Clamshell Buckets with Vertical Cylinder for Excavator



The characteristics of the clamshell buckets with vertical cylinders:

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. 

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.

Product range:

The clamshell buckets with vertical cylinders are available for excavators with operating weights from 4t to 9t.
