Maximum Productivity Meets Hammerless Retention

Caterpillar offers drive through and hammerless options for vertical retention.
  • K80-K100 Size = Drive Through Retainer
  • K110-K170 Size = Hammerless Retainer

  • Improve your productivity - Low-profile shape provides optimal sharpness, penetration and digging ability throughout the tip life.
  • Extend life - More wear material can effectively be used before the tips are changed, adding 10-15% more usable life.
  • Increase durability - The tip and adapter fit together precisely to reduce tip movement and adapter wear.
  • Stay safe & reduce maintenance costs - One-piece vertical retainer allows for hammerless installation and removal, with only standard, low-force tools needed.
  • Simplify installation - Rails on both sides of the adapter and twist-on design hold the tip in place allowing for quicker installation.
