Eurocomach shows battery-powered excavator

Digger Blogger | 14:14, Wed April 25 2018

One of the lesser-known names to grab my attention at the Intermat fair in Paris this week was Eurocomach, part of the Italian Sampierana group, whose all-electric ES12X mini excavator was shown in concept form.

Sampierana has been making crawler tracks and undercarriages for companies such as Liebherr for many years. It set up Eurocomach in 1992 as a brand for its own line of complete machines. (Eurocomach stands for ‘European Construction Machinery’.) It produces mini excavators, skid steer loaders and backhoe loaders.

It is represented in the UK by Total Plant Solutions, which also goes by the name of Exc@v8, which is presumably meant to be pronounced as ‘excavate’.

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.
