SANDVIK MECHANICAL G.E.T

Our offering includes modular lip and heel shrouds that can be easily removed and replaced as the need arises. These are systems that will offer you a longer service life for your buckets while increasing your productivity and reducing downtime.

The total package consists of:

  • Mako or Bluepointer, our two mechanically attached lip shrouds provide a quick change innovative wear solution, allowing for quicker and easier change outs, and eliminating the need for hot work when changing the mechanical G.E.T. Unlike conventional systems, Sandvik G.E.T.'s adjustable locking system can be re-tensioned easily and safely to minimize the destructive lip peening often experienced with loose fitting shrouds. This is achieved by tightening the rear cap screw – making the placement of the boss much less critical and providing a quick and cost-effective solution.
  • Sandvik's patented mechanical Heel Shrouds are designed to protect the bottom and outer heel of the bucket during loading. The system enables heel shrouds to be changed out without gouging or welding. Made from proven SS3000 material for superior wear life, our mechanical Heel Shrouds are quicker and safer to change out – resulting in less downtime and fewer bucket repairs
