They were designed as a scrap and demolition magnet with flexibility in mind. With only two hydraulic hoses to connect, they are easy to install and allow the operator to control the magnet with the activation of the hydraulic circuit.

  • Generator, pump, and control mounted on top of magnet
  • Controlled with the joystick, auxiliary switch, or foot pedal
  • Allows user to change implements quickly and easily.
  • Comes with chains and jump lines

Hydraulic Magnets With Teeth

They come with two sets of extended sorting claws that are designed to move and rake through debris, concrete, and demolished material allowing access to metal and rebar.

  • Quick coupler ready
  • Easy to hook-up and go
  • Recover iron more efficiently.

Battery Powered Magnets

BMG magnets are easy to install and move between carriers. They are the least expensive magnet, while still offering a very strong magnetic field.

  • Inexpensive to buy and maintain.
