Masterhitch launch new Concrete Pourer
Company’s latest excavator attachment offers efficient and safe way to pour small batches of concrete
MASTERHTCH, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of fully automatic quick-hitches, have launched a new excavator attachment which, the company says, boasts several unique and innovative features.
The Masterhitch Concrete Pourer is a unique bucket attachment in that it has been designed with two spouts – one facing towards the machine and the other away from it. This gives the operator the ability to choose the best way of pouring up to one cubic metre of concrete, or other wet/fluid material, easily and evenly to optimize both efficiency and, more importantly, safety.
‘The Concrete Pourer has proven to be a very popular Masterhitch product,’ said general manager Neil Davis. ‘Our sales team has already taken numerous orders and the workshop has been busy manufacturing concrete pourers, ready for dispatch.’
Unlike other similar attachments currently available, the Masterhitch Concrete Pourer, which can be supplied with the facility for either a standard pin or quick-hitch attachment, has been designed for use on carrier machines from 8–24 tonnes in weight.
Sean Green, engineering manager for Masterhitch, commented: ‘Various customer feedback and research told us that this attachment was a very much-needed product. We began design work several months ago and held focus groups along the way with some of our top clients, getting them to test out the prototypes for themselves. This really helped us achieve the best possible product design.’
Masterhitch say their new Concrete Pourer’s unique design, which allows concrete to be spread evenly in two directions, will eliminate the need for construction workers to be in the immediate vicinity during the pouring process.
