November 2019 Newsletter

November has flown by, and the holiday season is nearly here. While many of us are looking forward to a break over the Christmas and New Year period, the holidays also mean shorter months with everyone working hard in preparation.

If you are planning some downtime over the summer months, it’s a great time to keep up with your maintenance and any repairs that are needed. Remember our manufacturing team can help with repairs to any of your excavator attachments so give us a call today to discuss your needs and book them in now.


Birds nests – Be aware of the fire risk

The weather is warmer, and this means the birds are out nesting and they love warm dry spots like an engine or exhaust . Take a few minutes every time before your start your machine to check it over for any signs of bird nests and clean them out before they become a hazard. It only take a few hours for a bird to build a nest, and this has the potential to create a fire. A quick safety check could save an expensive (and dangerous) situation.


They’re built tougher, just ask Scotty

Scotty Walker seen a few attachments in his 6 years with Robur, but this one was a little special. This 12T Ram Tilt hitch is one of our original designs an is an impressive 16 years old, with more than 15,000 hours in operation! It has outlived 2 diggers and has come in for a refurbishment before heading out on it’s third digger. It’s great to see that aside from a few small refinements like making the hitch more compact, and the addition of a double lock coupler base, the basic design is the same as the hitches we make today – smarter-tougher-faster.

Scotty is a qualified welder who loves fishing and is an amazing singer, keeping his workmates entertained while singing loudly while working. Check out our video review of this hitch for more info from Scotty.
