We’re proud to say that our unrivalled expertise, terrific product range and relentless focus on customer service have earned us an enviable reputation for excellence – and as worthy partners for your projects.

We’re also innovators! It was Worsley who pioneered the use of excavator-mounted crushing and screening buckets in the UK through our market-leading Dig A Crusher and Dig A Screener brands, since rebranded to MB.

In 2007 we extended our range with the REMU range of screening buckets and in 2011 we became the exclusive UK distributor for the Dutch-built Rotar range of attachments.

The Lehnhoff Variolock Quickcoupler System was added to the range in late 2013, which is ideal to work with our growing range of attachments. More recently we expanded our range even further to add Hammers from Montabert and Magnets from Dynaset. These new products will all compliment our existing range of hydraulic attachments.

Who better to talk to about your next project’s challenges than the UK’s Leading Attachment Specialist. Why not drop in and see us to talk over your needs – and maybe see some powerful possible solutions in action?
