M&M Demolition cleans up with OilQuick
31 October 2018
United Kingdom-based M&M Demolition carries out demolition and enabling works across all sectors, undertaking projects throughout the country. As a member of the National Federation of Demolition Contractors (NFDC) M&M takes on-site health and safety seriously and recently completed a successful audit.
Managing director Danny Wall first approached attachment specialist ECY Haulmark in the summer of 2017 with a view to installing the OilQuick automatic quick coupler to its new Hitachi Zaxis 350 machines.
At the same time, M&M took delivery of a VTN MD410 selector grab and VTN FP30 concrete processor to complement the brand new 35 t Hitachi machines, and has successfully used attachments from both companies on various projects ever since.
More recently the company placed an order with ECY Haulmark for a Furukawa FXJ375 hydraulic breaker again fitted with an OilQuick OQ80 attachment bracket by ECY Haulmark.
ECY visited a site in south London where the contractors are overseeing an 11-week project for the local authority adjacent to a primary school. The overall works involve the demolition and ground remediation of former boilers rooms at the far end of the site, to basement level.
“With this being a small site it’s great to be able to have just the one Hitachi 350 fitted with an OilQuick coupler on-site,” said senior project manager Karl Larcombe
“We can bring along a selection of attachments fitted with the OQ bracket, and we can get the project completed in a fraction of the time it would have taken making manual attachment changes.”
