The HPXdrive system from Kinshofer features two shafts which run opposed and have a helix thread. It is hydraulically driven by a single piston. This design aims to allow for full and constant closing force throughout the attachment’s open and close cycle. All moving parts in the HPXdrive continually run through a self-lubrication oil bath. Contractors can also use the system for underwater applications thanks to its waterproof design. The system is compatible with the company’s multi-purpose grapple, demolition and sorting grapple, clamshell bucket, timber or rock grapple and with the NOX-Tiltrotator.
