How to change the excavator bucket tooth

1. The teeth should be sharp.

2. The bucket teeth on both sides of the bucket are generally faster than the teeth in the middle of the bucket. When the teeth on both sides wear much shorter than the middle teeth, the position of the teeth on the middle and the sides can be interchanged and continue to be used. If the difference between the tooth at the center and the length of the tooth at both ends is 2 to 3 cm, it should be exchanged.

3. If the difference between the tooth length of the center part and the tooth length of both ends is 2~3 cm, it should be exchanged. Please replace the teeth in time.

4. Visually check the looseness and wear of the bucket teeth before daily work. If the bucket tooth wear exceeds the use limit, it will not only damage the tooth holder and the bucket, but also affect the efficiency of the excavation and reduce the output.

To change an excavator bucket tooth, follow these step-by-step instructions:

Safety First:

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), including gloves and safety glasses.

Place blocks or support under the bucket to ensure stability.
Identify the Tooth to be Replaced:

Gather Tools:

Depending on the type of excavator and bucket, you may need tools such as a wrench, socket set, and a pry bar.
Remove Retaining Pins:

Locate the retaining pins or bolts securing the tooth in place.
Use the appropriate tools to remove the pins.
Extract the Old Tooth:

Once the retaining pins are removed, use a pry bar or appropriate tool to extract the old tooth from the adapter.

Inspect the adapter (the part where the tooth attaches) for any debris or wear.
Clean the adapter thoroughly.
Install the New Tooth:

Align the new tooth with the adapter, ensuring it fits securely.
