Abrasion GussetsAbrasion Gussets protect the inside of your bucket from the constant abrasive cycling of material that occurs each time the bucket pushes into a new payload.
Edge StylesChoose from straight edge, spade nose or modified spade nose to match the site environment and material. Spade edges are designed for more aggressive digging and make a heavier bucket, while straight edge offers the least aggressive digging penetration and the lightest bucket weight.
Hard FacingACS will custom clad specific high-wear areas of your bucket with additional rows of layered alloys that are specifically designed to resist abrasion.
Weld-On EdgeAdd additional cladding to the point on your bucket that receives the most abrasive contact with a weld-on edge that matches your bucket edge. ACS can help you determine the best possible alloy to use for the weld-on edge based on your operating environment.
