New quick coupler for Bobcat excavators
By Steve Ducker13 April 2017
Doosan Bobcat EMEA has extended its excavator quick coupler offering with the launch of a new hydraulic pin grabber coupler for attachments used on the seven Bobcat compact excavators from the E25 to E55 models.
The new Bobcat hydraulic coupler is available both as a factory installed option and as an aftermarket product for use with all the pin-on fitting attachments for the excavator range. It complements the existing full range of mechanical couplers from Bobcat including Klac and Lehnhoff.
Key features and benefits of the new quick coupler include its triple lock design for greater safety, exceeding the ISO 13031 norm and complying with all safety standards in the industry in Europe and the UK.
There is a wide variable pin centre, to pick up multiple pin-on attachments. A robust, yet compact design ensures maximum breakout force and the system is essentially maintenance free.
Powerful springs are activated in case of pressure loss to avoid any risk and reversibility is standard when the job requires it.
The operator can change non-hydraulic attachments without leaving their seat. The company says this means more comfort for the operator as well as higher productivity, because the attachments can be changed faster.
