Kinshofer’s New Low-Maintenance HPXdrive System

Published: 19/8, 2019

Kinshofer’s HPXdrive system forms a new generation of grab technology with greater performance and longevity. HPXdrive features two shafts that run opposed and have a helix thread, hydraulically driven by a single piston. This design gives the HPXdrive a longer lifecycle and allows it to deliver full and constant closing force throughout the entire open and close cycle. The HPXdrive system is compatible with Kinshofer’s multi-purpose grapple, demolition and sorting grapple, clamshell bucket, timber or rock grapple, and NOX-Tiltrotator, as well as for special attachments like the forceps grapple. The HPXdrive system delivers full closing force from the beginning of the process, when the shells are in the open position, to the end, when shells are closed. The constant closing force ensures optimal strength and powerful penetration even in tough soil or while handling heavy material. Operators will also experience improved gripping capabilities and precise positioning due to the high constant closing force.

Additionally, all moving parts in the HPXdrive continually run through a self-lubrication oil bath. This leads to a long service life with very little wear and tear and required maintenance, resulting in a minimum 50% longer lifecycle compared to conventional hydraulic attachments.
