Troy Calteaux, current National Champion: "Yep. Real good. Well-built with good back-up. We do heavy work, and they get worked hard but stay together."

Mike Bowe, Waikato Regional Champion: "I like the innovation side of A2 that I’ve noticed in A2 digging buckets with a few extra features here and there."

Jim Beamsley, Manawatu Regional Champion: "Love the Multi-Grab. Great control. Awesome for demolition. Mk3 Grab Bucket with BIS400 wear plates (Hardox) and solid teeth is awesome, too."

Steven George, Northland Regional Champion: "I’ve used Heli-Tilt + A2 wide, trench, tock buckets, and a ripper. Heli-tilt is amazing. Love the 90-degree tilting each way."

Isaac Wrigley, Canterbury/Westland Regional Champion: "They’re great and very tight. A2 quick hitches work very well." Corey Olsen, Wellington Regional Champion: "They’re good. Very nice."

Marni Kemp, Bay of Plenty Regional Champion: "They’re really good. Pretty easy to change over attachments and strong too." Brenden Ferguson, Southland Regional Champion: "I’ve only used the gear during the competition. They’re good. Well-built and sturdy."

Jarrod Hoskins, Auckland Regional Champion: "I found the A2 Multi-Grab Bucket good for placing and lifting rocks." Daniel McPham, Hawke’s Bay Regional Champion: "They’re good — love them. Heli-tilts and Ram-tilts. Good at changing attachments."


Shaun Curtis, Taranaki Regional Champion: "Those A2 cleaning (wide) buckets have a good shape on the bottom. They’re great for ‘finishing’ work."

Simon Wenham, Nelson/Marlborough Regional Champion: "I’ve only used them here at NEOC. I like the idea of the A2 All-In-One bucket. They look good quality and they set up well."

Kaleb Hollands, Otago Regional Champion: "I’ve only used it here during competition. They are pretty good. Very responsive. We’re not using them in our workplace back home, but if I owned the company, I’d definitely buy some."

Overall, it seems the feedback attests to Attach2’s durability, innovation, versatility, and ease of use.
