Locked on securely with Volvo’s latest hydraulic quick coupler

The Volvo hydraulic quick coupler with universal pin-type grabber is designed for use on Volvo’s EC35D compact excavator and ECR35D and ECR40D reduced radius compact excavators, creating a more versatile and efficient machine, one that is in line with the latest safety CE regulations and ISO standards.

Locked on securely with Volvo’s latest hydraulic quick couplerThe quick coupler allows the operator to quickly and easily connect to a full range of compatible Volvo attachments without needing to leave the cab, as well as alternating between regular and front-shoveling positions. The red locking indication gives the operator a clear visual reassurance that the attachment has been locked. It is securely fastened with front and rear pin locking and a hydraulic safety valve to maintain pressure.

Maintaining a competitive break-out force, the Volvo hydraulic quick coupler helps to achieve high levels of productivity. Designed with a low building height in mind and a lifting eye, the coupler helps to ensure the utilization of the full capacity of the compact excavator.

 The selection of compatible buckets includes Volvo digging buckets, fixed ditch buckets, tilt-able ditch buckets, breakers and hydraulic thumb.
