Dromone says its cast-steel, hydraulic quick coupler weighs about 30 percent less than excavator quick couplers with fabricated steel bodies.
Dromone says its cast-steel, hydraulic quick coupler weighs about 30 percent less than excavator quick couplers with fabricated steel bodies. A range of sizes to fit everything from backhoes to large hydraulic excavators offer designs to minimize extension of the bucket-curl radius and preserve digging force. A hydraulic circuit locks the coupler from the cab and the locking mechanism is always visible from the cab allowing the operator to visually confirm that the coupler is fully engaged. A Dromone coupler sized for a 16-metric-ton excavator, weighs 360 pounds and carriers a manufacturer suggested retail price of $4,000.
Geith G3 hydraulic quick coupler features four independent safety components, and the double locking, fully automatic quick coupler configuration complies with the impending safety standards set forth by ISO/FDIS 13031:2013(E).
Smart Digging Systems components for excavators include new pin-on buckets, coupler buckets, the Case Multi-Fit Coupler, and the SmartFit bucket teeth system.
