Incorporating a "new concept" in quick couplers for excavators, the JRB VersaLoc handles multi-pin spreads and various pin diameters, allowing the operator to change out a large variety of attachments in seconds without leaving the excavator's cab. Additionally, the VersaLoc is designed to compensate traditional force loss by creating a lower offset. The repositioned offset results in better breakout force. The VersaLoc's reduced weight also allows for more force being available to the attachment. For safety, the new coupler from Paladin's JRB brand has a patent-pending detent lock on the stick pin that retains the attachment, and a pilot-operated check valve to ensure the cylinder is locked in the case of hydraulic pressure loss. Accommodating various hook widths, pin spreads and pin diameters, VersaLoc is available for Class 25 to 100 applications.
