BATEMAN is proud to manufacture both hydraulic and self-contained diesel clamshell buckets for coal handling. The best solution for re-handling and digging, BATEMAN clamshell buckets help streamline processes. Its hydraulic clamshell buckets are available in light, medium, and heavy-duty configurations with either open or closed back designs. All clamshell buckets come equipped with BATEMAN’s severe-duty rotator with continuous 360° rotation and internal hydraulic relief.
BATEMAN rotators also feature fully sealed moving parts for submersion in water. Customers that are looking for something specific are welcomed, and invited to work with BATEMAN’s team to design a custom bucket that is just right for their specific needs.
BATEMAN’s major clients include those in the waterway dredging, road salt, wood chip, and coal handling industries, as well as many more. In order to better serve its customers, BATEMAN also offers installation and support services, when needed, for all attachment purchases. The BATEMAN team additionally offers personalized and customized on-site installation services and training so that users and their teams can safely and properly operate their new handling equipment.
BATEMAN’s team also provides repair and refurbishment services for existing handling equipment — whether the original is BATEMAN brand or not — with remarkable efficiency. BATEMAN has an on-the-road service team that can repair  customers’ handling equipment, magnets, or generators. Its service team specializes in solving complex problems for any type of installation.
For customers that have just ordered a new BATEMAN attachment, BATEMAN can handle every aspect of the delivery, including customs clearance anywhere in the world. Its high volume of deliveries allows it to offer competitive rates to its customers. The delivery is flexible, provided the destination has capabilities to receive and offload heavy equipment.
In order to stay competitive in the market, BATEMAN is continually investing in research and development to improve its products and actively innovate new, highquality material handling attachments. After years in the grapple business, BATEMAN decided to bring over some of its grabs’ strongest features to its clamshell buckets’ design such as rotations, pin design and retention, cylinder design, and frame design to provide customers with the dexterity of an orange peel grapple.
In the past year BATEMAN is proud to have created, designed, and fabricated an all-new addition to its line up — the levelcut clamshell bucket. The level-cut clamshell bucket allows operators to
dredge the bottom of waterways. What makes this clam so special? The bowls are designed to extract a specific amount of sediment from the bottom of bodies of water, all while leaving a flush surface to save operators time and money.
