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 up to the E55 models.
The new quick coupler complements the existing full range of mechanical couplers from Bobcat including Klac and Lehnhoff systems.
Bobcat excavators equipped with the factory-installed hydraulic coupler are now supplied as tailormade systems, ready to go from the start. 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.
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. The compact design enures maximum breakout force and the system is essentially maintenance free, with few components for peace of mind. Powerful springs are activated in case of pressure loss to avoid any risk and reversibility is standard when the job requires it.
With the pin grabber coupler, the operator can operate the bucket in both the normal position and in the reverse position, without any modification or extra components, to excavate against walls and under pipes for greater flexibility. The pin grab concept allows the operator to connect to a widely available range of pin-on attachments for greater versatility.
