What better way to start a new year than with the install of a new bucket, and a market first for Bradken in Africa.
Fully designed and manufactured by us, this complete 28m3 CAT 6060 extra heavy duty hydraulic face shovel bucket is our first in service in North-West Africa.
Brad Ward, Executive General Manager of Bradken’s Mining Mobile Plant business said the installation on 1 January went according to plan.
“This was an exciting install for Bradken and especially our team in Africa,” Brad said.
“It’s the first complete face shovel bucket to be delivered by us into the West African market.
“As a site-specific custom build, the fitment of the bucket went smoothly.
“No additional work was required before it went into operation, much to the delight of our customer.”
Brad said the bucket included a number of design features that gave our customer peace of mind when putting a Bradken product to work on their site.
“This CAT 6060 shovel bucket features additional wear material including our Guardian wear blocks and D10 grader blades.
“These protect the underside of the bucket from the highly abrasive digging conditions on this site.
“The bucket is also completely interchangeable with Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts.
“Customers are able to buy this bucket knowing it will fit with their OEM backboards and jaw segments without issue.”
The quality and reliability of Bradken’s bucket design also means customers can better plan bucket changeout schedules, improving overall site productivity.
