Now that Kinshofer has taken over several manufacturers in Italy, its product range is even more extensive. Especially for the smaller cranes from 4 to 30 tonnes, the range of recycling and demolition tools is very extensive.

The first tools have been delivered; this was an excellent iron scissor of about 500kg with a CW10 head plate. This tool was provided to the customer by our loyal dealer Verkooyen Machines. The iron shear, type KCS06, has a robust swivel head section and a long stroke cylinder for optimum closing force. The blades can be rotated all around and are interchangeable for maximum use and minimum consumption costs.

Van het Hek from Middenbeemster has bought a beautiful Kinshofer FK13 combi shear at Rigter Handelsonderneming. With these shears, they can cut small concrete walls or grout piles, or if there are still small steel constructions, they can also cut or remove them. 

The FK13 combination shears have a robust swivel head and a nicely concealed cylinder. The combination shears have a lot of power due to the long-stroke cylinder and transfer it beautifully to the frame. This extends the service life and minimises maintenance costs.

The FK13 is now working on a project in Schipluiden on a pontoon with a Kobeco crane. Here, the concrete sheet piles are being replaced by steel sheet piles. With the purchase of various Italian manufacturers, Kinshofer is expanding into the demolition and recycling segment.


On a project at IJburg Amsterdam, about 110,000 cubic meters of sand is unloaded every week. Usually, two Caterpillar 390's are used with J&B grabs.

Now Rigter/Kinshofer was given a chance with an entirely new type of grab. The new double HPX 8,000 litre. Per grab, 55,000 cubic metres of sand are unloaded, which means approximately 93,500 tonnes per week.

The double HPX excels in weight and speed, but it is still a prototype, which is why filters have also been built-in so that if there are any problems, no metal or sealing parts can get into the crane or vice versa.

For a project in Amsterdam, Lek-Sloopwerken had to demolish a scaffolding. There we rented a Kinshofer polyp with jib and an Open-s 90 head plate. It is a Kinshofer P30VHD 600 litre polyp with a lot of clamping force and a loose jib of four meters.

The head plate with the open-s system type 90 is, in this case, from Steelwrist but also Oilquick, Rototilt or SMP endplates would have fitted. We are moving towards universal hole pattern heads in our entire hire fleet to which all end plates can be fitted. This way, the investment in tools is still somewhat manageable with the various systems. From Open-s, Cw, Lehnhof, Atlas or Licufix, we are happy to help.

FL Liebregts/Reyrink currently rents a Kinshofer HPX transfer grab. It is used to construct a new railway viaduct in Hilversum, about 10 kilometres from Eemnes.

Here the sand is being diverted from a pit towards the new viaduct. This sand is scooped from a container with the Kinshofer HPX grab. Here the HPX is in its element, water/dirt/sand and time pressure.

Not having to lubricate the bowl drive results in low rental costs and maximum production without worries. So, in the end, satisfied customers - and that is what it is all about.
