Viby launches new Hy-Tip
By Lindsay Gale22 December 2014
Viby Attachments has introduced a new version of its Hy-Tip bucket for compact and backhoe loaders designed for handling low density materials, typically below 1,000 kg/cubic metre. The new bucket is aimed at wheeled loaders with a maximum operating weight of 10.5 tonnes or backhoes with a maximum operating weight of 8 tonnes. The bucket features a substantially increased dump height as it is hydraulically lifted from its built in frame. According to the company, the new bucket is ideally suited to the recycling sector where machine size and operating cost are especially important.
Andrew Little, director of Viby Attachment (UK) Limited, said: “This new lighter and smaller version of our hugely popular Hy-Tip bucket has been launched in response to conversations we’ve had with many of our customers. It fills a significant niche in the market – primarily for waste and recycling applications but there are also areas where machines such as the backhoe loaders are used as jobbing machines for many applications, rather than as a dedicated productivity machine." He added: “We’re delighted to bring this compact Hy-Tip to the UK and expect it to generate a lot of interest in the coming months.”
