Clamshell Buckets with Exchangeable Shells


The KINSHOFER clamshell buckets of the C-VE series feature vertical cylinders and – more importantly – an integrated shell exchange system. While the main carrier – including shell carrier, hydraulics and bearings – remains the same, the shells can be exchanged within under 5 minutes by only one man without any hydraulic works necessary. The change mechanism is integrated into the robust shell bearing. The large variety of available shells ranges from daily work excavating shells via rock or timber tines up to more special versions such as well shaft shells or pipe grabs.

More special buckets are further available on request.

A long life is guaranteed for this flexible, robust tool thanks to the use of 500 HB steel in the manufacture of cutting edges. The generously dimensioned bearing system results in a reduced wear and further contributes to the long service life, as well as the piston rod protection for each cylinder.
Specialized versions of this series are not only available regarding the shells, but also regarding the entire tools, e.g. as rigid version, without rotator or adapted for the operation with a tiltrotator.
