As we all know, the excavator HD bucket is an important part of the excavator's working device. Except for some specific work occasions, the excavator HD bucket is the most used accessory of the excavator. However, compared with the main components such as the engine and hydraulic parts in the excavator, the simple structure of the excavator HD bucket often does not get too much attention from the users, so does the bucket really need no maintenance? The answer is naturally NO.
As the saying goes: "Workers must first sharpen their tools if they want to do their jobs well!" Not to mention that there are dozens of different types of buckets in the market for different working conditions. Just maintain your existing buckets. Can you increase construction efficiency and control construction costs, do you believe it?
Do not reinforce the excavator HD bucket blindly
In fact, many excavator users generally have misunderstandings about the bucket. Most people believe that the larger the excavator bucket, the higher the construction efficiency; the thicker and stronger the excavator bucket, the longer the service life, and then the excavator will dig The bucket is blindly reinforced. This approach is not accepted by the editor. If the bucket is protected in all directions, it will inevitably increase the weight of each bucket. A heavy bucket will not only increase the fuel consumption of the machine, but also overload operation will affect the life of the machine. It also has a considerable impact, and this little loss cannot be ignored. An expert once did a study: for every 0.5 ton increase in bucket weight, the cycle time increases by 10%, and the annual gross profit will decrease by 15%. In fact, under normal circumstances, the standard buckets provided by the manufacturer are all reasonably structured and designed, and they are fully qualified for general working conditions. If the conditions are really bad and need to be strengthened, then it is also recommended that you weld on the part that needs to be strengthened most, rather than the whole welding, and do not wrap the bucket of your love machine with thick armor.
To maintain the excavator HD bucket correctly, bucket teeth are the key
Bucket teeth are the terminal of the working device of excavators. In the process of excavation operations, the bucket teeth are the work components with the largest load and belong to the consumable parts. Especially in the stone construction environment, the bucket teeth wear very fast. The use of bucket teeth can actually directly affect the work efficiency and production cost of the excavator. Just imagine: when the tip part of the bucket teeth wears more severely, the excavator needs to cut in during digging operations. It will inevitably increase greatly, which will result in greater fuel consumption and affect work efficiency. Therefore, it is very necessary to replace the new bucket teeth in time when the wear of the bucket teeth is relatively serious.
Excavator HD bucket should also be checked daily
In the daily maintenance work of the excavator, if you can check the fuel, lubricating oil, water and air every day, you can reduce the machine failure by 70%. If you want to make your love machine better and more economical in your daily work, then spend 2 minutes every day to check the bucket. The main inspection contents are: the degree of wear of the excavator HD bucket body and whether there are cracks. If the degree of wear is severe, reinforcement should be considered. As for the bucket body with cracks, welding repairs should be carried out in time to avoid increasing the length of the cracks due to delayed repairs, resulting in unmaintainable situations. In addition, kick the bucket teeth with your feet to check whether the bucket ruler is stable. If the bucket teeth are loose, they should be tightened immediately.
