Maintain digging power, eliminate pin-pounding and perform fast, effective attachment changes. Quick coupler excavator attachments are available in both mechanical and hydraulic models.
WEDGEBOLT vs PIN-GRABBER COUPLERS
Excavator quick coupler attachments are designed to dig based on a specific bucket curl or rotation. Pin grabbing couplers create a space between the end of the stick and the bucket. This space can be as much as 8 to 13 inches. This results in a loss of digging power by as much as 25%! The larger the machine, the greater the loss in breakout force.
“Everytime I rolled my pin-grabber back, it would hit the curl cylinder. I removed my pin-grabber and put a WedgeBolt on the end of my Gehl 503Z. What a difference! It made it feel and act like a totally different machine. It gave me noticeably more digging power, plus it lightened up my front end.”
