Excavator Attachments

Hydraulic excavators are among the most productive and versatile machines on the job site. But they’re only as good as the buckets and attachments that turn power and force into productivity and profits. Hensley offers a complete line of buckets for hydraulic excavators. Standard and high capacity buckets are available, along with specialty buckets for specialized materials and applications.

TL Buckets feature flatter floors and are recommended trenching and loading applications in dirt, loam, sand, gravel, loose clay and abrasive soils with limited rock. They are manufactured with a high strength tube upper structure, two-piece blade, horizontal wear strips on the bottom and a side wear kick plate. The XS G.E.T. System comes standard. Optional sidecutters, strike-offs or weld-on vertical edge protectors are available.

HP Buckets are a dual taper, dual radius design that is well-suited to abrasive soils, compact or dense clay, loose rock and gravel. They feature a one-piece blade, side kick plate, full bottom wear plate and one-piece side plate. The formed beam upper structure delivers strength and durability right where it’s needed. The XS G.E.T. System comes standard. Optional sidecutters, strike-offs or weld-on vertical edge protectors are available.

HPS Buckets deliver a higher level of wear protection for abrasive soils, compact or dense clay, loose rock and gravel. Like HP Buckets, HPS feature a one-piece blade, side kick plate, full bottom wear plate and one-piece side plate, with a formed beam upper structure. The addition of horizontal wear strips on the bottom extends life in aggressively abrasive applications. The XS G.E.T. System comes standard. Optional sidecutters, strike-offs or weld-on vertical edge protectors are available.

HPX Buckets take a good thing and make it even better, delivering extreme-duty productivity and long life in shot rock, stratified materials, quarry work or any tough, highly abrasive application. Features like increased wear material, cast heel wear shrouds and XS G.E.T. System put the HPX in a class by itself.



HF Buckets is Hensley’s new HF series for 60 ton and larger hydraulic excavators. Flat bottom design beneficial for mass excavation / truck hauling application. Material type and material weight must be supplied to confirm bucket is suitable for application.
Model Designation

  • HFS: Heavy flat Strips – volume loading for packed ground, touch clay, loose dirt and some mixture of rock
  • HFP: Heavy Flat Plate – mass excavation , volume loading of same material as HFS plus, sandstone, most limestone and caliche, etc..
  • HFPS: Heavy Flat Plate & Strips – mass excavation, volume loading, a combination of HFS and HPS features. Bucket weight increased due to additional wear package. Capacity may be smaller depending on material type and density.

 

Specialty Buckets

The right bucket is the difference between just digging, and maximizing the power and versatility of your hydraulic excavator. Hensley engineers have answered the call with specialty buckets for most needs.

The Original "V" Bottom Bucket is designed with special teeth and adaptors to improve digging performance in limestone, caliche-type materials, fracturable materials and soils compacted by deep frost.

 

 

The Original Round Bottom Bucket is ideal for utility work and for laying large pipe. It features teeth specially engineered for maximum performance. The round bottom is well suited to work in limestone, caliche-type materials, fracturable materials and soils compacted by deep frost.

 

The Ditch Cleaning Bucket features a wide cut and shallow digging profile that is specifically engineered for ditch cleaning, loam and sand.

 

 

Hensley’s Coal Bucket features side-by-side replaceable teeth for ideal cutting force.

 

 

 

Bucket Protection and Accessories

Research and real world experience have guided Hensley engineers to develop a range of economical, easy-to-use bucket protection products and accessories.

  • Weld-On Bucket Shrouds—Protect corner edges on excavators, loaders, face shovels and LHD scoop tram buckets. They’re cast for superior wear protection, and extended life for your equipment.

  • Lip Shrouds—Without lop shrouds, the leading edge of the bucket is exposed to constant abrasive wear. Hensley has a wide range of universal lip shrouds available in weld-on, and J-bolts styles for virtually any machine.

  • Vertical Shrouds—Vertical shrouds protect the cheek plates of excavator buckets. Hensley offers a large selection of vertical shrouds with different styles and sizes to match a wide range of equipment. Proprietary systems are available to retrofit any bucket, with the convenience of a pin-on system. Universal weld-on shrouds and direct replacements are also available.

  • Sidecutters/Strike-Offs—Sidecutters protect the side plates of the bucket and add cutting width. Some accept combination plates for even greater width. Strike-offs protect bucket side plates and cut the same width as the bucket.

  • LAMINITE®—Laminite® delivers the ultimate protection against impact and high abrasion in some of the harshest conditions. The result: reduced maintenance and less downtime.

Excavator Attachments

Muroto Quick Couplers are multi-pin grabber units that pick up a variety of attachments including buckets, hammers, compaction wheels, rippers, and more for a wide range of excavators within the same weight class. Attachments can be easily changed within seconds from the operator’s seat without modifications which saves you time and money. Mechanical & hydraulic units are available to accommodate different applications and customer needs. For added security the hydraulic coupler has a double safety mechanism consisting of an automatic stopper lock and a pilot check valve while the mechanical unit has a lock plate to secure the adjustment bolt from loosening. With the versatility and safety features mentioned the Muroto Quick Coupler is the logical choice for all excavator customers.

Excavator Thumbs are an effective tool for a variety of material handling applications that substantially increases an excavator’s versatility. Several models are offered to better match the application including the mechanical weld-on, hydraulic direct pin, & hydraulic progressive link thumbs. Thumbs are composed of A514 (T1) steel and ideal for demolition work from grasping logs & brush to construction debris.
