Guide about Attachments for demolition and recycling


The Guide about Attachments for demolition and recycling is created with two main objectives: produce a simple and descriptive publication in question-answer format and give a general overview of the attachments, explaining their basic characteristics, functionalities, general requirements, how this equipment should be managed, how to use them in safe working conditions, and the regulatory framework that is applicable.

This descriptive guide is intended to serve as a reference document for professionals to these areas, especially contractors and end-users who carry out activities related to demolition and/or recycling.

This publication was produced by the European Demolition Association Secretariat, with the contributions and collaboration of the members of the working group on Attachments.

Thanks to the collaboration of the national associations, this guide is now also available in the following languages: English, Spanish, French and Russian.

Apart from this publication, EDA has also elaborated other visual and educational materials in the form of the following video and these illustrations.
