sustainable construction sites

In the ever-evolving world of construction, innovation for sustainable construction sites are key. As the industry moves towards a more sustainable future, companies like Masterhitch are playing a vital role in providing cutting-edge digger attachments that not only enhance productivity but also contribute to the ambitious goal of creating diesel-free construction sites by 2035. In this blog post, we will explore the plans for more sustainable construction sites and the range of digger attachments offered by us.

Meeting the Sustainable Construction Challenge: 

One of the greatest challenges faced by the construction industry today is reducing its environmental impact. With diesel-powered equipment being a significant contributor to air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, construction sites must transition to cleaner, more sustainable alternatives. Did you know the construction industries CO2 emissions reached ten gigatonnes of CO2 equivalent – five per cent over 2020 levels and two per cent over the pre-pandemic peak in 2019.

The transition to diesel-free construction sites:

The transition to diesel-free construction sites requires technological advancements driving the development of electric-powered construction machinery. Electric excavators, loaders, bulldozers, and other equipment are becoming increasingly available and efficient, offering comparable or even superior performance to their diesel counterparts. These machines can be powered by grid electricity, on-site renewable energy sources, or advanced battery technologies, significantly reducing or eliminating emissions during operation.

Alternative energy sources:

Furthermore, alternative fuels and hybrid technologies are also playing a significant role in the sustainable construction site movement. Biofuels, such as biodiesel and renewable diesel, offer a greener alternative to traditional diesel fuel. These fuels are derived from sustainable sources, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and minimising environmental impact. Hybrid technologies, combining electric and fuel-powered systems, provide a transitional solution by reducing emissions while offering the flexibility of diesel generators for extended operation or remote areas. 

The Masterhitch Quick Hitch for a new diesel-free digger:

The Quick Hitch is a revolutionary device designed to rapidly and securely connect and disconnect various attachments to construction equipment. This innovative system allows the machine to automatically detach, hook and securely lock buckets in place without the need for the operator to leave the safety and security of the cab. The quick hitch’s unique safety features make it impossible for the selected bucket or attachment to detach from the machine while in use. Masterhitch offers the quick hitch in sizes between 2.5 and 50 tonnes.
