Just as choosing Cat® buckets is an important step in preparing for a job, choosing the best bucket attachments is critical. The right Cat Advansys™ ground engaging tools (GET) can make a big difference for your hydraulic excavator.
Caterpillar offers a variety of ground engaging tools (GET) that can increase productivity for specific applications and protect buckets against wear on the job. These Cat® GET are groundbreaking — in every sense of the term.
But which GET are right for your specific job? How do you select the right tools, and what can you do to maximize the lifespan of your bucket and bucket attachments? Here are a few tips to help.
It’s important to select the correct GET for your job. Choosing incorrectly can have more negative consequences than you may think. The wrong GET can mean reduced fuel efficiency, reduced engine and power train life, and increased operator fatigue. Selecting the wrong GET or allowing them to exceed 100% wear can also increase the contact surface of your bucket, introducing more stress to the system. This increased resistance requires the machine to work harder, which results in more horsepower and fuel use, increased time taken to move the material, and inefficient contact.
Cat Advansys™ GET are designed for the toughest jobs, whether you’re digging into high-abrasion material or need bucket tips that can withstand high impact. Though your Cat dealer can help with GET selection that offers the right balance of penetration and wear for your job, here’s a quick look at the most common bucket tip options.
So you’ve selected the right GET for the job. How can you maximize the life of these bucket tips? Conduct a bucket walk-around to inspect your bucket and GET for wear. Here’s what to look for.
