One of our projects through our Coalville works was to supply and fit full granite wear packages to three number caterpillar CAT 972M highlift buckets that were supplied through Finning UK for their machine sales to Aggregate Industries.

Aggregate Industries had agreed with Finning UK that the buckets were to have the complete wear package fitted by A J Specialist Welding due to the extensive knowledge and high quality of their chrome carbide plate which is manufactured at their Coalville workshop.

A full chrome carbide plate wear package extends a bucket’s life by up to 4 times the length of a standard un-plated bucket.

Advantages of chrome carbide wear plates include

  • reduced overall maintenance costs.
  • reduced downtime to improve equipment operation rate
  • reduce wear, extending buckets overall life span

A J Specialist Welding also offered Aggregate Industries an inspection and report so that they can keep on top of the wear to the attachments making sure that they have a minimum downtime and cost whilst any repairs are undertaken.
