Not only are their aftermarket, hammerless ground engaging tools (GET) solutions of the highest quality for the most aggressive construction and mining applications, but they also have a fun corporate culture complete with their resident “Raptor” occasionally working on our Cat buckets! Cashman recently became a bronze level dealer with Raptor, meaning we do more than $150,000 worth of work with them per year. In celebration of that, Raptor made us our very own bronze raptor who is currently lurking about in the product support section of our Henderson location.
Cashman began working with Raptor in 2013 to fill in the gaps in product offerings from Caterpillar. Raptor supplies Cashman with custom GET, as well as laser scanning of buckets, blades, and even crushing equipment. Raptor’s steel and chromium carbide liners are able to fit all of our customer machines, allowing Cashman to garner more GET deals. Additionally, Raptor field tests products extensively, and many are then added by Caterpillar to their branded Cat GET line.
Cashman primarily uses Raptor’s mining and construction GET solutions. This includes Hammerless GET RaptorPlate® and HarderPlate® laser scanned bucket kits and wear parts for all makes and models of electric rope shovels, dippers, hydraulic mining shovels, and dragline buckets as well as wear parts, ARM and PTA applied Tungsten Carbide Overlay, RaptorPlate and HarderPlate laser scanned wear kits and MAO GET for all makes and models of wheel loaders, excavators, motor graders, and large excavators.
