Clamshell buckets for farming and agriculture.
The simple and cheap structure of horizontal cylinder clamshell buckets “BL line” makes them suitable for gardening, landscaping and agriculture machines. The design of the clamshells is very compact and makes the bucket very easy to fill.
Bulk material handling.
The clamshell buckets are the most appropriate attachments for bulk material loading. They are intended to handle sand, ground, gravel, cereals and debris. This line of buckets can be mounted on truck cranes, mini-excavators and small wheeled re-handlers.
BL line clamshell buckets can be equipped with rotation devices, such as mechanical rotation (250°) or continuous hydraulic motor (360°). This optional do enhance the versatility and the productivity of the whole equipment.
The safety valve comes as standard.
The shells of the attachments are set in motion by an hydraulic double-acting cylinder equipped with a safety locking valve.The opening and closing of the shells is synchronized.
The clamshell buckets are all set to mount digging teeth. They’re made with high wear-resistant steel and supplied under customer’s request. The number of demountable teeth depends on shells’ width, so it may vary from model to model.
Clamshell buckets are made using high tensile strength steel (WELDOX – DOMEX) for structural parts and using wear plates (HARDOX) for parts in contact with the handled materials, as the shells’ blades.
The clamshell buckets must be mounted on operating machines through a cardan link, that grants the “pendulum” movement in the four horizontal directions. IDROBENNE can supply custom-made links for any operating machine on the market.
