ESCO upgraded its Posilok Plus bucket teeth, available to fit mining-class shovels, excavators, and draglines, with the safety of a hammerless locking device. Torque Wedge pin screws turn in clockwise to lock, with what ESCO says is “minimal manual effort.” A plug keeps fines from building up in the pin recess. Tooth changes are performed with a standard-sized hex tool. Optional wear caps provide additional protection for the adapter.
