Re: Excavator pin size

I think most, if not all, 20-22t will be 80mm, probably getting near the 24-25t mark they will be 90mm, but not totally sure. I donít think there actually is an industry standard as such, but 80mm...

Yes Gra , Iím sure it is a twin steer, but itís still got a long wheelbase for a standard tractor unit and a big gap between the drive axle and the second steer....but itís obviously not a Ďstandardí...

Re: Lloyd star screening bucket

The star screen is meant to be better in wet material, iirc reading somewhere “effective screening in the wet”, or some such claim, but in all honesty if it’s wet, then it won’t screen properly....
