Make your bucket a game changer and gain:
Wear steel evolution has moved on, and Hardox® 500 Tuf is the proof. This high-performing wear steel from SSAB adds wear resistance and service life, plus it can perform as a structural steel. This allows for the design of both stronger and lighter tipper bodies.
Korean OEM ChangWoon is leveraging the performance potential of Hardox® 500 Tuf in its patented bucket design. They exclusively use this steel for both wear resistance and structural strength, increasing the bucket’s wear life by up to 4 times.
Swedish OEM Fronteq gains 8% in weight savings in their Granit buckets with Hardox® 500 Tuf. They reduced the plate thickness by 1 mm, saving welding time and costs and offering the contractor a lighter bucket with a potential for a higher load capacity.
A 13% lighter bucket can give up to 200 kg (440 lb.) more payload, adding productivity every day. It all comes down to the high hardness and superior toughness of Hardox® 500 Tuf.
