Bateman Manufacturing, Shanty Bay, Ontario, has introduced the Hydra-Magnet, a combination self-contained auxiliary-powered magnet and brushless-free hydraulic generator.

Bateman says the Hydra-Magnet easily and efficiently adds magnetic functions to excavators, eliminating the need to install generators or cables on multiple machines. The product’s design, the company adds, makes the attachment an excellent and flexible tool for fleet use with various machines, as well as an ideal tool for lower-duty cycle and occasional contractor use.

To operate, a user needs to attach the Hydra-Magnet to any excavator set up with an auxiliary circuit and operate by either joystick control or button. Once the circuit is turned on and the flow is at the generator the magnet will charge and start to work. When the job is complete the user can turn off the circuit and the material will fall as the generator slows.
