How Do I Choose The Correct Bucket Teeth For My Excavator?

If you’re a new excavator operator, you may wonder how to choose the correct bucket teeth for your machine and the task ahead.

After all, these teeth make your excavator work, so you want to ensure you get the right fit.

This post will cover the basics of choosing the correct bucket teeth for your excavator.

What is a Bucket Tooth?

Bucket teeth are the points on the end of the bucket of your excavator. They are designed to dig and break up materials like dirt and rock. The tooth’s shape determines how well it will break up materials and how efficiently your excavator will work.

Choosing the Right Tooth

When choosing the right bucket tooth for your excavator, there are a few things to consider. First, it’s important to consider the type of material you’ll be excavating.

If you’re working in hard, rocky soil, you may want to choose a tooth with a sharper point. For softer ground, a less aggressive tooth may be more suitable.


Next, you’ll want to consider the durability of the tooth. Look for teeth that are manufactured from high-quality materials like hardened steel or carbide. These teeth will last longer and stand up to wear and tear better than cheaper materials.


Finally, you’ll want to make sure you choose the correct size tooth for your excavator. The tooth size should match the size of the bucket, so be sure to measure the bucket before purchasing teeth.
