The Bucket List
Komatsu America Corp.
Komatsu says its KMAX System Teeth feature the patented G.E.T. system designed for maximum consumption ratios and strength, without unnecessary bulk. The shape of the teeth is said to promote smooth flow of material over the tooth-adapter for even, consistent wear. The teeth are reversible for extended life and feature a simple, functional, reusable fastener that can be unlocked with just a 90-degree turn of a socket for quick change-out.
Leading Edge Attachments, Inc.
Leading Edge Attachments says its patented Multi-Ripper Tooth — designed for excavators and backhoes — allows the operator to easily rip rock, coral shale, caliche, decomposed granite, limestone, sandstone, asphalt, or frozen ground with maximum breakout force. The operator is said to be able to focus the excavator’s full breakout force individually to each point of the special twin tiger tooth, thus greatly improving the ripping effect.
