Removal of Cat® Advansys Tips

Note: During bucket operation, the retainer or retainer area may become filled or packed with material that makes retainer rotation difficult. It may also be difficult to remove the rusted parts. Consider the following suggestions when rotating the retainer.

  1. The retainer must be free to rotate before the tip can be removed. It is necessary to remove as much of the compacted material as possible before using a breaker bar to rotate the retainers.

  2. Remove debris from the square socket in the retainer.

    Note: If packing and removal of compacted material is frequent and time consuming, consider using the plugs designed for these sockets. The 523-9811 Retainer Plug can be used for Cat® Advansys 130 systems and the 468-8046 Plug can be used for Cat® Advansys 150, 170, 200 & 220 systems.

  3. Soaking the packed retainer socket and the rear end of the tip with water may make retainer rotation easier. After wetting the material, allow a few minutes for the material to soften. Remove the softened material and then rotate the retainer.

  4. Shocking the retention system may be necessary. A small air chisel or needle scaler may be used in order to loosen a severely packed retainer or a retainer that is rusted in place.

    Note: Once tips are rotated to be unlocked, the tip is no longer held on to the adapter and could fall off. To prevent bodily injury, ensure tips are pointed up and attached to proper lifting device when applicable.

  5. Using a 1/2" breaker bar for 130 series Cat® Advansys tips and 3/4" breaker bar for 150, 170, 200 and 220 series Cat® Advansys tips, fit the square of the breaker into the retainer socket and rotate counter clockwise 180 degree into the unlocked position. Refer to Illustration 8. Perform this operation for the retainer on each side of the tip.

    Note: A back and forth motion may be necessary in order to loosen any remaining debris.

  6. Ensure that the tip is unlocked. The retainers should be turned fully counter clockwise.

  7. Slide the tip off carefully.

    Note: Thoroughly clean all materials from the adapter nose prior to installing a new tip.
