Under normal circumstances, the side knife, bottom plate, side plate, and tooth root of the bucket are the places with relatively large wear. Therefore, when the degree of wear of these places is regularly observed, these places should be strengthened.

Tooth root strengthening: The tooth root mounting plate has been strengthened very well. In the daily work of the excavator, due to poor strengthening, severe wear will occur at the tooth root, and the bucket teeth will not be able to be installed for a long time. For the reinforcement here, two solutions can be adopted, one is to attach reinforcing ribs, and the other is to pack wear-resistant blocks. It should be noted that the method of attaching reinforcing ribs is simple and economical, but when welding, be careful not to overlap the welding seam of the tooth root, which will affect the welding strength of the tooth root.

Side boards and side edges are strengthened: The violent wear of the side boards will reduce the effective bucket capacity of the bucket and affect productivity. At the same time, the side knife also has the effect of cutting into the material and protecting the side board, so the bucket needs to be equipped with a side knife. Since the side is not a high wear area, the reinforcement of the side should not be too strong, so as not to affect the overall weight of the bucket.

Bottom plate reinforcement: The bottom plate is the area with serious wear and tear, and it is also very strong. The reinforcement ribs of the bottom plate should be made of hard, wear-resistant long plates as raw materials. The overall shape of the bucket should be protected to avoid affecting the cutting angle and affecting Capacity. Many customers choose discarded chain plates as reinforcement materials. Personally think it is better. It should be noted that the welding of the ribs should follow the welding direction of the original machine ribs and overlap the two plates.

Good operating habits can also extend the life of the bucket

Let's take soil excavation as an example here. Excavation is the main job of an excavator. There are also many skills when driving an excavator to dig soil, which can directly affect the efficiency of the work. When digging the soil, the stick cylinder is the main and the boom cylinder is the auxiliary. The angle of the bucket teeth should be adjusted according to the travel trajectory of the stick. The teeth of the bucket should be "dipped" into the soil like a knife cuts vegetables, rather than "slapped" into the soil. When it reaches the depth, complete the hook and raise the arm. It's just a digging action.

In summary, the correct method must be mastered to reinforce the bucket. Good steel is used. Do not weld the reinforcing plate randomly, otherwise it will be too much. Some precautions about bucket strengthening are introduced here first, and I hope it will be of reference significance for everyone.
