DECKHAND® S

Built for versatility on any job site

An all-purpose unit that easily adapts to changing conditions, the DHS is your problem solver.

 

Small, versatile, and packed with features: the DHS is engineered around optimal safety allowing precise load handling and placement. The in-cab control panel features a touch screen to make quick adjustments and calibrations on the fly. The DHS can tilt further than the original DECKHAND® head unit, ensuring maximum adaptability to any job.

The DECKHAND® system is a modular design that consists of a main head unit that works in tandem with interchangeable arm attachments. The head unit mounts to any brand of excavator; the excavator’s auxiliary hydraulics then safely and efficiently power the system. Interchangeable arms are used to pick up pipe, poles, casings, or road mats and securely lift, lower, rotate, and tilt the load under the total control of the operator inside the excavator cab.
