Great Equipment Attachments for Every Need

Posted on by Greg Wiesen
Categories: Construction Equipment, Equipment Attachments

Having the right equipment and machinery, like a wheeled excavator or a loader, is important, but just as important as having the right set of equipment attachments to get whatever job you need done. These attachments work with the machinery you already have, allowing you to use one machine for more jobs, or to get specialized tasks done more effectively. The right equipment attachments can help you get your work done faster, ensure a job is done right the first time, and allow you to handle a wider range of duties.

Here at Quality Fleet Service, we offer a broad selection of equipment attachments from numerous manufacturers to help you get the job done. Since we often have clients come to us unsure of what they need, or even what’s available, we thought we’d take a moment to show off some of our favorite attachments available now. Keep in mind that there are too many equipment attachments out there to list them all here, and we can help you figure out just the right one for what you need.

Blue Diamond Attachments

Blue Diamond produces some of the finest equipment attachments in the world with a wide range of options for many different applications. For example, if you are looking for skid steer attachments, then they offer auger bits and extensions, brush cutters, and buckets. They have both open-front and closed-front brush cutters, including a heavy-duty brush cutter designed with three 72-inch blades capable of cutting 4 inches of material.

Excavator attachments from Blue Diamond include a vibrating post driver and excavator screening buckets designed to screen soil, sand, and other aggregate materials. They currently have three different screening buckets available right now, designed to fit different machine sizes with capacities from 6 cu.ft. up to nearly 15 cu.ft. There are different excavator hydraulic breaker hammers available from Blue Diamond, with a monoblock design that helps avoid failure, starting with 1.5-inch diameter models that can handle up to 1200 blows/min and going up to 4-inch diameter breakers that can withstand up to 900 blows/min.

If you are interested in tractor attachments, then Blue Diamond is a great choice with numerous options, including auger bits and rotary cutters. Tractor equipment attachments from Blue Diamond also include bale squeezers that can handle up to 60-inch hay bales, and disc harrows measuring from 5-feet to 7-feet in size. Flail mowers, in two different categories and numerous sizes, and grader blades from 6-feet to 8-feet are also available.

Loftness Attachments

Loftness manufactures some of the most impressive and powerful vegetation management solutions in the industry. If you work in forestry or you know that you will need to clear out underbrush or other dense vegetation any time soon, then a Loftness equipment attachment could definitely be your solution. Although Loftness produces a fairly wide range of attachments, here at Quality Fleet Service, we specialize in two of their product lines in particular.

The Loftness vegetation management products are ideal for forestry professionals and those with similar needs. They offer a wide range of products for handling dense brush and vegetation, including mulching heads designed to tackle anything you run into. The Loftness flail mower attachment is perfect for skid steers and gives you a solution for areas overgrown with dense grass, brush, and weeds. These attachments are designed for different kinds of equipment, including skid steer and tractor-mounted flail mowers and cutters for excavators and more.

We are also proud to offer the lineup of Loftness snow blowers here at Quality Fleet Service. These are far removed from consumer snow blowers you might see clearing off a sidewalk or driveway at someone’s house. These are massive snow blowers designed for use on skid steers and tractors. Loftness produces snow blowers for either front or rear mounting on a tractor, so you can get an attachment that works for whatever you need.

GRYB Attachments

GRYB equipment attachments are some of the most powerful and impressive in the industry, with a wide range of options for different machines. For excavators, GRYB produces heavy-duty and extreme-heavy-duty buckets, recessed buckets, and ditching buckets. There are different models available of each type of bucket, with increasing widths and capacities so you can pick just the right one for your needs.

Different loader attachments from GRYB include side dump buckets, high dump buckets, and extreme use buckets, with various sizes available. They also offer grapple buckets that are ideal for handling larger stones and objects, along with screening buckets to screen sand, gravel, and other aggregates. Specialty loader attachments that GRYB offers include a snow pusher and rotating icebreaker.

You can also get any of these loader buckets and equipment attachments for a backhoe instead. GRYB also manufactures a select number of attachments for handling machines. These include light-duty, medium-duty, and heavy-duty clamshell buckets able to handle between 4 cu.yd. and up to 6 or 7 cu.yd. of material. A handling auto processor attachment is also available from GRYB, which is designed for precision and immense jaw power to help you get work done.

Metal Pless Snow Removal

If snow removal is your primary concern or something you deal with regularly, then a Metal Pless snowplow cannot be beat. These equipment attachments are among the very best in the industry, with a wide range of different models, styles, and sizes available for you to choose from. This ensures you are able to get exactly what you need to handle, no matter how much snow you face.

Metal Pless snow removal plows are available to fit a wide range of machines, including tractors, wheel loaders, and skid steers. These are not the small plows you often see going down the street in winter, leaving lots of snow behind. Only a single model from Metal Pless is available for use with a consumer truck, and it can only be used by a one-ton or larger pickup. These are plows designed for serious commercial use, able to clear massive amounts of snow quickly and efficiently.

One of the keys to this is the live edge design that Metal Pless is known for. This allows for a sharper plow blade that gets closer to the pavement, clearing out more snow in a single pass, which reduces hard pack and lessens the chance of slips and falls. Their products feature baked powder paint that protects them from rust and corrosion, keeping them functional longer and working better for years to come.

Werk-Brau Attachments

Werk-Brau produces some of the best heavy construction equipment attachments in the world, with a focus on the construction industry in particular. They make attachments for many different kinds of equipment, including excavators, wheel loaders, and backhoes. Werk-Brau also offers a substantial lineup of couplers to ensure their products work with a wide range of machines.

Excavator attachments from Werk-Brau include heavy and severe duty buckets, along with specialty items like a V-line or trapezoidal ditch bucket. For front loaders and backhoes, they primarily produce rock buckets, including straight lip, spade lip, and skeleton rock buckets, so you can get the design that works best for what you need. Werk-Brau also produces a number of thumbs for use with excavators and backhoes, which are specifically designed for handling and loading irregular-shaped objects like rocks and debris from demolition.
