Equipment Type

 Ground Engaging Tools


Liebherr has developed a new range of  Z-System ground-engaging tools to complement its mining-backhoe and face-shovel bucket design.

LEA’s staggered Multi-Ripper teeth function like trencher teeth, applying the excavator’s full breakout force on each tooth tip sequentially.

ESCO upgraded its Posilok bucket teeth, available to fit mining class hydraulic face shovels, excavators, draglines and cable shovels, with the safety of a hammerless locking device.

ESCO's new EverSharp lip system is cast in premium alloys for strength and designed with features intended to improve safety and performance. The Posilok Plus tooth system, with its hammerless locking device, is standard equipment, and shrouds are lighter for easier handling.
