MAK-Edge Protectors

MAK-Edge protectors are a low weight alternative to traditional heel shrouds on excavator buckets.

The stepped backing plates allow for the blocks to clear overlapping plates on bucket corners. They are generally less than half of the weight of many heel shrouds and can often outlast them by 3-4x. The mild steel backing drastically improves the toughness of the components, while the plug-welded connections improves fastening strength.

This flexibility also allows MAK-Edge protectors to be utilised in areas where standard blocks won’t fit due to overlapping plates or other obstructions.

Available in standard, heavy and light configurations, with customised designs available on request.
