(Technical data)


The bucket is attached to the digger, and two hydraulic hoses are connected.

The brush fits in a recess at the back of the bucket.

For use, it is folded out and starts to rotate automatically when fully extended.

To stop the brush and fold it back in, the hydraulic flow is reversed.


Seeker has been available on the market for over 10 years, and has proven

itself to be an effective and reliable implement.


The bucket bottom is flat, to improve usability during refilling.


Seeker can also be fitted with extra brushes. Two separate brush elements

 are easily attached to the main brush, using a bayonet coupling.

The brush set becomes about 1 m wide, and works effectively and cheaply

 as a cleaning up tool. It is very useful when cleaning grass surfaces.

Another accessory is the cable winder, which is attached to the main brush

and used to collect scrap cable.

When working on and near railroads where the risk of damaging buried cables, we have demanded that the contractors use a digger with a suitable bucket, having access to a

cable brush.

It has been established that the brush bucket SEEKER by Treman satisfies our demands,

and we can recommend it warmly for work resembling ours.

In connection with contractor work involving cables and pipes, and considering the economic and technical problems resulting from damage to such infrastructure, we take a very favourable view of the development of damage-preventive technology during the later years.

After reviewing the market for several years, we can confirm our recommendation of the SEEKER product.

SEEKER represents innovative thinking, based on "uncovering by brushing", which is an effective and practical solution to a complex problem in connection with digging where

cables and pipes are at risk.

Testing, field trials and practical use have all given satisfactory results, which means that

the product satisfies fully our demands for preventive maintenance.

Our clients have been very satisfied, and we are being offered more contracts concerning cable

digging and macadam work.

SEEKER is a simple and effective tool. Work along cables, as well as along rails and points,

becomes safer, quicker, simpler and more fun.

The ground crew has less digging to do, and can help with other things. In some cases, the digger

can handle all the cable work himself.

SEEKER works very well during refilling, thanks to its flat bottom. Another positive thing is that

the bucket can be shared among several diggers.

I am very happy with the bucket and can recommend it to anyone working in macadam or among

buried cables and pipes.

We have also bought the Painaway back treatment board from the same company, to treat our

sore backs, and we are very pleased with it.

We consider both the bucket and the board good investments.
