Overton Dismantling

Auto Dismantling System

The Builtrite Auto Dismantling System is marketed in th UK and Ireland by Overton Dismantling. It is designed to quickly and efficiently dismantle autos. Hold Down Arms are mounted directly to the excavator’s main frame and include a pair of large bore, high pressure cylinders, capable of applying enough force to crush and hold the auto in place. They operate off of the undercarriage drive circuit.
The Auto Dismantling Grapple features a wide opening, 360º continuous rotation while the dexterity of the jaws allow the operator to perform even the most precise maneuvers, making easy and quick work of pulling engines, radiators, wiring harnesses, heater cores, etc. Made from highly durable material, this tool is designed for long life and minimal maintenance.

SEDA VehicleDismantlingPlatform

SEDA VehicleDismantlingPlatform

Dismantling companies need equipment which support their work process. The new SEDA VehicleTiltingRamp moves the car, not the worker.
It is easy to place a car onto the system. Secured by a hydraulic safety arm on the top, the car is ready to turn 90° in order to help a worker to stand upright and work on the bottom of the vehicle easily. This unit offers a safe and efficient dismantling of ELVs. Once tried you will never want to work without it!
This device combined with a platform and our dismantling swingarm offers you more ways to work in a highly professional and industrial way.
An integrated swingarm on the platform ensures a perfect way of working with the SEDA RecyclingCutter or other additional tools which are necessary. Electronics as well as wires and connectors for air pressure, power, hydraulic and suction can be pre-installed and are easy to connect up on site.
