KINSHOFER’s railway tie changer attachments offer efficient railway maintenance and repair

KINSHOFER offers railway Tie/Sleeper Changer attachments for efficient railway maintenance and repair. The three attachments — the RBS, RBS20 and RBS20HPX — can be used with 12- to 24-ton rail excavators to quickly exchange existing concrete and wooden ties without disrupting the track. The RBS20 can also switch from handling standard mono-block ties to bi-block ties with no modification, thanks to internally and externally fitted pads.

Kinshofer updates D-Series demolition and sorting grapples

Kinshofer offers its D-Series grapples with a new light, compact and flexible shell, ideal for sorting and demolition. The attachments feature 360-degree endless rotation for precise positioning to give construction, demolition and recycling contractors optimal control when grabbing materials. D-series grapples are available for 4,400-pound (2-ton) to 176,000-pound (80-ton) excavators. 

KINSHOFER Acquires Atlas transverse cutter business

KINSHOFER has acquired the Schaeff Transverse Cutter business from Atlas GmbH, a Germany-based crane and excavator manufacturer. The transverse, or drum, cutters are the first in KINSHOFER's line of crane and excavator attachments, allowing the company to serve contractors in a wider range of industries, including tunneling and mining. The addition also gives contractors in construction, demolition and landscaping access to a broader range of attachments, all from one manufacturer. 

​KINSHOFER Multi-Quick Processors offer versatility and quick jaw change-out times

KINSHOFER, a leading global manufacturer of high-quality excavator and loader crane attachments, offers its Multi-Quick Processors, featuring best-in-class cycle times, jaw change-out times and power-to-weight ratio. The attachments allow demolition and recycling industry contractors to use one attachment with several jaw sets instead of buying several tools for different applications. Contractors can choose from six to eight jaw sets, depending on which of the four MQP models they choose, including dedicated concrete, steel or tank jaws, as well as combination and specialty jaws. 

Kinshofer NOX-Tiltrotators have cylinderless design and only two grease points

Kinshofer's NOX-Tiltrotators have a universal joint that offers 360-degree continuous rotation and tilting angles of up to 2 by 55 degrees, which the company says is the widest in the industry. The Tiltrotator features an elliptical piston, rather than a cylinder, for a streamlined design and high-power performance in a variety of tight areas and applications, such as road construction, general construction and city snow removal.

​New hydraulic mobile shears from Kinshofer feature industry-leading power-to-weight ratio and cycle times

KINSHOFER, one of the world's leading sources of high-quality excavator and loader crane attachments, introduces the DXS Series of hydraulic mobile excavator shears. The line features industry-leading in its size class power-to-weight ratios, jaw opening sizes, cycle times and hydraulic efficiency. The attachment series, which debuts with the DXS-50 model, is ideal for scrap processing, tire recycling and demolition.

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

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. Wherever giant cranes, pneumatic vacuum elevators (grain blowers) or conveyors are not available or possible, classical grabbing devices should be the first choice. Attached to an excavator, their mobility makes them extra attractive. 

Region-specific quick coupler solutions for old attachments

As often the case these days, original equipment distributors (OEDs) are faced with the challenge of selling a machine to a customer who has an inventory of old attachments they want to use with their new machine. The company Contractor Sales of Albany, NY, and Jeremy Rauf, the responsible salesman, found themselves in this situation after selling a Liebherr 964 to a customer who had multiple Cat buckets he wanted to use to replace an old bridge in Roscoe, NY. Contractor Sales had initially purchased another brand coupler to mount onto the Liebherr to pick up the Cat buckets. Problem was, it didn’t come as advertised and could not pick up the Cat 330CL with the D-linkage buckets which requires a 90mm pin in the stick and 80mm pin in the linkage. Fortunately, Bill Liburdi, Contractor Sales’ rental manager, had heard of the KINSHOFER-coupler before, and contacted the company about its X-Lock brand coupler. KINSHOFER, using the required specifications of the D-linkage, was able to design a coupler that would mount to the Liebherr machine and also pick up the necessary attachments. Contractor Sales showed their customer that they had his best interest in mind in providing a coupler that could be mounted to his new machine while allowing him to utilize his existing inventory. Kinshofer demonstrated that they know the importance of providing a solution that makes their customers, the dealers, look good.
