The quick coupler range from Bobcat has been extended with new Mechanical Pin Grabber systems available for the mini-excavator line-up. They are said to offer increased comfort and productivity, with a single-visit design to make changing between attachments quick and easy.
It can also be reversed to enable operators to work closer to walls or under pipes, and the hook-shaped design ensures that buckets cannot fall when unhooked. A perpendicular lock system increases the safety credentials of the system.
There are no greasing requirements and few moving parts, requiring just a daily inspection. The open design also stops mud from getting trapped in the coupler and blocking the mechanism.
