Keech Australia has introduced Keesharp, a bucket tooth that has been designed to get sharper with use, featuring a design providing a longer tooth life than previously seen in the market. The hammerless system is designed with a pin on either side of the tooth for a more balanced locking system.

The tooth and adapter absorb the force of digging, keeping the pins free of pressure for optimum performance. According to Keech, Keesharp has been rigorously tested and all models have been validated to match the breakout forces of the machines they’re designed for. Keesharp is available for machine sizes from 20 to 350 metric tons. It is claimed to be suitable for mining applications ranging from underground production and development to open-pit mining and digging.
