In the world of heavy machinery and earthmoving equipment, efficiency, safety, and reliability are paramount. That’s why at eiengineering, we’ve poured years of R&D into perfecting a Quick Coupler that meets and exceeds these critical criteria. Today, we’re excited to introduce you to our PowerLok Quick Coupler, designed to revolutionise the way you work with your attachments.
The Power of Adaptability
One of the standout features of the PowerLok Quick Coupler is its adaptability. Crafted with an adaptable pick-up system, it can seamlessly accommodate a diverse range of OEMs operating within the same weight class. On a 1.7 Tonne excavator, it can pick up attachments that vary in pin centre by up to 40mm. Whether you refer to it as a Quick Hitch or a Quick Coupler, three key elements define its effectiveness:
1. Safety First
The foundation of the PowerLok Quick Hitch’s design is safety. We understand the paramount importance of keeping your team secure on the worksite, which is why our Quick Hitch is built with five robust locking points. These include:
- Durable double-acting hydraulic cylinder
- Heavy-duty compression spring over the hydraulic cylinder
- Front pin lock with a natural tendency to the locked position
- Small heavy-duty compression spring back-up for the front pin lock
- Flow control check valve located in the base of the hydraulic cylinder
The PowerLok Quick Hitch is engineered as a true deadlocking hitch, ensuring that even in the event of a hydraulic cylinder failure, there’s no risk of losing an attachment. With just three moving parts, it can be disassembled and reassembled in record time, providing maximum safety and minimum downtime.
As an extra layer of safety and durability, we’ve engineered the Quick Hitch with a safety factor three times the maximum SWL of the machine. This ensures the highest level of safety.
2. Simplicity at Its Best
The PowerLok Quick Hitch offers a seamless, user-friendly operation that simplifies attachment changes. With a flick of a switch, the hitch releases the rear pin and then the front pin lock, allowing you to effortlessly pick up the next attachment. The front pin locks automatically as the tongue engages the rear pin, making the process swift and straightforward. It can be used in any position, whether horizontal or vertical. However, we recommend caution when releasing attachments in the crowd-out position unless it is intentional and the attachment is resting on the ground or in a supported position.
3. Unwavering Reliability
Reliability is the cornerstone of the PowerLok Quick Coupler. We’ve equipped it with a specially designed double-acting hydraulic cylinder featuring Hallite seals, renowned for their quality and trouble-free operation. Our commitment to quality is unwavering, which is why we offer a 3-year warranty on the PowerLok Quick Coupler main body and 12 months on all other parts including the hydraulic cylinder.
