Clamshell Buckets with vertical Cylinder for Crane


KM 603

The characteristics of the Clamshell Buckets with vertical Cylinder KM 603 and KM 607:

The KINSHOFER clamshell buckets with vertical cylinders …

… are available for daily routine works or as heavy duty version for difficult tasks. The closely positioned shell pivots ensure a good digging behaviour and high closing pressure. Cutting edges made of 500 HB steel and a generously dimensioned bearing system contribute to the longevity of the grapples.

The hydraulic cylinder of the daily routine version KM 603 is positioned inside the hub, lowering the risk of damages.

The cylinders of the heavy duty version KM 607 are protected by piston rod protections. 

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.
