Latest Combo and Micro crusher models to be officially launched at Hillhead 2018
ULRICH Attachments, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of attachments for mobile plant, will be launching a new range of compact crushers at this year’s Hillhead exhibition, as well as showcasing their existing extensive range of buckets and machinery attachments.
Hillhead 2018 will provide the perfect platform for Ulrich to officially unveil their new Combo and Micro crushers, both of which have been specifically designed to provide a convenient, cost-effective on-site recycling solution. The highly versatile models have been developed to work productively on confined sites, helping to reduce waste costs and improve sustainability.
With a powerful 22hp diesel engine, the Ulrich Combo machine delivers a production output of 6–8 tonnes/h, while its direct-drive system provides increased reliability and reduced maintenance costs.
At only 750mm wide and 970kg in weight, it can easily travel through standard doorways and fit in to most good-sized vans. The Combo unit features a robust jaw crusher that can handle concrete, bricks and rocks while an internal shredder reduces plasterboard, insulation sheets, plastics and cardboard.
The smaller Micro crusher is just as powerful as its Combo counterpart and, according to Ulrich, is the first of its kind on the market. The compact unit features a hydraulic powerpack system (powered by a highly efficient 18hp engine), and while it does not feature an internal shredder, the machine is extremely manoeuvrable, as it is directly mounted on a simple body that can be moved by either forklift or crane.
The Micro crusher also has the same direct-drive system and jaw crusher as the Combo, making it effective, efficient and highly reliable.
‘We’re delighted to be showcasing the latest crusher additions to the Ulrich range at Hillhead this year, with both models available on our stand for visitors to experience first hand,’ said Josh Copeland, account manager for Ulrich.
‘There’s so much to commend the machines, whether it is their ability to crush materials, such as concrete, rock, brick and roof tiles, to more manageable and economical sizes, or the fact that as both models feature universal auxiliary attachments, they can instantly and conveniently power a comprehensive range of hydraulic tools on site.’
Ulrich will also be presenting and demonstrating machinery attachments from their best-selling range, including the high-tip bucket, which is capable of achieving a dump action up to 1.7m above that of a conventionally mounted standard bucket.
Other attachments on show will include: general-purpose buckets suitable for heavy-duty and light material applications (eg rock, soil, woodchips); and the Ulrich block-handling fork, which can be manufactured to fit all makes of wheel loaders. The company’s new access system (to be fitted on a Hitachi ZX890 excavator) will also be demonstrated at the show.
