Engcon mini-excavator sorting grab for 1.5- to 3-tonne machines

Aquajet Systems Rotolance hydrodemolition attachments roughen concrete surfaces

Aquajet Systems AB, a manufacturer of hydrodemolition machines, now offers the Rotolance attachments. The powerful tool works in conjunction with Aquajet's Aqua Cutter 710 hydrodemolition robots as well as the Aqua Spine and Aqua Frame to deliver water pressures in excess of 36,000 psi through a specially designed pattern of nozzles. This effectively cleans, removes and roughens concrete surfaces, leaving a better bonding surface for new concrete or alternative materials. Contractors also can use the Rotolance to remove rubber coatings, paint, rust, plastic and other various materials. The tool serves as a light-removal alternative to Aqua Cutter robots meant to remove deeper sections of concrete.

TRK Severe Duty Scoop Rake gets right under stumps, big rocks and large roots

TRK says that their Severe Duty Scoop Rakes have by far the best overall effectiveness for heavy applications and production land clearing. Thicker shanks with replaceable teeth drastically reduce maintenance over the attachment's life cycle. The scoop design allows the operator to get right under stumps, big rocks and large roots. Another advantage is the scoop profile allows the operator to handle bigger loads of material, and easily sift out the dirt.
