About Rehandling Clamshell Buckets

What are Clamshell Buckets?

Clamshell Buckets are designed for bulk lifting of coarse or fine grain materials. Manufactured from high tensile steel, and operating via the excavator’s built-in hydraulics, Re-Handling Clamshell Buckets have the strength and speed to move a large volume of material in a short space of time.

What Can Clamshell Buckets be used for? 

Clamshell Buckets can be used for ground construction work and material handling of industrial waste such as sand or grain etc. The side and bottom cutting edges also make pit digging a quick and easy process.

What are the benefits of Clamshell Buckets?
