Hardox® round bars improve efficiency and service life for skeleton buckets in demolition, recycling, landscaping and other industries

The German company HS Schoch now equips the majority of its skeleton buckets with Hardox® round steel bars. SSAB is the manufacturer of the well-known Hardox® wear plate, a through-hardened and tempered steel for high-strength, wear-resistant applications. SSAB has now extended its range of Hardox® steels with Hardox® round bars in a wide range of dimensions.
Compared to steel plates with a flame-cut sieve surface, these new round steel bars offer impressive benefits in skeleton buckets. Hardox® round steel bars are hard to the core and remain fully hardened even after the completed machining process.
Hardox® round bars are cut only to the length needed to manufacture the skeleton bucket. The heat input is minimized, leaving the steel’s hard and tough properties intact.
