An attachment is an additional tool for construction machinery . With the help of the attachment, a construction machine can carry out various work processes. They are available for a range of devices, such as hydraulic and dragline excavators, as well as wheel loaders and bulldozers in various construction and performance classes .
The change between the individual attachments can either be done manually or with the help of quick-change devices.
