           The bucket’s tooth system is exposed to extreme stresses when it encounters a combination of hard materials, shocks and high breakout forces. In
             that environment it’s impossible to eliminate wear - but it is possible to reduce the effect it has on the tooth system. The great challenge is designing
                a tooth system that is optimised for the forces and wear to which it is exposed. Such a tooth system gives optimum service life with maintained
                   performance. Volvo has faced that challenge and succeeded. Discover the difference.
