Doosan Bobcat has extended its excavator quick coupler offering with the launch of a new hydraulic pin grabber coupler for attachments used on the seven models (from E25 up to the E55) in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.
Doosan Bobcat Europe, Middle East and Africa (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 up to the 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 E25 to E55 excavators.
The new quick coupler complements the existing full range of mechanical couplers from Bobcat including Klac and Lehnhoff systems, said a statement from Doosan Bobcat.
Bobcat excavators equipped with the factory-installed hydraulic coupler are now supplied as tailormade systems, ready to go from the start, it stated.
All controls are incorporated within the operator area, so there is no need for additional controllers, switches, displays, hoses and/or wire harnesses to be connected. The factory installed option is designed not to compromise machine efficiency, its robustness and overall performance, it added.
The key features 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 enures maximum breakout force and the system is essentially maintenance free, with few components for peace of mind," said a company spokesman.
"Powerful springs are activated in case of pressure loss to avoid any risk and reversibility is standard when the job requires it," he noted.
Important aspects include the increased safety and compliancy offered by a hydraulic pin grab coupler, which enables the operator to rapidly and safely change between non-hydraulic attachments from the comfort of the cab, said the spokesman.
The pins in the system are under constant pressure from the hydraulic cylinder ensuring the attachment is tightly gripped, even when there has been pin wear over longer term use, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
