Excavator hook for bolting

Make sure the bolting surface is plain. Ensure an appropriate bore depth to facilitate an optimal sitting of the engaging surface. Bolts should be tightened with a torque of 55 Nm.

When impact loaded or operated in environments with vibrations, unintentional loosening can happen, especially if through bolts with nuts are used.

Securing possibilities: Tighten the bolts with the specified torque and use a liquid thread securing medium eg. Loctite ( adapted to the respective requirements, follow the manufacturer´s recommendations)
