Hillhead will see the introduction of
the Geith QR40 mechanical coupler
suitable for compact excavators
from 2 to 4 t.
The newly designed Geith
coupler with single visit, quick re-
lease, ease of use and low mainte-
nance is designed to speed up at-
tachment changes while maintaining
safety.
Some of the key features:
• Single visit quick coupler
• Ease of use and maintenance
• Visual and strong audible lock indicators
• Picks up fixed centre attachments
• Low tip radius to maximize breakout
force
• 3 year warranty on the frame
• Reversible
• Lift eye standard
An audible, distinct sound and two
visuals will confirm to the operator that
the attachment is properly engaged.
Two other mechanical couplers (one
for 1 to 2 t and 4 to 6 t excavators) will
complete the range and will be launched in
the 2nd half of 2014.
