Attachments for heavy machinery refer to any tools or devices added to the existing machine or equipment to modify its original function.
Discover the Types of Attachments
Classified by the type of heavy machinery and equipment they are used on, attachments can range from construction equipment typically used in excavation, bulldozing, and other earthmoving tasks to agricultural machinery used for farming activities like planting, harvesting, and transportation.
For example, excavators can be fitted with grapples, hydraulic hammers, and buckets to perform various jobs, from demolition and digging foundations to lifting materials. Similarly, backhoes can be equipped with rippers, augers, shovels, and clamshells for multiple tasks like excavating trenches or breaking concrete.
Attachments also come in a range of sizes and capacities, making them suitable for both large-scale commercial applications as well as smaller residential projects. The size of the attachment will usually depend on the machine it is being used with.
Common Brands of Attachments
Most of the well-known heavy equipment manufacturers also produce attachments for their machines, including:
- John Deere
These attachments are usually designed specifically for the machine they are intended to be used with, meaning that they will work best when paired with that particular model. However, independent companies also produce universal attachments, which can be used with multiple brands and models of machines. These attachments are manufactured by companies such as Geith, Hammer, Idromeccanica, Sandvik, and more.
