Bucket and quick coupler giant joins hydraulic hammer fray.
Miller Groundreaking is a name that will be familiar to anyone that has owned or operated an excavator in the past 20+ years. The Cramlington-based company initially built its reputation on supplying buckets to the construction, quarrying, mining and demolition sectors. More recently, the company was at the forefront of developing a new range of “safety-first” quick couplers in response to the crackdown on semi-automatic hitches.
But when the doors open to the Hillhead 2014 exhibition later this month, the company will add a new string to its bow in the form of an all-new hydraulic hammer.
Although details of the hammer remain a closely-guarded secret, we do know that one model has been on an extended four month trial with demolition contractor MGL Group in Miller’s native North East of England.
And, based on this exclusive film from our buddies over at Diggers and Dozers, it appears that the hammer has withstood the demolition environment extremely well.
