Skid steer bucket teeth keep you engaging with the ground at maximum effectiveness. There are different types of bucket teeth for different jobs.
What are the right bucket teeth for you?
The standard bucket teeth are designed to be general purpose, general duty bucket teeth for a wide variety of applications.
Rock chisel bucket teeth are best for use on hard ground and rock. The rock chisel has a sharper tip than the standard bucket tooth to increase ground penetration.
Tiger Tooth Tip
Tiger bucket teeth are the sharpest at the point to maximize the bucket's ability to penetrate hard pan or frosted surfaces.
Twin Tiger Tip
The twin tiger looks like the tiger tip but with split ends, increasing its ability to penetrate hard surfaces. Wear on the tiger bucket teeth is very high and needs to be replaced more often.
Flare tipped bucket teeth have maximum surface area at the tip to maintain smooth trench floors.
How do you reduce the wear on bucket teeth?
Matching the bucket tooth to its application can significantly reduce wear. Rotating your bucket teeth cuts down on the wear as well since the bucket teeth closer to the edge of the bucket endure more wear than the bucket teeth in the center of the bucket.
What are bucket teeth made of?
Bucket teeth can come in two forms: forged steel or cast iron.
Forged steel teeth are manufactured with heat treated alloy steel in order to extend the wear life of the bucket tooth. Forged teeth typically have limited shapes and come at a premium price.
Cast iron bucket teeth are also heat treated but are significantly lighter weight than the forged steel alternative. They don't last quite as long as their forged steel counterpart but they are far less expensive which makes them a more economical choice.
