Clamshell Buckets

MATERIAL MOVING MONSTERS OF ALL SIZES IMAGINABLE

Rotobec Clamshell Buckets set the industry benchmark for strength and durability. Our line of clamshells ranges in size from from 1.5 yd3 all the way up to a whopping 14 yd3 capacity. Within our lineup, we offer a variety of different series including: Light duty, medium duty and heavy duty, each of which has been designed to provide the maximum level of performance based on the type of material being handled.  When it comes to clamshell buckets, there is simply no other manufacturer capable of matching the toughness and versatility of a Rotobec.

quad-cylinder design for optimal PERFORMANCE

Our Clamshell Buckets come equipped with four Rotobec cylinders, each rated at 5,000 psi. The quad-cylinder design ensures the optimal force distribution on each corner of your bucket providing maximum loads each and every time.

Double the life of your bucket

BOLT-ON CUTTING EDGES

Our Clamshells are available with reversible bolt-on cutting edges, which literally doubles the life of your bucket’s edge. We also offer models with a level cut design for dredging application.

The king of rotators

WE’RE CALLED ROTO-BEC FOR A REASON

For the last 40 years, Rotobec has been pushing the boundaries of innovation in the world of rotator design. The rotators on our Clamshell Buckets are no exception. In addition to standard 3600 rotation and a fully supported pinion gear, all of our rotations are fully sealed, allowing them to be fully submersed in water up to 15 feet deep.

out-lift

The cylinders of our Clamshell Buckets are 100% designed, manufactured and assembled in-house. This allows us to guarantee that each cylinder meets the quality standards you deserve.  Our cylinders are rated at 5,000 PSI ensuring that you have all the closing force you could ever need.

out-perform

Our Clamshells are available with reversible BOLT-ON CUTTING EDGES, which literally doubles the life of your bucket’s edge. We also offer models with a LEVEL CUT DESIGN for dredging applications.

Where other manufacturers only use a high-tensile steel in small sections of the bucket, our Clamshell Buckets are fabricated almost entirely of HIGH-TENSILE STEEL, which will significantly extend the life of your bucket.

QUALITY COMPONENTS
