In this blog post, we'll delve into the key features of the Rhinox tilt grading bucket, helping you make an informed decision about whether it's the ideal choice for your specific needs. Whether you're a seasoned professional or a newcomer to the world of heavy machinery, this overview will help you understand the advantages that this attachment brings to the table.
Tilt Grading Bucket Features that make Rhinox Stand Out
Bucket Sizes Available
Whether you're grading off a bank, finishing a yard or even carving out a golf course, Rhinox has got you covered with our range of tilt grading buckets, that cater to a wide range of applications. Available for excavators ranging from 0.5 tons to 8 tons and offered in both 36" and 48" widths (depending on what is properly specked for your machine). What sets Rhinox apart is the dedication to compatibility – these buckets come with options for standard 2-pin hangers, Bobcat X-Change, Kubota Quick Attach, and Deere Wedgelock, ensuring a seamless fit with your excavator.
Heavy Duty Construction
The Rhinox tilt bucket is renowned for its heavy-duty, durable construction, with this reputation being owned by the engineering of its wear plates, reinforced leading edge, and robust center web. The wear plates and reinforced leading edge are strategically designed to add an additional layer of protection to the high impact areas of the bucket, ensuring its longevity even when grading harsh materials. The robust center web reinforces the bucket's core, providing exceptional strength and stability, ensuring the structural integrity of the bucket remains unharmed. This makes the Rhinox tilt grading bucket an essential attachment for any landscaper.
Although the Rhinox tilt grading bucket is made with a heavy duty construction to withstand wear over time, this doesn't detract from the fact that this bucket is NOT designed for harsh digging or demolition work. If you chose to use the bucket in this way, you will likely damage your hydraulics and tilting function leaving your bucket with an expensive repair job.
The benefit of the Rhinox tilt grading bucket is the ability to tilt the bucket 45 degrees left and right, allowing the operator to work on slopes and uneven terrain more efficiently. This function is accomplished by the inbuilt RAMs, which work with the hydraulics to tilt the bucket. All excavators up to 3 ton are manufactured with a single RAM, and from upwards of 3 ton, the Rhinox tilt grader is manufactured with a dual RAM mechanism to give you the greatest flexibility so you can get the right angle for your finishing job.
Hydraulics & Hoses
Working alongside the RAMs are the hydraulics and hydraulic hoses. The Rhinox tilt grading bucket connects to the same hydraulic connections as a standard excavator thumb making it quick and easy to fit when ready to use. All Rhinox tilt grading buckets come fitted with the hydraulic hoses that connect the RAM to the headstock, however we do not provide the hoses required to connect the headstock to the excavator arm. Every excavator has different hose requirements, so you will need to source the necessary hydraulic hoses for your machine make and model from your local hydraulics specialist.
Lip Plate & Bolt-on Wear Blade
Similarly to your standard grading bucket, the lip plate of your tilt grading bucket will wear down over time. To help slow this wear and extend the lifetime of your bucket, the Rhinox tilt grading bucket comes fit with a replaceable bolt-on wear blade as standard. A wear blade is designed to protect your lip plate from wearing back, in turn protecting your bucket welds. Once one side of your bolt-on blade has worn back in line with the edge of your bucket, you can remove it, spin it round and refit it to continue the wear protection.
As with all Rhinox excavator buckets and attachments, our tilt grading bucket comes fitted with an identification data plate. This plate is usually located on the top of the bucket, around the hangers, and provides you with the weight of the attachment and the capacity to give you confidence that you have the right attachment for your machine and allows you to work within your machine specifications.
In conclusion, the Rhinox tilt grading bucket truly stands out. Its innovative design, featuring a RAM that tilts 45 degrees in both directions, provides unmatched accuracy and precision, making it an invaluable tool for any job site. With added wear protection, it ensures a longer lifespan, saving you time and money in the long run. And the inclusion of a data plate further demonstrates Rhinox's commitment to longevity. For those seeking superior performance and durability in their attachments, the Rhinox tilt grading bucket is a great choice.
