Case launches hydraulic coupler for wheel loaders

The hydraulic coupler is available for use on Case 521E, 621E, 721E and 821E wheel loaders and all configurations of those wheel loader models.Case’s Australian spokesperson told ConstructionIndustryNews.net the new coupler was yet to be confirmed for sale in Australia.The manufacturer said operators doing road and bridge work would find switching from buckets for material handling to brooms for cleanup is quick and easy. Case also said switching from forks to a boom to position a manhole and back to a bucket for backfilling would speed productivity on sewer and water projects. Perhaps most significantly, Case said all these attachment changes could be done easily from the seat of the cab.“The hydraulic coupler is manufactured to Case specifications and is fully supported by Case dealers across North America,” said Case brand marketing manager Mitchell Blake. “Being supported by 375 Case dealers provides our customers the uptime assurance they expect.” Blake noted that the coupler is compatible with Case rapid-fill buckets, which feature a five-degree angle to the floor plate for easier transition of material to the back of the bucket for increased production. He said the new hydraulic quick coupler accepted an array of attachments, including the most popular wheel loader attachments such as general-purpose buckets, forks, four-in-one buckets, scrap grapple buckets, side dump buckets, brooms and jib booms. Case says the new coupler maintains compatibility with current buckets and attachments, and is now available through US Case dealers as a factory-installed option or as a dealer installation to retrofit machines in the field.
