Attachment specialists Cherry Products have teamed up with Norfolk based Eastern Attachments, designer and manufacturer of the X-Form range of buckets and grabs for use with fore-end loaders and telehandlers.
The X-Form range, which will compliment Cherry’s existing attachments, is manufactured from Ultra High Strength Steel, utilise Eastern Attachments uniquely developed integral box technology, as well as a host of stand-out features and are painted in coastal grade 2-pack polyurethane paint.
Eastern Attachments was started in 1996 by four brothers whose aim was to produce class-leading attachments both in the agricultural and construction sectors. The X-Form product is manufactured at its art factory in Attleborough, having being supplied into the market by another company for several years. Eastern Attachments MD, Philip Leslie is “delighted to be working with Cherry, who share the same ethos on customer service” and believes that this partnership will “combine the best attributes of both companies, helping us to deliver our innovative products into the market.”
In partnering Cherry Products, Eastern have joined a market leader in the attachment industry. With over 500 active dealerships, the Oxfordshire based company boasts some of the most renowned implements available in the UK with its Buck Rakes and Access Platforms being best sellers. Cherry Products’ managing director, Graham Cherry is excited about this new partnership, “Eastern have a very good product in X-Form, one which is very well thought of in the agricultural industry. By joining forces, Eastern will have a partner whose whole philosophy is based on great customer service and we will ensure this is given with the X-Form range. We are very pleased that two top British companies have joined forces to offer the very best attachments available.”
X-Form Buckets already have an outstanding reputation in the industry and with larger capacity telehandlers coming onto the market for bulk grain handling and for AD sites, Cherry’s attachments sales manager, Dan Cross sees further benefits, “The beauty of the X-Form steel is that products can be made stronger, lighter and more durable than those made from standard mild steel, ultimately meaning users can achieve greater payloads from their machine. Typically speaking a 5.00m3 X-Form bucket weighs over 200kgs less than a like for like bucket manufactured from mild steel, meaning users can carry more material by going up a bucket size.”
To compliment the bucket range, the partnership will also see the launch of the new X-Form Grab range. The new models will offer increased strength, feature an enclosed fork back to keep the headstock and hydraulics clean, large plated pins, high capacity hydraulic cylinders, underside wear pads, a wide opening grab and offer a choice of KV style or Hardox tines.
