Tool changes in seconds, less machines on the worksite, higher production rates, more profit, and the right tool for the job, lower transport costs, no oil spill, improved safety with no people around the excavator when changing tools and no protected hose run. These are the major advantages when using a proper, fully hydraulic, automatic quick coupling system. Here we outline the latest developments from suppliers in this year’s PDi feature on quick coupling systems for demolition excavators. Jan Hermansson reports.
When purchasing a machine, surface preparation contractors must often see the bigger picture to avoid challenges after construction, with choices having to be made concerning the use of either propane and battery powered ride on floor strippers.
Hitachi has introduced a waste handling package for its ZW180-6 and ZW220-6 wheel loaders.
