Esco Blades and End Bits
November 25, 2008

Esco developed All-Cast ground engaging tools (GET) for dozers. Available for most popular CAT and Komatsu models above 280 HP, All-Cast ground engaging tools (GET) are specifically designed to match each model’s requirements and ensure optimum performance. Unlike rolled steel versions where bolt holes and bevels are machined in, Esco casts its blades and end bits to shape when the metal is poured. The casting process allows Esco engineers to use through-hardening steel alloys and put the steel where it is needed. The metal is cast where it is needed, reducing throwaway and lowering operating costs. Esco alloy 12S, a 514 BHN steel provides greater hardness, with unmatched resistance to impact and abrasion. Longer wear life reduces maintenance and increases production. Reduced chance of breakage keeps machines operating.
