KINSHOFER Completes Product Range, Gains Breaker Line with Acquisition of Hammer

KINSHOFER, a leading global manufacturer of high-quality excavator and loader crane attachments, is expanding its product line to include hydraulic breaker excavator attachments following the acquisition of Hammer SRL, an Italy-based manufacturer of demolition, excavation, recycling, and material handling attachments. KINSHOFER chose the company because of its reputation for quality and more than 30 years of experience in the market. The new line includes 22 breakers for carriers from .5 ton to 200 tons and joins an already expansive line of KINSHOFER tools.

KINSHOFER announced the acquisition and debuted the new breaker line at World of Concrete 2019.

“These breakers allow us to offer our customers access to a full range of attachments all in one place,” said Francois Martin, KINSHOFER North America general manager. “Hammer will be a great addition to our group of companies, bringing with them high-quality attachments and a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.”

The breakers are made up of the KSB Series for carriers from .5 ton to 12 tons and the KFX Series for weights from 8 to 200 tons. Each line includes features to improve operator comfort, reduce wear and improve longevity. The acquisition also includes a variety of grapples, buckets and more. These will serve as an alternative to KINSHOFER’s premium attachment line for the price-restricted customer.

The Hammer management team will stay in its entirety and will continue manufacturing in Italy. Hammer and KINSHOFER will add additional staff to ensure a smooth launch of Hammer’s products and services worldwide through KINSHOFER’s global network.

The acquisition of Hammer demonstrates KINSHOFER’s commitment to being a global leader in the attachments industry and bringing customers only the best tools. Hammer brings extensive experience designing and manufacturing attachments for a variety of carrier types. Like KINSHOFER, the manufacturer uses strict quality control during the entire process, from a careful examination of the steel to be used to the actual creation of the attachment. That attention to quality was a primary reason KINSHOFER chose Hammer.

“We send representatives to every manufacturing facility we acquire to ensure quality standards are consistent,” Martin said. “It’s important to us that our customers receive only the best. It’s why we offer a broad two-year warranty on all of our attachments, including the new breaker line.”

Hammer attachments will retain branding in Europe but will be marked KINSHOFER in North America.

All KINSHOFER attachments are backed by a two-year warranty.

Michelin Expands Tweel Airless Radial Line and Distribution Network

Michelin Tweel Technologies, a division of Michelin North America, Inc., is showcasing new mower products and announcing new distribution outlets during the Green Industry Expo show in Louisville, Ky., with the introduction of:

  • a new 26-inch zero-turn radius (ZTR) mower size for four-bolt wheel-pattern hubs;
  • a new, 18-inch stand-on mower size for a 2018 John Deere model;
  • a new partnership with Sunbelt Outdoor Products for MICHELIN® X® TWEEL® TURF replacement tires and
  • the addition of Ag-Pro as a distributor for X TWEEL TURF products.

“Michelin continues to demonstrate the forward momentum of this award-winning airless tire through the growth of the product portfolio and distribution network,” said Olivier Brauen, head of Michelin Tweel Technologies. “With uptime so crucial for our customers, the MICHELIN X TWEEL airless radial tire provides an unparalleled solution. Building relationships in the market are our goal.”

Scag and other operators of ZTR mowers utilizing a 26-inch, four-bolt pattern rear wheel will now be able to buy the no-compromise airless solution for their commercial mowers. Available through the TWEEL dealer network, the black hub version of the MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF is a single unit, replacing the current tire/wheel/valve assembly. It performs like a pneumatic tire, but without the risk and costly downtime associated with flat tires and unseated beads.

Featured on the 2018 John Deere QuikTrak™ Stand-On commercial lawn mowers, the new 18-inch MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF will be available on this new equipment. The QuikTrak is John Deere’s top-rated stand-on machine for commercial mowers and landscapers. The four-bolt pattern yellow hub is also available on the 24-inch MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF, designed exclusively for the John Deere ZTrak™ 900 Series mowers with 54-, 60- and 72-inch deck sizes.

In an exciting collaboration with Sunbelt Outdoor Products, the distributor will become a partner with Michelin to sell Michelin X TWEEL TURF mower and golf cart products. With seven distribution centers across the United States, Sunbelt Outdoor Products is a wholesale lawn and garden parts distributor, dedicated to servicing outdoor power equipment resellers.

Retail customers will now be able to purchase Michelin X TWEEL TURF products through Ag-Pro Companies. Ag-Pro is one of the largest John Deere dealers in the United States.
