Ritespec Clamshell Buckets


The Ritespec 500 Clamshell Bucket is a premium quality attachment designed and built for PCM Handling, especially to suit the demands of the UK market, by one of Europe’s leading attachment manufacturers. The Ritespec 500 is intended primarily for use as an attachment for lorry loader cranes. It is designed to be used for the re-handling of excavated materials and aggregate.

The Ritespec bucket, with its reputation for excellent durability out in the field, has now become the bucket of choice for many UK grab operators.


The Benefits Of Ritespec 500 Clamshell Buckets:

  • High Closing Force
  • Reinforced Bucket Shells – to counter damage caused by large objects
  • High Tensile Construction
  • Fully Hardened Pins and Bushes Throughout
  • Twist Resistant
  • Dual Compensator Bars Protected by Heavy Steel Plate


Buckets Can Be Fitted With A Number Of Options:

  • Additional Bottom Cutting Edges – can be fitted from new or used for refurbishment purposes
  • Side Cutting Edges – can be fitted from new or used for refurbishment purposes.
  • Both cutting edge options come with nut and bolt kits included
  • Quick Change Hooks – with safety latches for the attachment of chains and slings


The PCM Quick Change hook is designed as an alternative to directly welded hooks commonly used on lorry-mounted re-handling grabs. The benefits of the method of attachment by a specified bolt/fixing kit include the immediate availability of grabs with or without hooks from stock.

Hooks can easily be retro-fitted and hooks can easily be removed.

Damaged hooks can quickly and easily be replaced if damaged without the need for site or workshop welding or area re-painting.

Buckets together with different fitting options are available from stock at our Northamptonshire warehouse for next-day delivery or immediate collection.
