The new APX pick point tooth design contains more wear material, thanks to having a longer, 150 mm profile and weighing 14.6 kg.
This pick point is specifically designed for Cutter and Hopper Dredgers operating with extreme dredging applications and in highly abrasive rock terrain.
The launch of the new MD5APX marks the completion of the DMet range in the MD5 size, where we already have the MD5P pick point design for hard rock terrains, as well of the chisel and flared designs for sand and clay respectively.
