Hewden investing around £1 million in a range of Miller breaker attachments, which will see more than 180 new breakers added to Hewden’s attachment portfolio for use with its range of excavators (1.5-ton to 22-ton) and telehandlers (5m to 17m) from 1st July 2015.
Hewden is also introducing an innovative new hanger system, allowing customers to interchange attachments even if they operate a mixture of JCB and CAT machines.
To ensure the highest level of onsite safety, Hewden engineers will pre-fit all attachments, using the safest quick hitches on the market. The machine is then transported and unloaded on site, ready to go to work.
“We have worked closely with the Miller team to provide Hewden customers with not only the safest breakers on the market, but a range that adds real value to the onsite solution they provide,” said Adrian Murphy, CEO, Hewden.
“Combine that with the truly unique hangers, designed exclusively for Hewden, which allow the mounting of Miller breakers to both our Caterpillar and JCB machines and we have a very exciting proposition,” added Murphy.
The breakers are also the first on the market to include both an automated lubrication system across the entire range, and a tracker fitted to each machine to locate if misplaced onsite, or stolen.
“Innovation is at the heart of what we do and an integral part of how we add value to the customer experience. Both the automated lubrication system and the trackers are designed to minimise downtime and reduce cost, meaning our customers can get on with what they do best,” concluded Murphy.
