OilQuick automatic quick couplers have typically been reserved until now for operator driven excavators, forklift trucks and wheel loaders. Sole UK OilQuick distributor ECY Haulmark Limited recently offered one of their customers a unique and bespoke engineering solution to adapt the OilQuick system to suit their Brokk remote controlled demolition machine, the first such installation for the UK demolition industry.
Brokk machines offer a powerful alternative when a demolition excavator cannot gain access within confined spaces or those deemed unsafe for human access within buildings earmarked for demolition.
Mace have been working closely with our demolition contractor to raise standards with regards to health, safety and environmental concerns.
As a result of this the site took delivery of a Brokk 160 which was fitted with an ‘OilQuick’ system, this enables the operator to automatically change between hydraulically powered attachments within seconds instead of minutes.
Another major benefit of this is that the operative no longer has to put themselves at risk from contamination with oil or injury associated with manually changing attachments.
