A Great British Innovation from Dean Equipment.

For over 45 years, the team from Dean Equipment have been at the forefront of excavator attachments in the UK with a presence worldwide. With few RRV or excavator attachments capable of handling anything beyond a uniform straight section, our Chairman had a vision for an attachment which could handle multiple structures with ease. The product of years of design-engineering R&D, 'The Articulator' revolutionises the way we handle difficult, weight structures, of all shapes and sizes. Say farewell to slings, chains and ropes!
