Mako™ - The ulimate bite in bucket productivity

Large-scale underground mining operations put huge demands on both LHD buckets and GET. MakoTM is a next-generation lip protection system designed specifically for the toughest of mining conditions.

The 50mm MakoTM system’s optimised design and tougher materials boost bucket productivity by 40 per cent compared to predecessor GET systems. It delivers a 400-percent longer life than a bare lip.

New corner shrouds design

When corner and straight shrouds wear at different rates, additional maintenance stops may be required for half-life change-outs of corners. The wear rate for MakoTM corners and straight shrouds has been optimised to close to 1:1, meaning fewer maintenance stops and greater uptime.

New pin assembly

Save time and prevent injuries during change-out with Mako’s patented, single-cartridge locking and removal system. Each cartridge is pre-lubricated for simple installation. Enjoy quick and safe hammerless removal using a rattle gun (hex bolt 19mm o ¾”).

New cast corners

The corner is a high-stress zone on the bucket that faces an elevated risk of fatigue failure. Patented MakoTM cast corners have undergone structural improvements that make them resistant to fatigue, extending the life of the bucket lip.

New boss

MakoTM new weld-on boss system is easy to weld and replace.

Shroud lifting device

Shrouds are heavy objects, and worn shrouds in particular can be diffi cult to move due to the absence of lifting lugs. MakoTM shrouds lifting device, helps make your workshop safer for easy shrouds change-out.
