KINSHOFER Multi-Quick Processors Offer Versatility & Industry-Leading Jaw Change-Out Times
KINSHOFER’S Multi-Quick Processors, featuring best-in-class cycle times, jaw change-out times and power-to-weight ratio, allow demolition and recycling industry contractors to use one attachment with several jaw sets instead of buying several tools for different applications. Contractors can choose from six to eight jaw sets, depending on which of the four MQP models they choose, including dedicated concrete, steel or tank jaws, as well as combination and specialty jaws.
KINSHOFER’s MQP features the company’s DemaPower™ cylinder technology. The cylinder uses four chambers instead of the two found in other attachments, resulting in 20% more surface area within the cylinder. That allows the MQP to exert up to 25% more power from a smaller attachment, resulting in the best power-to-weight ratio in its size class. Higher power in a smaller tool also improves efficiency and performance in high-reach demolition, a practice that’s becoming more common in the U.S.
KINSHOFER’s double-acting speed valves and innovative cylinder technology also gives the MQP superior jaw closing and opening speed — cycle times as fast as 5 seconds. Competitive models use a single-acting speed valve that allows only for a fast opening speed or closing speed, not both. With attachment’s fast cycle times and high power, contractors can complete jobs as much as 20% faster, improving ROI.
Contractors can change KINSHOFER MQP jaws faster, easier and more safely than competitive models thanks to the company’s DemaLink™ system. Operators only need to manually remove one pin from the attachment during change-out, compared to three with many competitors. In addition, DemaLink allows two people, or a single skilled operator, to switch out jaws in minutes and get back to work quickly. In comparison, competitive models often need to be taken to a shop and take hours to switch.
KINSHOFER’s jaw offerings include the Combi jaw for primary demolition and a mixture of concrete and steel; the Demolition jaw for primary demolition of heavy concrete structures; the Pulverizer jaw for primary or secondary demolition, pulverizing concrete during or after the job, as well as some steel cutting; the Steel jaw for primary and secondary demolition of steel structures and scrap; the Tank Shear jaw for primary and secondary demolition, including demolition of tanks and cutting steel plates; and the Universal jaw for primary and secondary demolition of concrete decks.
The MQP Steel and Combi jaws feature the company’s DemaGuide™ system, which uses a guide plate to provide additional stability at the pivot point. The extra stability means greater cutting efficiency and precision. The cylinder also features a trunnion design, ensuring compactness, a better center of gravity and an optimal closing force curve. Once the shims show signs of wear, maintenance crews can adjust the jaw tolerance by simply tightening the main pin.
KINSHOFER reinforces the MQP with twin rotation motors, boosting rotation power and reducing the risk of the attachment shifting or rotating on its own. The MQP also includes a safety system that reduces the risk of dangerously high pressures within the rod cylinder.
To reduce replacement costs and service downtime, KINSHOFER manufactures all wear parts for easy onsite replacements and exchanges across jaw types. In addition to offering exchangeable cutting edges, an industry standard, KINSHOFER features crusher attachment teeth that can be quickly replaced on site.
This ease of replacement combined with KINSHOFER’s performance-enhancing features delivers a low cost of ownership and fast ROI. Additionally, the company designs the tool’s oil distributor to include an extra channel to allow for water spray or grease systems.
The KINSHOFER MQP is suitable for 18t to 65t carriers.
