11 accessories to expand the capabilities of your excavator
These 11 attachments can add a new dimension to your excavators, allowing them to be more productive on demolition jobs, jobsite jobs and a variety of other tasks.
These tools can separate rebar from concrete, allow the rotation and tilt of buckets and other attachments, or increase the lifting power of your excavator, among other capabilities.
Epiroc Bulk Sprayers are designed for secondary demolition and reduction of reinforced concrete elements. (Photo shown at the top of this story.) Featuring an angled shape and a wide jaw, the sprayers help speed up the job to allow a clean separation of rebar and concrete. The Epiroc range includes two bulk crushers for carriers from 18 to 40 tonnes. They can reduce the material to grain sizes suitable for crushing or use as backfill. The sprayer cutting blades are replaceable and reversible. 360 degree hydraulic rotation device is optional.
NPKFor excavators from 21 to 50 tonnes, NPK concrete crushers are designed to crush reinforced concrete to separate concrete and steel rebar. They are designed for primary and secondary demolition and recycling. Features include abrasion-resistant and high-strength alloy steel teeth, optional 360-degree hydraulic rotation, NPK’s hydraulic step-up system for faster cycle times and a replaceable dental plate bolted to the shaft. movable jaw. Model “A” also uses a toothed plate bolted to the fixed jaw.
KomatsuKomatsuis new JMHB-V circuit breakers are designed for rock and concrete demolition. Hydraulic hammers modulate their force and impact frequency with up to 16 working positions to suit the task. They are also equipped with a recovery valve that recovers energy to improve efficiency. Depending on the hardness of the application, the V-Series breakers automatically select the best piston stroke length and speed, depending on the company. Standard features include automatic lubrication, advanced blank fire protection, swivel hose connections, and a rugged housing.
RJB hydraulic hammersRJB hydraulic hammers designed a combination mini excavator / skid steer loader rack for its Hydraulic hammer HK45 for carriers of 3.5 to 6 tonnes. The company says it produced the mount in response to feedback from rental yards where the HK45 is the company’s most popular hammer for short-term rentals. The HK45 is a 1,000 foot-pounds impact class hydraulic hammer. It can handle larger concrete jobs. It comes with a tool diameter of almost 3 inches.
caterpillarcaterpillar says it’s Tilt and rotation systems are an industry first with fully integrated technology for its next-generation 306 CR, 307.5, 308, 308.5, 309 or 310 compact excavators. The tiltrotators can tilt left and right 40 degrees and swivel 360 degrees, allowing you to work from different angles without having to reposition the machine. The devices help improve productivity. Models come with pin or S-type coupler top interfaces and S-type coupler bottom interfaces. An optional grapple module allows the operator to move materials out of the way.
TakeuchiTakeuchiis new tiltrotator consists of the DF4, DF10 and Prop Plus models. The Prop Plus can perform both tilt and turn functions as well as a hydraulic coupler and several auxiliary functions using only the primary circuit of the excavator without a separate control box. It comes with two joysticks and a monitor. It can work with a scoring system. The DF4 performs tilt and turn functions with two hydraulic circuits and a control box in the cab. The DF10 can perform the same functions as the DF4 without a control box but requires a separate hydraulic circuit for each function.
Buckets and others
Werk-BrauWerk-Brauis new Skeleton rock buckets are designed to separate large boulders and other debris from small bulk materials. They are available in different widths and sizes for excavators or loaders. They are made with high strength T-1 steel in all critical wear points, with abrasion resistant wear straps to strengthen the bottom of the bucket. Tapered side plates reduce bucket wear and facilitate dumping. Buckets are ideal for quarry work and anywhere larger material is sorted from smaller bulk material.
YanmarYanmar‘s Retractable utility hook provides a factory-designed lifting point for the company’s compact excavators, from the ViO25 to the SV100, without the need for an attachment. This reduces the risk of damage to the machine, buckets or other attachments resulting from attempts to lift heavy objects with a strap or chain connected to areas not intended to be lifting points, according to the company. The hook features a multi-directional design that allows it to swivel in either direction and rotate 360 ââdegrees. Swivel hook stores out of the way with a locking pin.
Attachments to bedrockAttachments to bedrock says he has a warehouse full of long reach arrows and arm for excavators. Long spans range from 18 to 22.86 meters long for various Caterpillar, John Deere and Hitachi models. Bedrock uses computerized analysis to distribute long span stress and to optimize the design. It uses large milling equipment to improve welding. Hydraulic oil hoses are made of cold rolled precision steel and are finished with phosphoric acid wash to make the hoses smoother for reduced flow resistance and pollution of the oil circuit.
DanuserDanuser‘s EP auger system Excavator features a planetary gear with higher torque for drilling hard surfaces. The system is compatible with the new Danuser Stump auger, which planes the stumps. A threaded pilot digs into the stump and large cutting blades shave the stump. The blades are reversible. Models of the EP worm gear range from 6 to 35 gallons per minute of hydraulic flow and 1500 to 3500 pounds per square inch of pressure. The stump auger is available in 10 and 16 inch diameters.
TVH AmericasTVH Americas offers a selection of reversible, double bevel, bolt-on cutting edges to help extend bucket life for light construction equipment. The edges are made of high quality steel and are available in an assortment of widths and lengths. Bolt-on cutting edges can be turned or replaced in under an hour with basic hand tools. A double-sided or inverted blade can be rotated to give users essentially two blades in one. The blade also raises the bottom slightly off the ground, reducing drag and bucket wear.
