Checking lifting capabilities for your excavator

There are generally two bucket profiles per module. The profile is selected as a function of the bucket radius and of the machine’s lifting capability.

The sizing of the accessory must also take into account the vehicle’s overturning limits and the nature of the material worked. Simply computing the total equipment weight (coupler weight + bucket weight + bucket load weight) will enable you to check that the accessory is compatible with the machine by comparing with the value in the load table as per ISO 10567, for your machine, in the following situations:

  • turret transversal,
  • lifting load at maximum range.

The total equipment weight, computed using ACB+ data, must be less than the value without bucket or fastener given in the manufacturer’s table*.
