ECY Haulmark supplies Steelwrist couplers to Cawarden
By Steve Ducker24 March 2021
United Kingdom-based attachment supplier ECY Haulmark has completed a deal with specialist demolition contractor Cawarden to install the Steelwrist SQ80 fully automatic quick coupler system on the company’s machines and attachments.
The system permits hydraulic work tools such as shears, grabs, breakers and buckets to be quickly changed on job sites.
The deal included two Steelwrist SQ80 machine couplers for Cawarden’s new Komatsu PC490 high reach and Komatsu PC490 short arm machines, plus three SQ80 attachments brackets for existing attachments.
Cawarden’s investment also included a new VTN CI3200R 3.2 t rotating scrap shear which has also equipped with a Steelwrist SQ80 which is currently being used on a Komatsu PC360 on a contract in Staffordshire.
The shear suits excavators in the 27 to 39 t range and offers a throat force of 620 t and tip force of 146 t.
It is capable of processing I beam, H beam, round and square bar and plate metals with ease and is the ideal addition for use on demolition sites with varying materials and structures.
Last week, the new equipment was on site for the first time, demolishing a former gym in the English midlands.
“The new equipment has made light work of the project,” said Cawarden demolition manager Samuel Crooks.
“It’s a massive time saver versus alternative methods and we’re delighted with the new additions from ECY Haulmark to our fleet of plant and equipment.”
