Reduced fatigue for operators


VIBY Attachment is trialling the inclusion of patented shock absorbing blocks on all direct mount wheeled loader buckets and Quickhitches supplied in the UK.

The move is said to provide operators with benefits including noise-reduction, minimised bucket vibration and reduced operator fatigue, enhancing the smooth-ride function already built into the machine.
The anti-vibration block consists of a plastic resin material which has been described as having significant compression qualities while remaining outwardly solid. A steel plate encases the plastic and is bolted to the attachment roll-back stops.
The attachments manufacturer has begun a 12-month pilot where it will be fitting the blocks as standard, free of charge, on all new direct mount buckets and Quickhitch attachments sold in the UK.
