With our huge inventory of new, used and rental equipment, WesTrac has the right machine for the job.
Built for excavators and wheel loaders, the new Cat® Advansys™ tips are designed to deliver maximum productivity and reduce machine downtime.
A family-owned and operated business based in the Clarence Valley, McLennan’s Earthmoving specialises in earthmoving and civil construction.
The business was growing tired of unwanted servicing costs and saw the need to empower operators to facilitate machine upgrades on the go, so integrated the Cat Advansys tip and adapters into the fleet. There’s been no looking back.
Ben Warwick, Quarry Manager from McLennan Earthmovings’ Duncan’s Quarry said the ease of installation and removal of the tips was their main appeal.
“Our operators can turn the tips and move them from lesser worn locations on the bucket to a higher wear location mid-service with ease, thanks to the simple locking mechanism,” Ben said.
“Giving the operator the ability to change the tips also helps us reduce costs, as there is no need to bring in a specialist or wait for a service.”
The Advansys range assists in providing maximum flexibility and offers exclusive performance features including tapered tip sides that offer less drag and higher productivity.
The tips and adapters help to provide better penetration and durability for machines, while improving overall job site safety.
“Advansys is a hammerless system that helps keep our people safe as it reduces risk of injury,” Ben said. “Just a half turn with a breaker bar is all it needs.”
There is no need to order a separate retainer as the tips have increased wear material and an improved profile that also protects the adaptors from material flow, ensuring they last longer.
Built by Caterpillar® and readily adapted to fit any bucket in the industry, the Advansys tips and adapters extend the wear life of the overall system.
