FOR more than 40 years, Jaws has built a reputation on supplying buckets for a range of excavators, shovels and loaders. As a result, Jaws has become a leading supplier to mining companies across Australia and around the world.
Through its accumulated experience, Jaws has evolved to become a leading supplier to original equipment manufacturers and mining operators. It provides replacement and custom-made buckets to suit a range of conditions.
The company’s custom designed buckets are manufactured to match the material being worked, as well as the capacity of each client’s trucking operation.
This reduces truck loading times and overall turnaround times. For example, if a client’s existing bucket has taken 4.5 loads to fill a truck, a Jaws custom-made bucket that fills the truck in 4 loads could make major contributions towards cost reductions. Jaws recognises the importance of the design and shape of buckets to deal with particular soil and clay types. For example, puggy clays are the cause of hang-up problems, so the company has developed a number of designs for difficult mine sites and the elimination of hang-up.
The company also provides a number of other products for mine sites, including truck bodies, service modules, water tankers, low loaders, and tyre handlers.
