Are you concerned that your heavy duty equipment is showing signs of wear and tear? No need to worry. Most of heavy duty equipment comes with replaceable attachment parts. So when you find your equipmentâ€™s performance to be subpar, it is time to replace the attachment parts for heavy duty equipment.
In this article, we have mentioned a few attachment parts for heavy duty equipments which are imperative for numerous activities.
In the construction industry, there are 3 types of compactors, namely the plate, jumping jacks and road rollers.
Uses: The roller type are used for compacting crushed rock whereas the plate type is suited for creating a level grade. Jumping jacks mainly used to compact backfill in narrow trenches, for water or gas supply pipes.
A backhoe, also called a rear actor or back actor, is a piece of excavating equipment consisting of a digging bucket on the end of a two-part articulated arm.
Uses: It is used for a wide variety of tasks: construction, small demolitions, light transportation of building materials, powering building equipment, digging holes/excavation, landscaping, breaking asphalt, and paving roads. The backhoe bucket can also be replaced with powered attachments such as a breaker, grapple, auger, or a stump grinder
It is a drilling device, or drill bit, that usually includes a rotating helical screw blade called a “flighting” to act as a screw conveyor to remove the drilled out material.
Uses: In construction, augers are used for special drilling rigs to dig holes for deep foundation piles. Another use is for piles forming a piling retaining wall, which can be constructed in the same way as foundation piles.
A pulverizer or crusher is a mechanical device for grinding many different types of materials.
Uses: There are quite a few types of pulverizers but the one used in the construction business is called impact pulverizer. An impactor can be used to break down concrete, gypsum, asphalt, and aluminum. Using a heavy metal drop-down arm, it repeatedly smashes the material inside and fractures the object at points of weakness. In the end, the crushed material takes on a square appearance and can be formed into easy-to-remove cube blocks of waste.
Hammers and breakers(hydraulic)
A breaker is a powerful percussion hammer fitted to an excavator for demolishing concrete structures or rocks.
Uses: Breakers are used to demolish concrete structures or stubborn rocks. They are also used to soften concrete debris, frost locked earth and areas where blasting is not possible due to safety or environmental issues.
Oiling all of the equipment at the right time is highly important without which the efficiency of heavy duty equipment is hampered.
