Excavator Brands

We have endeavoured to cover the most popular and up-to-date brands of excavator available in New Zealand. But we are aware that there are additional makes and sub-divisions that are not included in our list.

If you are looking for attachments to fit a brand of excavator that is not showing, the chances are that your particular brand may be based on one of the brands that we do cover. For a recent example, IHI branded excavators have recently been incorporated into the KATO brand.

To find attachments to fit your excavator model, select a similar or equivalent model from a brand that closely resembles your own in specifications. Then check the model numbers. For example, if your model number is AA26, and the Hitachi ZX26 has same or similar specs to your machine, click on the ZX26 link to see compatible attachments*.

*NOTE: When ordering attachments you will have to furnish the brand and model number of your attachment to ensure correct fitment.

Excavator Model Numbers

The model numbers in our database have been stripped of the suffixes that denote varieties, accessories and/or model year. If your excavator model number is TXX205DR-7LC and our link is TXX205, use this model to find attachments to fit your machine.

On very rare occasions, a new iteration of a particular model may have grown in size/weight to the point that it jumps weight classes, and hence alters its attachment requirements. If this has happened, we will make a note of it.

Superseded Model Numbers

If you have an older excavator and your model number is missing from the list altogether, the chances are that it has been superseded by a newer model.

Like vehicle manufacturers, excavator makers will rarely (if ever) go down when numbering a new model. So if your excavator model is TXX230 and it's missing from our list, but there is a TXX235 or TXX240, there's a good chance that this is the model corresponding to yours*.

*NOTE: You will still have to give us your model number when ordering attachments, in case the newer model has changed specifications since yours was produced.

Weight Classes

Wedgelock has an internal weight class classification system that forms the basis for machine fitment. If your excavator cannot be paired with a model on our database, use the weight data below to gauge the attachments that will fit your machine.

Be aware that before Wedgelock will manufacture or ship any attachment, we will always ensure that it will fit your machine. So we will always need to know the make and model number of the carrier machine before completion of the transaction. In some  circumstances we may require measurements to be taken or additional specifications to be furnished.

Guide to approximate excavator weights in Wedgelock Weight Classes*

* This is only a guide. If your excavator model is not displayed on our model database, we will need to know your make and model of excavator before we can guarantee that an attachment will comply with its fitment requirements.
