The Simple Solution to Your Steel Edge Problems
Sparks, Fires, Noise, Muck and Floor Wear – All Solved by Switching from Steel to Rubber Cutting Edges
SETCO’s compression molded rubber cutting edge is one continuous piece of rubber, which is bonded to a metal blade that bolts directly and easily to the bucket. This provides greater strength and increased life compared to other designs.
By using 100% natural rubber in the manufacturing process, SETCO ensures that there is no harmful steel cord body in the rubber blade that could damage the floor or cause sparks.
Further, SETCO’s rubber cutting edges clean the floor more effectively than steel edges, which keeps the floor drier.
SETCO’s rubber blades, therefore, not only protect the bucket, but the surface of the floor as well. This allows the SETCO rubber cutting edge to increase the floor life while effectively decreasing tyre spinning.
Rubber cutting edges are available for small and skid steer loaders, backhoes, and all makes and models of front end loaders.
SETCO offers three different taper options:
- No taper
The latter option makes the rubber edge reversible.
Our universal channel mounting mechanism allows the positioning of bolts in a channel for easy line-up with a bucket. This means that to determine the correct parts for a specific bucket, one needs only a simple tape measurement of the bucket width, the size of the current bolts and the quantity of holes in the bucket.
For those who desire a custom cutting edge for their bucket, such as bucket manufacturers, SETCO also manufactures a keyhole fitting mechanism instead of the universal channel. This design requires a precise drawing of the bucket to ensure the keyholes are place in the correct locations.
Rubber leveling pads, mounted at the rear of the bucket, allow the bucket to be operated at the proper angle. This minimizes the pressure of the rubber blade, which in turn increases the life of the rubber cutting edge. SETCO custom manufactures each leveling pad to a specific bucket.
Your local sales engineer can take all the necessary measurements for the rubber edges and leveling pads.
