Werk-Brau has introduced the Hydra-clamp® bucket with a built-in rotary actuated thumb, which maintains consistent clamping force on the load through the entire rotation, for improved flexibility and precision. Constructed of abrasion and wear resistant and high-strength AR400 steel in all critical areas, this versatile attachment is ideal for handling heavy, awkward, or bulky items, moving debris, or sorting scrap, riprap, or other demolition rubble. Werk-Brau Hydra-clamp Buckets include serrated side plates which help secure debris while moving and are available in various sizes to match machines capacities.
Operators can use 100% of the excavator’s reach. There is less machine repositioning to grab or stack materials, so operators are more productive with less wear on the undercarriage. Installation is easy with no welding to the stick. The Hydra-clamp can be transferred from machine-to-machine, making it ideal for multi-machine fleets. This minimizes machine downtime and installation and labor costs, thus increasing machine usage and profitability. Total weight of the Hydra-clamp is typically less than a bucket and thumb combination, helping to optimize machine efficiency and productivity. Tapered side plates reduce wear on bucket sides and allows easier dumping. A variety of tooth options or bolt on cutting edge are readily available for customization of Hydra-clamp to suit specific needs.
