I would highly recommend McQuaid for the supply of rock breaker equipment and we look forward to working with them again on future projects.

I can strongly recommend Mcquaid Engineering, they made me one (a rock breaker boom) and I got it shipped out here to Nigeria, i would be lost without it very handy saves so much downtime.

After many hours looking for a new supplier for our waste handling attachments, we decided to purchase a selector grab from McQuaid Engineering. From the outset, communication has been key to both deciding on the purchase, to following up calls to make sure everything was ok. I spent hours calling various companies, not getting calls back or speaking with people who did not seem willing to sell their products. Paul from McQuaid was always available to talk, advise and make sure everything went to plan. Delivery was fast, received the attachment the same week payment was made and we put the grab straight to work. We’ve been running it now for 4 weeks without issue, the grab is well made, incredible strong and built-in design features like shielded blade bolts are nice finishing touches. Highly recommend Mc Quaid, will be purchasing from them again.

Great company to work with, specially in the early steps of a new project. Personalized service.

Mauricio Lema , MARIENCO - La Paz, Bolivia

Reliable, innovative and reasonably priced.

Aaron Proctor, Proctor Construction

Very happy with grabs look and performance. Grab is for hire use on a Takeuchi TB175 wheeled machine. Very happy with service and quick turnaround from McQuaid engineering.

The CM6000 hydraulic breaker (manufactured by McQuaid Engineering) was commissioned at Galmoy mine in September 2008. The unit has been in operation on a 24/7 shift rota, it’s primary duty is to break zinc and lead ore down to a manageable size to enter the operational jaw crusher. The CM6000 has proven itself to be an excellent machine which is user friendly and requires minimal maintenance. I would have no hesitation in recommending the CM6000 to any perspective buyer.

P.F. Small, Linden Mining

We are very pleased with our new McQuaid selector grabs, the whole purchase and delivery was very personal and professional. The grab is working well on the excavator and reducing time and cost.

John Griffin, Griffin Bros – Co Kerry

I’ve been using it for a number of different jobs since getting it. We’ve lifted timber for sawing, lifted scrap from an old house, lifted stones onto a wall and pulled down wind bushes. It’s great for lifting kerbs, it lifted five at a time! It’s a powerful job with stone walls too. With a digger bucket you’re dropping the stones and having to pick them up three or four times. This picks it up first time perfect. It’s a great article. I should have had one years ago. (MT40 Mechanical Grapple)

Terex Material Processing and McQuaid Engineering Ltd have a long standing relationship for the supply of rock breaker boom systems by MQ to Terex. For more than a decade MQ and Terex engineers have worked together to develop solutions to integrate rock breaker boom systems onto Terex’s Powerscreen and Finlay range of mobile crushers. Our engineers work together on a regular basis finding comprehensive conclusions on complex and complicated engineering projects. This has resulted in a world class product when integrating Terex mobile crushers with MQ rock breaker booms.

Mazal International BV has purchased several rock breaker boom units from McQuaid Engineering. Paul, Amanda and the team are very professional. The rock breaker booms are operating well and are meeting all expectations. The booms are user friendly and require minimal maintenance. We can recommend McQauid Engineering booms.

Excellent service from initial enquiry to delivery on site, could not ask for better.

Gordon Black , J B Black (Ayrshire) Ltd

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Using it for trees at the minute, but it will lift stones and all too. It’s a great grab. (MT40 Mechanical Grapple)
