Northern Ireland-based Seaforde Metals is a family-run business that specialises in processing ferrous and non-ferrous metals. The company noticed the potential of OilQuick’s automatic quick coupler system to cut the number of vehicles operating around its yard.
The OilQuick system is widely used on excavators across the UK demolition industry, and it also offers scrap metal processors and recyclers increased safety and efficiency.
Supplied and installed by Warrington-based attachment specialist ECY Haulmark, Seaforde is now running two JCB models fitted with the OilQuick OQT8501 for forklift trucks. It means the company can now change between rotating fork attachments and bail handlers with ease.
Its Liebherr 934 excavator was later fitted with an OilQuick OQ80, and operates with a short dipper which is being mount either with a LaBounty MSD 2000R scrap shear or rehandling arm fitted with a scrap grab, allowing for quick, efficient and safe changeovers.
