Easier teeth


Komatsu has developed an excavator tooth system featuring a reusable lock that does not require conventional installation with a hammer. The Kmax system allows the patented locking pin to be reused when the teeth need replacing. It is fitted by pushing the pin into position then turning the mechanism 90 deg to keep the tooth in place.
