Hydraulic Dipper Door Snubbers



Kymera offers a comprehensive remanufacturing program for hydraulic style dipper door snubbers. This process includes:

  • Full snubber disassembly into individual component parts
  • All component parts cleaned and comprehensively inspected to determine reusability
  • Component parts failing to meet reusability specification remanufactured or replaced
  • Component parts reassembled and the final assembly tested to validate performance
  • The final assembly is painted to customer specification prior to delivery

Through long-term collaborations with several large rope shovel operators Kymera has identified weaknesses in OEM snubber design and developed improvements through remanufacturing that have consistently, and over a large sample size, delivered two, and up to three, times the service life compared with the original OEM component. Enjoy the benefits of longer service life and reduced interim maintenance cost by converting from clutch to hydraulic style snubbers using Kymera’s proprietary bucket conversion kit.
