Clamshell Buckets with HPXdrive for Excavator

C05HPX Zweischalengreifer mit HPXdrive für Bagger


The characteristics of the clamshell buckets with HPXdrive for excavator:

The reliability of the revolutionary HPXdrive …

… in combination with robust, versatile excavating 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. 

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.

Versatility is granted 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.

A wide range of accessories, including scrapers, different mounting options and load hooks are available for all clamshell buckets.
