NEW Masterhitch Product!

MASTERHITCH EUROPE LTD, the UK’s leading designers and manufacturer of fully automatic quick hitches for excavators, has launched a new attachment which boasts several unique and innovative features.

The Masterhitch Concrete Pourer has two spouts, with one facing towards the machine and the other away from it. This allows the operator the freedom to choose the best way to pour up to one cubic metre of concrete, or some other wet or fluid material, easily and evenly to maximise both efficiency and, more importantly, safety.

“The Concrete Pourer has proven to be a very popular Masterhitch product. Our sales team have already taken numerous orders and the workshop have been busy manufacturing concrete pourers, ready for dispatch,” says Masterhitch General Manager, Neil Davis.

Unlike other similar attachments currently available, the Masterhitch Concrete Pourer can be attached to any machine from 8 tonnes up to 24 tonnes, which are typically the size of excavators most commonly found on construction sites.

“Various customer feedback and research told us that this attachment was a very much needed product to enter the market,” says Engineering Manager, Sean Green. “We began design work several months ago and held focus groups along the way with some of our top clients, getting them to test out the prototypes for themselves. This really helped us achieve the best possible product design.”

“The Masterhitch Concrete Pourer can be supplied with the facility for either standard pin or ‘Quick Hitch’ attachment. This is a particular feature that has pleased many of our customers,” says Green.

The Masterhitch design team believes the new Concrete Pourer’s unique design, which enables it to spread concrete evenly in two directions, will eliminate the need for construction workers to be in the immediate vicinity during the pouring process. It is hoped that this key safety feature will avoid future tragedies such as the one that claimed the life of Nicholas Hall when, in 2016, he was crushed by an excavator bucket as it was pouring concrete at a site in Blantyre, Scotland.
