Areas of Application

Tyre handlers are specially designed for the mining and earthmoving industries. However, these come in handy in any application that consists of fitting or removing tyres on earthmoving equipment.

Excavator buckets are typically connected to an excavator machine. They are designed for digging, so they let you plough through hard soil and even rocks. You can also use them for levelling, sloping, demolishing, ditching, and backfilling.

Forks are typically attached to backhoe loaders, wheel loaders, and skid-steer loaders. Their primary application is carrying, lifting, moving, stacking, or tiering construction or mining materials.

Jibs are earthmoving attachments that are used to transfer materials, suspend tools, supplement another crane for material handling, and many other lifting applications. Since they occupy a small working area, they are more efficient and easier to operate than large jib cranes.

Compactors are used to rearrange soil density to reduce subsequent settlement under working loads. They reduce the volume of pores in the soil that get filled with water and air for increased stability and compaction. This helps build a strong foundation.
