Heavy Duty Digging Wheels

A heavy duty digging wheel featuring the industry’s largest diameter, segments, drivers, and truck assemblies. A larger wheel increases the carrying capacity of the wheel, provides more distance between the wheel and conveyor, and allows more time and distance for the dirt to exit the buckets and land on the conveyor, resulting in less carryover.

Advanced Cooling Systems

The machine cooling packages ofthe Buckeye 7340 are designed for severe-duty industrial applications, with variable speed and reversing fans providing efficiency and easy cleaning.

Operator-Friendly Cab
