Collins’ knock-out combination

Digger Blogger | 16:24, Wed April 18 2018

Midlands-based Collins Demolition has recently bought a pair of Volvo EC700 excavators and both came equipped with the OilQuick automatic quick coupler system for changing attachments.

The machines are currently working in the  Birmingham area on the site of the former Hams Hall power station, a structure built in the 1920s. It was completed in three stages – 1927-9, 1949 and 1958 – and once boasted 13 cooling towers and some interesting early power-generating machinery. Collins has the contract to complete the ground remediation.

A variety of hydraulic attachments are available on the site for the EC700 machines, both of which have had the OilQuick OQ90 quick coupler and attachment brackets installed by ECY Haulmark, the Warrington-based attachment specialist. The attachments in use on the site include a 3.8-tonne VTN MD610 selector grab and a 8.7-tonne VTN FP70 rotating concrete processor, also supplied by ECY Haulmark, as well as a variety of hydraulic breakers and buckets.
