Harford Attachments has been designing and manufacturing excavator attachments in the UK for over forty years. The company has chosen to exhibit at the Executive Hire Show 2017 for the first time. (Ricoh Arena 8th & 9th February 2017).

According to Harford Attachments the company’s quickhitch systems will improve the productivity, flexibility and potential of a machine. They combine safety and simplicity of operation with outstanding build quality.

Harford’s range of quickhitches, or couplers, suit the most demanding jobs that diggers will have to cope with. With a choice of mechanical or hydraulic hitches, their quick hitches work with most makes and models of equipment for quick and safe attachment changes.

The Harford Safelock® Quickhitch System simplifies the running of a mixed fleet of excavators. Harford say that it saves money every day by dramatically reducing bucket changeover times. The simplicity of its design means it is extremely low maintenance.

Simple to operate and incredibly rugged, the Safelock® Quickhitch System maintains the digging geometry and breakout force achieved with a conventional setup. Once the hitch is fitted, your machine will pick up any Safelock bucket or attachment, becoming as flexible and easy to use as a socket set.

Available to suit machines from 0.75 to 6 tonnes and backhoe loaders. Mechanical units can be upgraded to hydraulic operation. A lifting eye option is also available.

Uni-Lok® is the company’s new generation hydraulic quickhitch. The double-locking technology and unique combination of safety features gives the user complete peace of mind. Easy to fit and simple to operate, you can change attachments with both hands free to control the excavator.

Harford say that Uni-Lok® is the only hydraulic quickhitch available to fit machines right through the range from ¾ to 8 tonnes. We offer a full fitting service or can supply bespoke kits for all machines.

Pro-Lok® is the company’s new manual quickhitch. Its unique double-locking technology means there is no safety-pin required and no spring to wear out.

The unique primary lock indicator confirms a safe operating status, giving complete peace of mind while you get on with the job. Pro-Lok’s safety features exceed all current standards.

Built to last, it is available for all machines ¾ to 8 tonnes and will out-perform any spring-locking hitch.
