Gensco Original HYDRAULIC HMAG MAGNET


Don't be fooled by imitations....

Gensco builds the “Original” Hydraulic Magnet. The HMAG is a combination scrap handling magnet with power supply installed in a rugged case on the magnet. A suitable hydraulic circuit, in terms of flow and pressure (and return line) is connected to the magnet. Most often a bucket / hammer or auxiliary circuit is readily available on the boom or stick. Breaking the hydraulic flow through the valve begins an automatic drop circuit through electronic circuitry located within the enclosure. No electric line goes to the magnet and there is no major installation required on the carrier. 

System Features:
The HMAG can be quickly disconnected freeing up the machine for other duty – and / or moved to another machine. A single system could then be quickly available for different users and sites within the company.  For companies with a fleet of machines, the hydraulic magnet offers a great deal of flexibility and efficiency. 

Suits companies in the rental industry, demolition and speciality contracting firms, transfer stations, railways and ports who may have a limited requirement for a magnet will find this ideal for their operations.  Available sizes: 28″, 36″, 40″, 46″ & 52″ – Skid Loader magnet system also available c/w custom drop nose quick attach boom…


Gensco SKIDMAG Skid Steer Scrap Magnet


Suitable for skid loaders and compact excavators

The SKIDMAG scrap magnet system is a unique combination of our heavy duty scrap handling magnet with power supply installed in a rugged steel enclosure on the magnet. An optional quick attach extended magnet boom can be supplied as a complete system.  The boom includes two hydralic lines and fittings to connect to the magnet system.  No electric line to the magnet is necessary and there is no installation of a generator or control to the machine other than a direct case drain port.  Breaking the hydraulic flow to the attachment begins an automatic drop circuit through electronic circuitry located within the enclosure on the magnet.  Great for companies with a fleet of machines working on various jobs and perhaps different locations, and do not wish or require a dedicated installation, the hydraulic magnet offers a great deal of flexibility and efficiency.

System Features:
• Easy to install magnet w/ chains, hoses, etc.
CANMAG 28" HMAG magnet
• SKIDMAG quick attach drop nose magnet boom
