“Mike led another safe and productive session at our mine site! The scope of work was executed flawlessly around the clock to minimize downtime and in these financially trying times we never had to buy any material as he was able to use liners and pieces left over from last year’s box repair blitz. More than one person mentioned it would be nice if all contractors worked that professionally! Please pencil us in for next spring/summer for an audit and repair session. Hats off to Mike and his crew!”

Mining Engineering and Consulting Company, Canada – Two Piece Buckets and Wear Solutions

“With a great deal of success, we’ve employed The Bucket Shop Group for the past five years, to convert our full underground scoop bucket fleet to two-piece mechanical units. All our ST08’s, Toro’s, 700M’s and 6 yard buckets are all performing very well and have exceeded all expectation. Over the past five years, we’ve benefited greatly using The Bucket Shop’s two-piece system and would like to explain why,

Ease of front end change outs. A bucket can be made ready to go back to work once the lip is worn in under 3 hours. The savings in labour and down time alone has provided huge cost saving results.

We’ve complimented our bucket fleet with a suitable amount of spare front ends to ensure there’s always one available when the need arises. The Bucket Shop, having our best interest in mind have also made stock available to suit our interval needs.
Each front end is built up using their TBS range of lip castings. The TBS 1000 has delivered a 30% increase in service life and with continued design enhancement efforts, we expect to see even further life cycles.

To combat basket wear, we only use their TBS85 HiPER Heel castings. This attention to detail has enabled our company to benefit from having 3 – 4 front end change outs to one basket overhaul. The savings seen by having the right wear products on our buckets continues to be the driving factor in our success at reducing costs.

No charge delivery service, exceptional sales support and a complete understanding of our business needs, are also key indicators that support our claim that The Bucket Shop is the company to align with.”
