Ransome Attachments finalized a deal with Cernos Oy, manufacturer of Cobra screening buckets, to become a distributor for the company.

Ransome Attachments will now add the Cobra screening bucket to its lineup of multi-functional attachments.

According to the company, the move is intended to complement the Gyru-Star compact screening bucket and bring the Cobra’s added crushing functionality to its customers on the heavier side of the market.

“The Gyru-Star is for topsoil screening with no crushing action, and it’s designed for compact machinery,” says Eric Ransome, owner of Ransome Attachments. “The Cobra fits both compact and heavy equipment and can screen and crush construction debris and ‘soft rock’ materials, including brick, sheet rock and asphalt for heavy industrial applications.”

According to the company, the Cobra can be adjusted for pure screening, which is ideal for topsoil, compost, mulch, peat and sand. While it’s designed for heavy-duty operations, it can be integrated with mini to full-sized excavators, wheel loaders, backhoes and telehandlers.

Ransome will offer a full line of Cobra models to fit various applications within the composting, topsoil, recycling, demolition, landscaping, pipeline and general construction markets. All Cobra models feature either a single or twin hydraulic drive with chain transmission, the company adds.

Cernos has been manufacturing this bucket in Finland for the past 26 years and has been primarily distributing it in Scandinavia. Under new management, the company is now expanding into new markets worldwide.
