Couplers and attachments: Boss Attachments

With brands such as Boss, OSA, and Fortress Shearcore in their extensive arsenal, it’s easy to see why Boss Attachments has scrap and demolition needs well and truly sorted

Fortress Shearcore has become a brand of choice for scrap and demolition contractors

"We believe that our comprehensive range of world-leading brands provides clients with the significant performance advantages they need in today’s highly competitive environment," says Paul Herbison of Boss Attachments.

Fortress Shearcore has become an international brand of choice for scrap and demolition contractors who need the security of a shear that can handle the heavy-duty demands of continuous 24/7 low-maintenance operation.

Fortress Shearcore was founded in 2014 by Bruce Bacon, who had previously played a major role in the development of both the La Bounty and Genesis ranges, so the company has a long pedigree in shear development.

Concrete processing reaches a new level

Now, with their FC range of concrete crushers, they’ve developed what they say is the ultimate concrete processing tool and, in doing so, have helped redefine primary and secondary demolition. 

This has resulted in a concrete crushing attachment that Boss Attachments says puts it in a class of its own when it comes to the demolition of concrete and steel rebar.

Features include:

  • Solid upper jaw with no plates or welds and a press fit pivot group (same as FS series) that allows for tolerances tight enough to shear rebar all the way out to the tip
  • Bolt-on wear components for maximum life
  • Full-length side plate machines from high-yield structural plate steel with
  • no weld seams
  • Bolt-on and replaceable stick wear guards that nearly eliminate any need for resurfacing

These unique features, combined with Shearcore’s advanced manufacturing techniques and state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities combine to deliver the power and performance that industry professionals demand, says Boss Attachments.

The Fortress FC concrete crushing range can be installed on a variety of carriers, everything from smaller excavators up to massive high-reach demo machines and is rated for up to 5500 psi.

The Boss brand wagon also includes the renounced OSA range of scrap and demolition tools. "Having both Fortress and OSA brands means that we can consistently provide our clients with a world-best solution to their specific project needs," says Paul.

Designed to deliver increased power and precision performance, the versatile OSA range provides primary and secondary demolition tools for crushing and pulverising and includes hammers, shears, crushers, multi-tools, and pulverisers.

"We’re confident that our range can provide contractors with the tools they need to help reduce operating costs and increase productivity."
