ESCO Mining Hoe Buckets designed to deliver unsurpassed performance & durability

ESCO® buckets for mining excavators are custom engineered to match the required capacity and duty cycle for each application. Choose from standard or fully customized wear packages.

ESCO mining hoe buckets are performing at hundreds of locations on 6 continents. A proven performer that keeps machines operating with excellent reliability and significantly less maintenance.

Enhanced Productivity

  • Optimized payload by engineering to site material density while striking a balance between maintenance requirements versus capacity
  • Increased machine availability using high-strength steel fabricated to exacting specifications to reduce the chance of unplanned maintenance
  • Industry-leading Nemisys® lip system and GET provides unmatched reliability and service life with maximum weight efficiency

Reduced Maintenance

  • Enhanced beam shapes, configuration and weld-joint design using advanced finite element analysis (FEA) tools distributes operational stresses for increased durability
  • Lower maintenance costs by site tailored wear protection proven to lower GET cost of ownership overcompetitive systems
  • Fewer and faster wear parts replacement with the reliable Nemisys® GET that maximizes wear metal utilization with ESCO premium alloys and easy-to-use integral hammerless locks

ESCO HD Mining Class Hoe Bucket

ESCO HD buckets were developed as an economically viable product for tough mining applications - reducing customer investment while still providing excellent performance. The single beam configuration is reinforced with unique interior gussets and longer lug plates that provide optimum strength to eliminate deformation in demanding mining applications. Corner gussets reduce stresses in the transition from the beam to the side stiffener. The result is a bucket that provides excellent productivity and reliability in most mining applications.


ESCO XHD Mining Class Hoe Bucket

ESCO XHD Buckets are a dual-beam configuration designed for the toughest mining applications. This extra heavy-duty bucket has been used for years and is field-proven in mines and quarries worldwide. The XDPM bucket is the top choice for severe applications with extreme impact and abrasion. Complete wear protection options are also available to ensure maximum life and productivity. ESCO engineers provide expert technical support to ensure customers select the best wear package to maximize life and productivity in their application.
