R-Lock improves safety, reduces downtime and increases productivity

R-Lock is a patented mechanical locking device for securing teeth, lip shrouds and wing shrouds on hydraulic excavators and face shovels.

The R-Lock locking device eliminates the need for hammers and allows the rapid removal and replacement of equipment, dramatically reducing downtime.


Improved bucket fill and cycle times

The slim profile design of the R-Lock system improves the efficiency of bucket penetration while at the same time maximizing lip and wing protection with fully covered leading edge shrouding.

The result is improved bucket fill and cycle times.

Improved safety

With the elimination of the need for hammers and oxy, and with its ease and simplicity of use, R-Lock improves the safety of maintenance staff.    

Applications of the R950 Series
