New quick coupler for Bobcats

Bobcat has introduced a hydraulic pin grabber coupler for its E25 up to the E55 mini excavator models.

The new Bobcat hydraulic coupler is available both as a factory installed option and as an aftermarket product for use with all pin-on attachments for the E25 to E55 excavators. 

The new quick coupler complements the existing range of mechanical couplers from Bobcat including Klac and Lehnhoff systems.

Bobcat excavators equipped with the factory-installed hydraulic coupler are now supplied as tailor-made systems.  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. 

Features include a triple lock design, exceeding the ISO 13031 norm, and a wide variable pin centre to pick up multiple pin-on attachments. Powerful springs are activated in case of pressure loss to avoid any risk and reversibility is standard when the job requires it.

Bobcat says that there are no greasing requirements, very few moving parts and no maintenance requirements beyond the daily inspection.
