Cobra introduces screening bucket with OilQuick coupler for efficient workingPublished 25/2 at 11:05
Cernos Oy (Ltd) is a Finland based private company producing screening bucket hydraulic attachments under the ‘Cobra’ brand name for screening and crushing applications.
The first such Cobra buckets have been developed and produced now over 25 years. OilQuick AB (Ltd) is a Sweden based innovator and manufacturer of quick coupling systems. The products are marketed and sold under the brand name OilQuick, which has become one of the most versatile and appreciated quick coupling systems in the world.
The Cobra screening bucket is an attachment for excavators, wheel loaders, skid steers, telehandlers and other base machines. With the Cobra screening bucket, users are able to screen, crush, separate, mix, aerate and load simultaneously in a one-step operation. This means users are able to screen and sort materials for recycling, compost and aerate green waste, recycle and handle topsoil, process dirt and demolition waste, backfill pipelines and cable trenches, prepare topsoil for landscaping, screen peat and mulch, mix or stabilize different materials. Furthermore it can crush, screen and grind raw materials in industrial applications and crush or screen frozen materials, such as sand or fertilizers.
OilQuick’s quick coupler is an automatic quick change adapter to change attachments without leaving the cabin of the base machine seamlessly connecting the hydraulics and electrics. The system can be used with excavators, wheel loaders, telehandlers, lift trucks, lorry cranes and material handling machines. This means that an excavator, for instance, equipped with the OilQuick quick coupler and Cobra screening bucket can make the excavator function as a multi tool platform for earthmoving works. This means that when beginning worksite improvements the excavator can be used to dig the material using a regular bucket or different types of buckets. Following digging, the same excavator can be used to screen the soils at the site using the Cobra screening bucket producing a fine end material ranging from a 10mm to 75mm fragment size.
After screening is completed, the OilQuick quick coupler can be used and changed to another attachment within 10 seconds, thereby finalising the site improvement works with any other required attachment. This means that through always having the right attachment fitted and producing required materials on site, users are able to save both time and money.
Cobra screening buckets with OilQuick quick couplers will be exhibited at the OilQuick stand (Festival Grounds — F2876) at Conexpo/Conagg in Las Vegas, 10 to 14 March.
