G Series material processing buckets are designed for large carriers in material processing and mining. The first model released in the G Series is the 35-ton, heavy ALLU G 4-32 F with a payload of over 55 tons, which is designed for 300-ton front-shovel mining excavators. With the ALLU G 4-32 F, the excavator is used as a material processor, screening the ore of waste rock in mining cells at the same time that it loads the screened ore onto transport dump trucks. In many mining operations, the utilization of this method makes it possible to leave the majority of waste rock found in the ore at its original location in the mining cell, without the need to transport the waste. When the waste material or side rock can be left behind in the mining cell, the operation realizes savings in fuel, transportation equipment wear/tear, and equipment maintenance costs, the company says.
