Telehandlers are really versatile machines that can bring a great range of benefits to your jobsite. They are able to perform multiple functions, this reduces the need for additional equipment and helps to increase site efficiency. One of the biggest benefits of using a telehandler is its manoeuvrability, making it ideal for use in tight spaces and on challenging terrain. With the right telehandler attachments, you can use your machine for tasks including handling materials, excavation, demolition, and lifting people.


Adjustable reversible forks are really useful for telehandlers in a variety of ways. The primary use of this attachment is to handle material. They can be used to lift and load materials and items of different shapes and sizes. The ability to adjust the fork width means you can handle these materials precisely and efficiently. The option to reverse the forks also means you can decide whether you have the load facing or away from the cab. The overall benefits of using fork telehandler attachments are increased versatility, improved handling, and reduced risk of damage to the telehandler and its load.

Ejector buckets are valuable telehandler attachments to have. They can be useful in a variety of industries, including agriculture, construction, and waste management. Ejector buckets use a hydraulic system that allows the operator to eject the bucket’s contents without having to tilt it. This ability increases the efficiency and productivity of your machine.

The roof truss jib is a telehandler attachment that has been specifically designed for use in the construction industry. It’s a telehandler attachment that is used to lift and position roof trusses and sometimes other building materials. This is especially useful during the construction of roofs, walls, and floors. This attachment allows for the operator to easily lift and move heavy loads with precision and accuracy. Reducing the need for manual labour, which saves time and lowers the risk of injury.

Crush It With These Demolition Attachments

Are you taking on a demolition project and looking for ways to increase efficiency? Look no further than our range of demolition attachments available from Masterhitch. From digger breakers to crusher buckets, these digger attachments are specially designed to help you crush it on the demolition site.


Also known as hydraulic breakers or demolition hammers, digger breakers are used to break up concrete and other hard surfaces such as rock and asphalt. These attachments fit onto excavators, backhoe and skid steer loaders. Digger breakers use hydraulic power to deliver high impact blows, with a chisel tip which helps to break the surface into smaller pieces. Making them perfect for demolition work.

Rippers are demolition attachments that are used to break up hard soil, concrete, and tarmac. You’ll typically find rippers being used as an attachment on excavators, as the ripper is excellent for helping to prepare the group for excavation. This attachment can come in a range of shapes and sizes, each made to suit different types of material. Using this attachment will help to increase the longevity of your excavator buckets, as you won’t be putting strain on them whilst trying to dig up solid ground.

Another powerful demolition attachment that’ll help improve your project is the crusher bucket. This attachment is designed to fit onto excavators and are used to crush and recycle concrete, rock, and debris. The crushed material produced by the bucket can be used as fill, reducing the need for bringing more materials onto the site. A huge advantage of using a crusher bucket is that you’ll save a lot of time. Crusher buckets allow the operator to redistribute crushed material for backfilling, meaning you won’t need to wait around for a skip to arrive, or a site dumper to move the load around.

Hydra grapples are a very versatile type of digger attachment. They can be used in demolition to easily sort and move debris around the demolition site. This grapple uses hydraulics which allow the operator to control the opening and closing of the grapple. With this attachment, the operator is able to efficiently pick up large or awkwardly shaped pieces of debris. You’ll find this attachment especially useful in situations where it would be dangerous and difficult for manual labour to be carried out.

The Importance Of Raising Awareness For Women In Construction

women engineering

March 5-11 is Women in Construction Week, an annual event that celebrates and raises awareness for women who are working in the construction industry. This week provides an opportunity to acknowledge the contributions that women make to the construction industry. As well as to highlight the obstacles that they face in this male-dominated field.

Historically A Male Dominated Industry

In the past, the construction industry has been a male-dominated field. As men have made up the majority of the workforce. Women, on the other hand, have been underrepresented in the industry. As a result, women have faced a number of challenges. These challenges include everything from discrimination and harassment to a lack of mentorship. As well as a lack of career advancement opportunities.

However, despite these challenges, women are making progress in the construction industry. According to a recent report by the National Women’s Law Center, the number of women working within construction has increased by 82% since 1985. This is a positive trend, but there is still much work to be done to ensure that women are fully represented. 

Discrimination & Harrassment

One of the biggest obstacles that women face in the construction industry is discrimination and harassment. Women who work within construction often report experiencing offensive remarks about their age or gender when on the job. 

This kind of behavior is unacceptable, and it’s important that we work to create a safe and welcoming environment for women. This means taking steps to prevent harassment and discrimination. As well as providing women with the support and resources they need to succeed in the industry.

Challenges Faced

Another challenge that women face in the construction industry is a lack of mentorship and career advancement opportunities. Women who work in construction often report feeling isolated and unsupported. As such, they may struggle to find role models and mentors who can help guide them through the challenges of the industry.

To address this issue, it’s important that we work to create more opportunities for women working in construction. This could include everything from providing more training and development programs to offering mentorship and career advancement opportunities.

In addition to these challenges, women working in construction also face a number of practical obstacles. For example, many construction sites are not designed with women in mind, so women struggle with using a restroom or getting changed on job sites.

To address these issues, it’s important that we work to create more inclusive and welcoming work environments for women. This could include everything from providing more female-friendly facilities on site. To creating more flexible work arrangements that can accommodate the needs of working mothers.

Positives To Women Working In Construction

There are many positive reasons why women should work within construction, despite the challenges they may face. Here are a few:

Opportunities for career advancement

With the increasing demand for skilled labor in the construction industry, there are many opportunities for career advancement. Women can start out as laborers or apprentices. Then work their way up to supervisory or management positions. This can provide a sense of pride and accomplishment, as well as financial stability and security.

High earning potential

The construction industry can be very lucrative, with many jobs offering competitive salaries and benefits. Women who work within construction can earn a good income and support themselves and their families.

Variety of work

The construction industry offers a wide range of work.  Women can find a job that suits their skills and interests. Whether it’s working with their hands, designing buildings, or managing construction projects.

Ability to make a tangible impact

One of the most rewarding aspects of working in construction is the ability to see the results of your work. Female construction workers can take pride in the fact that they are building something tangible and lasting. Whether it’s a bridge, a skyscraper, or a house.

Chance to work outdoors

Many construction jobs involve working outdoors, which can be a welcome change from office jobs. Women construction workers can enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, and the physical activity can help keep them healthy and fit.

Growing demand for women in the industry

As more women enter the workforce and the construction industry faces a shortage of skilled workers, there is an increasing demand for female construction workers. This means that women working in construction may have more job opportunities and greater job security than in other industries.

The opportunity to challenge stereotypes

By working in a traditionally male-dominated field, women can challenge stereotypes and break down barriers for future generations of women. They can serve as role models and inspire other women to pursue careers in construction or other fields where they may be underrepresented.

Raising Awareness

Ultimately, Women Working in Construction Week is an important reminder that we still have a long way to go! The aim is to ensure that women are fully represented in the construction industry. By raising awareness of the challenges that women face, we can work to create a more inclusive and supportive environment for all workers, regardless of their gender.

How Many Women Are Working In UK Construction?

According to the UK Government’s official statistics, the number of female construction workers in the UK has increased steadily in recent years. Yet women still represent a minority of the workforce.

As of 2020, women made up 14.5% of the total construction workforce in the UK, which is up from 12.8% in 2019. This represents an increase of around 35,000 women working in construction between 2019 and 2020.

Excavator Buckets: The Versatile Attachment for Heavy Machinery

crusher bucket

Excavator buckets are an essential attachment for plant equipment used in construction, mining, demolition, and other industries. They are perfect for jobs that require digging, hauling, and moving materials. These buckets are designed to fit various types of diggers, ranging from mini diggers to large diggers, and are available in different sizes, shapes, and configurations to suit specific applications.

In this week’s blog post we take a look at various types of buckets available from Masterhitch, and why you should be investing in them for your fleet. 

What are Excavator Buckets Used For?

Excavator buckets are used for various tasks, including:

Digging and excavating:

The primary function of an excavator bucket is to dig and excavate soil, rocks, and other materials from the ground. These buckets are designed to be strong and durable, allowing them to break through tough and compact materials.

Loading and hauling:

Once the materials have been dug up, the digger bucket can be used to load them onto a truck or other transport vehicle. The bucket’s capacity and shape will determine the amount of material that can be loaded and how easily it can be moved.


Excavator buckets can also be used for demolition tasks, such as breaking down concrete structures or removing debris. The bucket’s sharp edges and strong construction make it ideal for these types of tasks.

Grading and levelling:

They can also be used for grading and levelling tasks, such as preparing a site for construction or landscaping. The bucket’s shape and design can be customised for these specific tasks, such as with a grading bucket that has a flat bottom and a smooth edge.


Excavator buckets can be used for various landscaping tasks. For example, digging holes for trees and shrubs or creating a pond. The bucket’s versatility makes it a useful tool for a wide range of landscaping projects.

Types of Excavator Buckets

There are several types of excavator buckets available on the market, each designed for specific applications. The most common types of buckets include:

General purpose buckets:

These buckets are all-round and can be used for a wide range of applications.  For example, digging, loading, and hauling. They come in various sizes and capacities, depending on the size of thedigger. Our customers can select standard pin buckets, or even use our Masterhitch buckets which are fitted with our unique hooker quick hitch design. 

Tilting buckets:

Tilting buckets are designed with a tilting mechanism. Allowing the bucket to pivot 90 degrees and rotate horizontally up to 45 degrees. This makes it easier to dig and level on uneven terrain. If you have a 7, 12, 20 or 22 tonne digger, then Masterhitch have tilting buckets readily available.

Riddle buckets:

Also known as skeleton buckets, riddle buckets are designed with a grid-like structure. Allowing small debris and dirt to fall through, making them ideal for sifting through soil and other materials. Here at Masterhitch, we can make riddle buckets to fit 7, 14, 21 & 30 tonne diggers.

Ejector buckets:

Ejector buckets are used by operators within the forestry and renewable sector. The main use is to pick up and safely transport light materials such as wood chips, to load a truck or for the purpose of biomass boilers. The use of hydraulics in the movable wall makes dumping materials easy and time efficient.
