Clamshell Buckets

Clamshell Buckets

Overview

DG2 (rope), DGM2 (electric-powered) and DG2-G, DGMg2 (hydraulic-powered) clamshell buckets are the ideal tools for handling loose material such as coal, sand, gravel or soil. The wide separation between the axes provide a wide opening and the buckets does practically not leave any 'left overs'. The widely positioned shell pivots ensure a good digging behaviour and high closing pressure.
