Buckets - Changing buckets & attachments
This is a simple, step-by-step method of connecting any dipper end attachment:
Most excavators, even mini excavators have in-cab screens these days. The menu allows the operator to select different types of excavator attachment on the auxiliary hydraulic supply, BUT there is something else you need to know.
When switching between attachments like a hammer/breaker/pecker, which use on-way flow and attachments like grabs, grapples or shears, you need to ensure the actual changeover valve is in the correct orientation.
The location of this will vary on different types and sizes of machine, but the principle is the same. For some reason, there is no reference to this in the cab or screen instructions, which can be confusing.
