The GRD70 grab cassette for tiltrotators requires no screwing or manual connection of hydraulics; the excavator operator can connect or disconnect the grab cassette in less than one minute, the company says.
It is designed for the company’s biggest tiltrotator, the EC233, and the Q-Safe 70 quick hitch. It has a gripping force of 2.2 metric tons and grab width of more than 3 feet. The unit joins the GRD20 grab cassette for Engcon EC214 and EC219 tiltrotators with the Q-Safe 60 quick hitch, along with the GRD10 for the Engcon EC209 tiltrotator and the Q-Safe 45 and Q-Safe 50 quick hitches.
As with the smaller models, the operator can connect or disconnect the GRD70 grab cassette in about one minute by activating the lock function with a hand maneuver to connect or disconnect the hydraulics, and simultaneously attach or release the grab cassette.
