There is more that you can do with an excavator than digging. These fifteen annexes offer a range of options, from land clearance to demolition. You can even operate skid steer attachments and grind logs. Of course, we’ve added some buckets as well, as Caterpillar’s TiltRotate system allows the company’s next generation of compact excavators to rotate attachments such as buckets and grapples 360 degrees and tilt 40 degrees to each side. Operators can maneuver attachments over, under, and around obstacles during drilling, grading, and other tasks. The TiltRotate models, the TRS6 and TRS8, come in hydraulic couplers or bolt-on configurations. An optional indoor hookup, attachment from construction attachments allows your excavator to convert from a bolt to a standard two-pin slide hitch. Can be used with accessories such as buckets, forks, root presses, manual snow blades, tree sticks, and can be disassembled and rotated 180 degrees for backfilling, digging, hill scraping and similar uses. The general-purpose skid steer adapter is designed for excavators weighing up to 10 tons. It features adjustable, pinned and reversible clamps that are reversible and interchangeable. The nails are resistant to abrasion and have greasable zircon fittings. Epiroc Combi Cutters come in a variety of jaw types for use in primary demolition and secondary reduction of concrete structures, as well as steel structure cutting at demolition sites. The jaw types are designed to be easily operated using the coupling and positioning system. Hydraulic cutters provide high breaking strength, short cycle times and feature integrated 360 ° rotations. Teeth crushing and cutting blades are replaceable. The cutting blades are also reversible. Piston rod guards allow full hydraulic cylinder protection. The Eterra EX-30 Heavy Duty Brush Mower is designed to be light enough to work on side ridges to prevent the excavator from tipping over. It can cut materials up to 5 inches thick, and up to 6 inches thick if run slowly and steadily. It’s compatible with excavators from 7,500 to 14,000 lbf and 13 to 35 gpm of hydraulic flow. The mower features a 2-pound blade and Permco USA engine. It’s designed to reach even the smallest of properties and leaves a soft covering for minimal cleaning. Sold by Skid Steer Solutions, the company says Fecon’s Stumpex EXC can cut the stems of any type of tree between 10 and 28 inches in diameter in a single pass. The drill type mill is designed for excavators from 12 to 20 tons. It has a maximum cutting depth of 20 inches. The low speed and torque attachment operates from 7-17 rpm, resulting in minimal vacuum when grinding, for easier cleaning. This is due to the threaded Stumpex cone and interlocking AR500 cutting blades. A lower grinding speed also increases safety, with the Gradall Telestick providing a 50-foot boom extension to the company’s truck-mounted excavators, which can reach highway speeds when traveling to and from job sites. It can also be used on XL 5200V crawler models. The device can assist in cleaning canals and ditches, grading and shaping the edges of trenches and cleaning storms when equipped with a bucket or hook. The arm extension can be tilted 220 degrees to work on slopes, under bridges, or in tunnels. The movement of the boom is driven by a load-sensing hydraulic system. Kubota by Land Pride excavator augers can drill holes in hard-to-reach areas and dig deeper than similar attachments to a skid steer or compact bucket. Features include a level indicator so the operator can know if the drill is vertical to the drill and output shafts provide high torque resistance. An optional cradle supports the auger while traveling and prevents it from swaying intermittently. Drills have Universal Quick Attach connectors. The EA35 model requires 15-30 gpm of hydraulic flow; The EA20 requires 6 to 30 gallons per minute, and the Montabert V7000 hydraulic breaker fits into its 20,000-pound impact energy class and features automatic variable power technology that adapts to the hardness of the material. The company says an automatic pressure regulator ensures optimum performance regardless of oil temperature or hydraulic conditions. The fire blanket protection reduces the energy expended by the striking press to reduce wear of key components. The energy recovery valve captures the reflux and turns it into additional energy. The crusher also has an automatic lubrication system. Okada’s TOP 1000J Hydraulic Hammer is designed for excavators weighing 82 to 110 tons. Applications include demolishing heavily reinforced concrete structures, building foundations, trench rocks and boulders. The hammer requires 92 to 110 gpm of hydraulic flow, and breaks at a rate of 200 to 280 strokes per minute. Features on the hammer include a large-capacity accumulator to reduce pressure spikes to protect the excavator’s hydraulic system, and nitrogen gas to reduce piston pressure and increase the bottom stroke. Omef Tree Shear allows the operator to grab and cut at the same time. They can be cut through trees from 8 to 24 inches in diameter. It reduces the movement of the operating machine and speeds up the loading. With national attachments, the clearance equipment can be used with excavators ranging from 2 to 40 tons. It comes in five models and is made of AR400 and AR500 steel. The shears are designed for fast, efficient and cost-effective yields and can handle tree length with predictability and safety. Premium attachments provide the compact drill floor drill motors in two modes – standard service for light to medium drilling and heavy duty service for tough conditions. Drill drive mounts are available for all compact excavator models, including those for bolt-on buckets and OEM and aftermarket quick couplers. Custom tripods are also available. A cradle function is offered with mounts to hold the drive and drill bit when moving from one hole to another. Output shafts are available in 2-inch hexagon, 2-1 / 2-inch and 2-9 / 16-inch circular form. Volvo Construction Equipment includes a new attachment package that allows its 14-ton excavators to be converted into rotary pipelines and makes trenching safer. The boom can be installed on the main boom of the excavator in about an hour. With a rated load of 7,300 lbs, pipes up to 20 inches in diameter can be processed. When used in conjunction with a Volvo Excavator’s rotating superstructure, the package gives the operator more maneuverability and control when tube placement without the need to change the track position. It’s also designed to be ready for transportation in minutes. Werk-Brau’s new heavy duty excavator buckets are designed for demolition work, as well as working on fired rock and other abrasive materials and moderate prying performance. When paired with a thumb, it can be used for material handling. Widths range from 3/8 to 10 cubic yards. High-wear components are made of AR400 through AR500 steel. Further protection is provided by side wear plates, horizontal wear lines, and extra thick cutting edge supported by an anti-corrosion plate covering the bottom of the bucket. Bobcat’s new heavy-duty bucket is designed for the company’s largest excavators, the E145 and E165, which were launched last year. The heavy duty grading bucket is intended for transportation of materials on the job site, as well as for finishing, grading, backfilling or trench cleaning. The bucket can be attached to a bolt, quick coupler, or used with a thumb. Bobcat also released four other attachments for the larger excavators: the heavy-duty trenching bucket, hydraulic quick coupler, HT Thumbs and Pro-Link thumbtacks. Doosan heavy duty crawler excavators can handle abrasive materials during digging and heavy loading. Features include side cutters, bottom cover and side panels, plus a welded wear shroud, all made up of a corrosion-resistant material. Four or six stiffeners serve to stiffen the machine’s mounting link on the shovel. Front wear pads provide additional protection from rocks and irregular materials. The wear-resisting wear belt at the bottom improves wear resistance when working in tough materials.
