Being able to use inert materials of quality - or being able to resell them to third-party companies - is now a deciding factor for being competitive.

Kinshofer attachments ideal for wide range of materials from scrap to biomass

For forestry biomass, including waste logs or larger branches, KINSHOFER offers specialized wood and timber grabs in the T-series, for excavators with an operating weight from 3 tonnes to 100 tonnes.

KINSHOFER offers a wide range of attachments, from tiny cable buckets for landscaping construction excavators with just 1-t operating weight, up to giant clamshell buckets and monstrous scrap shears for excavators with up to 100-t operating weight. For handling biomass on industrial or harbour sites, choosing the right attachment for the job depends on the kind of “mass” you want to grab.

Attached to an excavator, their mobility makes them extra attractive.
