Award Winning Excavator Attachment Improving Productivity & Performance
Presented by Boss Attachments
Productivity, performance and safety are three aspects that are vital to any machine owner. And one business who has found the answer to dramatically improving the ability of your excavator is Boss Attachments.
Boss Attachments is an Australian company who developed the award-winning Extractor Telescopic Clamshell with Canadian company Shearpower Corp. Working together their engineers designed an excavator attachment that fuses performance-enhancing technology, and groundbreaking safety, to deliver a world-first in the attachment industry.
Boss’ World-First Telescopic Excavator Attachment
The team at Boss attachments took this a step further by designing a world first safety system in-house to ensure the Extractor was not only the most efficient telescopic arm available, but also the safest.
Recently, this attachment was awarded 2021 Attachment of the Year, and is rated highly for its durability, safety and advanced technology.
“We [Boss Attachments] were thrilled to find out we’d won the Attachment of the Year Award. Our telescopic arm is the largest in the world, and is capable of extracting huge tonnages, at depths of over 50 metres. It’s game-changing technology, and it’s great to receive this recognition in the industry,” says Livio.
Features of the Extractor Telescopic Clamshell Arm
The Boss Extractor telescopic clamshell arm is versatile and can be attached to a range of different excavator brands; meaning businesses can choose to stay with their preferred carrier, allowing for quicker and easier adoption to the unit, by their own experienced operators. It’s this type of flexibility that makes it an award-winner.
Here are some other notable features of the attachment.
Ultra-Fast Cycle Times & Impressive Depth Capabilities
The Boss Extractor telescopic clamshell arm uses a combination of hydraulic cylinders and wire ropes to extend and retract with a full load in seconds.
With technologically advanced components, the attachment works to cut deep excavation bulk load out costs by up to 100%. It can remove material from depths up to 50 metres below the surface, and is ideal in complex and challenging excavation projects.
Integrated Auto Lockout Smart System
Providing unmatched safety to the attachment, Boss Attachments integrated auto lockout smart system is a game changer for protecting operators. This safety device is used to prevent the telescopic arm from operating beyond its pre-set limits, ensuring the excavator stays in the optimal stability zone at all times.
With its Boss designed touch screen module, operators can easily monitor all aspects of the attachment including, wire rope, bucket landing, backfill function, service interval metering and more.
Twin Camera System
When you need a machine that can dig at depths up to 50 metres below the surface, you need quality cameras to see what’s going on in the process.
The Boss Extractor telescopic arm is equipped with an advanced digital camera system, which delivers 360 degree views of the bucket and landing area at all times. These cameras are attached to the boom and work independently of all other systems, so that operators have complete reliability in all situations.
They also stream live audio, allowing the operator to monitor all aspects of the working environment—this is essential when you are so far from the working end of the unit.
Improving Productivity & Performance
Overall, it’s easy to see how the Boss Extractor is boosting productivity in complex conditions and why the attachment was chosen as an award winner.
“All in all, we’re very proud of the work that went into creating this beast. It saves time, money and increases jobsite safety. And, we’re happy it has now been recognised as an all-round winner!” says Livio.
