Lightweight Hydraulic Clamshell Bucket
Anvil Attachments’ lightweight hydraulic clamshell bucket, Model LWHC, is up to 1,200 pounds lighter than Anvil’s standard hydraulic bucket. This means you can move more material and less bucket. The lightweight model is ideal for coke, coal, grains, and other materials, which weigh less than 50 pounds per cubic foot. Model LWHC features four cylinders, which allow equal distribution of forces on the bucket while maintaining the closing forces of Anvil’s standard and heavy-weight hydraulic clamshell buckets. Options for the LWHC include bolt on reversible and replaceable edges, which protect the bowl bottoms from costly wear. For more, visit www.anvilattachments.com.
