SMP Norway has specially designed a bucket for use on heavy machines as part of a production optimisation of bigger buckets. AF Anlegg has been testing it to see if it can be classed as a ’super bucket’. The goal is to have buckets for the heavier class of excavators, that are easy to use, highly durable and enable high productivity.
AF Anlegg will now test the ‘super bucket’ for 1600 hours on a 50 tonne Volvo EC480D, that is working on a road tunnel construction.
