New Doosan Severe-Duty Buckets Handle Abrasive Materials Without Sacrificing Performance

WEST FARGO, N.D. — Doosan introduces a new line of severe-duty buckets for crawler excavator customers needing a bucket that can handle abrasive materials in heavy digging and loading applications.

Doosan severe-duty buckets are approved for use with Doosan DX140LC-5 through DX530LC-5 crawler excavators. They are available in a pin-on or wedge-lock style. The severe-duty bucket sizes range from 18-inches wide for the smaller DX140LC-5, to 72-inches wide for larger Doosan excavators, such as the DX530LC-5. There are a variety of sizes and capacities in between, to best match the severe-duty bucket to the corresponding crawler excavator.

Abrasive-resistant material

Doosan severe-duty buckets are made with abrasive-resistant material for added protection and strength when digging in loose rock, or pit and quarry operations. The side cutters, shell bottom and side wear plates, and a weld-on wear shroud are made out of abrasive-resistant material. Reinforcing gussets have also been added to strengthen the machine-fitting joint on the bucket.

Wear pads

Front wear pads were added to the severe-duty buckets for extra protection from rocks and irregular materials.

Thicker cutting edge

Doosan excavator customers needing to easily dig through tough materials such as hard rock will appreciate a new, durable, abrasive-resistant cutting edge.

Rolled wear strap

Standard on the new Doosan severe-duty buckets is an abrasive-resistant wear strap.
