to 50% and the integrated self-lubrication as the drive unit runs in a permanent oil bath are also featured by the drive, as well as the compact design, making the HPXdrive resistant to dirt and debris.
… by different types of available shells that can easily be refitted onto the unit.
The perfect alternative to cylinder-operated grapples that do not only save time and cost, but also facilitate every task.
The open shells of the bucket are ideal for handling and easy digging tasks and allow even the handling of bulky materials.
The Z-version is especially developed for the easy transport on Z-cranes.
This universal tool is available as daily routine or heavy duty version, each featuring the respective HPXdrive and shell exchange system.
The KM 605U is a robust universal tool for handling all kinds of refuse material. The open sides of the grapple enable the grab to handle bulk material. The compact design with a horizontal hydraulic cylinder achieves a maximum loading height. Long life is guaranteed due to the use of 500 HB steel in the manufacture of the cutting edges and a generously dimensioned bearing system. Reversible wear plates and welded hooks are delivered by default.
