TVH offers Cutting Edges to extend Bucket Life
TVH Americas (TVH), a global provider of quality replacement parts and accessories for the material handling and industrial equipment industries, now offers a selection of reversible, double-bevel, bolt-on cutting edges to help extend the life of light construction equipment buckets. Cutting edges are made with high-quality steel and come in an assortment of widths and lengths to accommodate a variety of bucket sizes. Bolt-on cutting edges offer many benefits, including:
- Reduced downtime – A bolt-on blade can be rotated or replaced in under an hour with basic hand tools.
- Twice the lifetime – A double-sided, or reversal, the blade can be rotated to give users essentially two blades in one.
- Less wear to the bucket – The blade also lifts the bottom up off the ground slightly, reducing the amount of drag and wear the bucket endures.
After a bolt-on cutting edge is selected and installed it’s important to take care of it. Here are some tips on how to get the most out of the blade once it’s installed.
- Rotate regularly – Users can choose to let one side wear down completely before reversing it, or they can rotate it regularly so that both sides wear down evenly.
- Use the correct bolts and nuts – It’s important to use high-quality bolts and nuts when attaching the blade. A grade 8 or higher is recommended. TVH carries a wide variety of nuts and bolts offering customers a one-stop-shopping experience.
- Check and tighten bolts regularly – Regularly checking the tightness of the bolts can prevent having to replace the blade unnecessarily early.
