Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions and Steelwrist announce collaboration

Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions and Steelwrist have entered into a cooperation for fully automatic work tool adapters for Rammer hydraulic rockbreakers*.

Designed in collaboration with Steelwrist, the Rammer Adapter Plates offer significant advantages in terms of efficiency, safety, and ease of use for hydraulic attachment changes.

The Rammer adapter plates allow fully automatic attachment changes, eliminating the need for manual intervention while minimizing leakages and pressure drops. No need to close valves, bleed the system or purge for trapped gases.

“Rammer rockbreakers are known for reliability and with the SQ system adapter kits engineered by Steelwrist we can ensure best possible performance and effectiveness also when using fully automatic quick couplers,” Jari Paajanen, product line manager at Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions, said.

The Rammer Adapter plate is ideal for operators who need to change between a rockbreaker and a bucket several times a day, as it allows switching between different hydraulic attachments in a few seconds without the need for the operator to leave the excavator cabin.

The new product provides faster attachment changes with minimised risks as the global demand for fully automatic quick coupler systems keeps increasing.

Time-saving attachment changes:

The Rammer Adapter facilitates a plug-and-play hydraulic quick coupler system, increasing uptime as the operator can connect and disconnect the attachment from the excavator cabin within seconds.

The Rammer Adapter Plates can reduce the time to switch between attachments by up to 10 minutes compared to manual changes, providing a quicker and more efficient process.


Changing hydraulic attachments without leaving the cabin not only saves time but also minimizes the risk of accidents and oil spillage, enhancing both safety and environmental concerns.


The features such as hose routing, component sizes, and specifications are engineered to reduce back pressures. Lower back pressures contribute to trouble-free and more productive operations by ensuring smoother hydraulic performance and minimizing potential system issues.

Premium components, light frame, and Qplus technology ensure up to 25 per cent higher flows.

Overall, the Rammer Adapter Plates not only streamline operations but also prioritize safety and reduce downtime in applications where continuous attachment changes are required.


Rammer Adapter plates suit for fully automatic quick couplers such as Steelwrist that are in compliance with Open-S – the open industry standard for fully automatic quick couplers.

Customers can order their new Rammer Performance Line rockbreaker with a matching adapter plate directly from their local Rammer dealer.  Adapter plates can also be purchased separately providing a versatile solution for operators who want to adapt their current hydraulic attachments to work with fully automatic quick coupler systems.
