The VRS from power hand was put through its paces at an open day last October
Traditional manual methods of removing high value materials from ELVs can be labour intensive and costly, in many cases making the process economically unviable. Although a four-tine scrap grab will allow extraction of the engine, much of the added value materials are left behind, resulting in the end of life vehicle dismantler missing out on great potential profit.
Like a vulture would dissect its prey, the VRS clamp arms pin down the vehicle to allow the grapple to systematically pull the valuable materials away from the lower value vehicle body shell. The knife blades on the clamp arms of the VRS 200 allow engine and transmission assemblies to be split from the engine block.
