ADM will be equipping a further seven demolition excavators with the OQ80 in the next 18 months

ADM, based in Cheshire in the north of England, also plans to add more of the attachments to its remaining seven demolition spec excavators during the next 18 months.

OilQuick is a fully automatic quickcoupler system which connects a variety of worktools directly to the machine without the operator needing to leave the safety of the cab. Typically, a changeover can be performed from inside the cab in 20 to 30 seconds.

“We took an interest in the OilQuick system for many reasons,” said ADM’s operations director Paul Cryer.

“Firstly, I had noticed over recent years on large demolition projects that a lot of time is wasted on site by operators having to leave the machine to change hydraulic attachments over manually.

“Secondly, as we all become more environmentally aware it is important that no oil is spilt during the attachment changeover process. Having the OilQuick system installed helps mitigate this. It also adds a cost saving benefit as we are not constantly topping up the oil”.

“The OilQuick system also negates the requirement for quick release hose couplings, which don’t last very long and are expensive, so all in all over time, it will pay for itself a few times over.”
