Buyers have evolved drastically with the advent of the internet and have become informed and demanding. The OEM’s are in tune with the changing needs of the evolving consumer and have come up with various options to add versatility to their machines. The most effective one of these being the attachments which serve the dual purpose of being add on accessories for the main machines. A whole new market has evolved from the understanding that with the simple use of interchangeable attachments, their machines can be re purposed for various tasks at 1/10th the price of the whole machine.
The buyers are now understanding that they need not buy whole new machines, they can take just the functioning attachment and attach it to their existing machine to enable it to do various tasks across the spectrum. The backhoe loader can be re-purposed to be used on the farm for harvesting sugar cane on farms. This simple attachment saves on time and money spent on manual labour in addition to making money from its usual tasks. Attachments are a convenient and easy on the pocket way to increase the scope of work of a single machine and grow the business.
Attachments take up barely 20-30% of the storage space as compared to the whole machine that comes attached to it. Given their relatively smaller sizes, they are easier and more convenient to transport from one place to another. An attachment lets the machine be put to use at a time when it would have otherwise been kept idle due to lack of certain type of job opportunities. These are easy to change and can be managed with minimal manpower for both operation and maintenance. The attachments in themselves cost anything between 10-30% of the cost of the whole machine and help recover the initial investment in the basic machine much faster.
Attachments have lower expenses on storage, maintenance, operation, insurance and logistics as compared to the whole machine. However the attachments generate the same amount of money that an addition machine would at a much lower cost of investment. A single attachment can open up additional job opportunities. Additionally they help reduce the idle time of the machine due to restrictions of the machines capabilities. Attachments help change your single machine into a many in one machine at a very small price.
Attachments are quint essential individual functional parts of various machines that can be used with the same basic machine. For example, the EarthMaster form Mahindra Construction Equipment can be repurposed to function as a crane, dozer, fork lift etc with the change of a single attachment in place of the loader. For the 1 full machine, you have a multi function machine that handles the work of multiple machines based on the attachment used. Attachments are simple to handle, manage and change. With the right set of compatible attachments, you can convert you backhoe loader into a pole erector in a matter of minutes.
Mahindra Construction equipment proves for various attachment options like an assorted range of buckets like the 6 in 1 bucket used for digging, dozing, clamping, grading, levelling, landscaping, demolition etc, square hole bucket, ripper tooth bucket, coal loader bucket, v shaped bucket and the ditch cleaning bucket to name a few. Add to that the two rock breaker attachments, augers, fork lift, jib crane, dozer blade, pole erector, sugarcane grabber etc to add versatility to the already very versatile Earthmaster.
The various attachments are all compatible with the Earthmaster and are easily interchangeable in a matter of minutes. These are designed to compliment and add to the productivity of the basic machine and add to its life. The attachments are designed and manufactured to sustain extreme pressures and working conditions. The individual attachments make it easier to transport various machines that one could require in a single go with the various attachments. The attachments help save a lot of time and money usually wasted due to manual labour. Attachments like the quick coupler and the central lubrication system ensure swift change of attachments, increased productivity and profitability while bringing down the maintenance and repair costs incurred.
It is safe to say that one should go around buying attachments without properly analysing the job prospects and the costs involved. The attachments if brought haphazardly will just prove to be additional burden instead of being tools to reduce one’s burden. Its best to understand how the attachment and your machine interact and what kind of additional jobs can come your way. One should consider the costs involved in buying a new attachment, how much value it can bring to your business, what kind of new job opportunities it can open and its long term impact on the bottom line of your account statement.
