BOLT ON EDGES
Edges are used on buckets to protect the bowl lips from wear. Bolt on Edges
These edges are reversible: when one side has worn down, the customer can unbolt them, flip them over, and use the other side. When that side is worn, the customer will have to order a new set.
Anvil uses Stover lock nuts to secure the edges. These nuts have proven to be the most secure and reliable. Once the customer unbolts these nuts, it is recommended to use a new set of nuts.
Teeth are used to help a bucket dig better. The teeth help the bucket penetrate the material.
Teeth come in three basics types Weld-on with replaceable points, Bolt-on, and Weld-on. The type Anvil uses on their bucket depends mostly on bucket style and some on customer preference. For example, it is not practical to use bolt on teeth on a Round Nose bucket due to the curve of the bowl.
*INCREASE PIN AND BUSHING LIFE UP TO 60% LONGER THAN STANDARD MATERIALS
- Astralloy Pins with 11-14% Hadfield Forged Manganese Bushings increases the overall life of the grab components. The lower wear rate will result in having to replace the parts less often. This will also reduce
the stresscracking due to flexure.
- The bushings will survive in harsher environments. A standard 4140 bushing when worn enough can crack in the right scenario, a manganese bushing will not exhibit this weakness.
- This upgrade option can increase the life of your parts by up to 50%.
- MANGANESE BUSHINGS
- Typical Hardness After Work Hardening: 500 Brinell / 52 Rockwell C
- Where Used: All rotating points except for sheave bushings
- Pros: Will
notbreak/crack, extensive wear properties keep this bushing in use far longer than 4140 bushings. ASTRALLOYPINS
- Yield Strength: 153,000 PSI [1,055 MPa]
- Tensile Strength: 175,000 PSI [1,207 MPa]
- Hardness: 320-380 Brinell / 34-41 Rockwell C
- Where Used: All pins, except sheave pins
- Pros: Upgraded steel for pins. Improved strength and wear properties overall compared to 4140
420 STAINLESS STEEL OVERLAYED PINS
- Typical Properties:
- Hardness: 500+ Brinell / 52+ Rockwell C
- Where Used: All pins except sheave pins
- Pros: Ultimate steel for pins. Incredibly high strength and wear properties, where these pins combined with manganese bushings can virtually run greaseless.
HARDWARE500 PLATE STEEL
- Tradename: “AR500”
- Typical Properties:
- Yield Strength: 200,000 PSI [1,379 MPa]
- Tensile Strength: 225,000 PSI [1,551 MPa]
- Hardness: 480-550 Brinell / 50-54 Rockwell C
- Where Used: lips, bowl bottoms, sides, wear pads, etc.
- Pros: AR500 has the best strength & wear properties when compared to other steels.
