CASE Construction Equipment is breaking new ground with the introduction of a new CASE S Series Multi-fit Coupler. By using a coupler system, contractors can transform their hydraulic excavators into a multi-tool carrier capable of carrying out a number of tasks all while staying in the comfort of the cab. This genuine twin-locking coupler is a fully automatic, hydraulic quick coupler that is proven to be lighter and safer than existing couplers on the market.
Lighter, stronger design
Made from durable and strong tensile steel-cast materials, the newly designed coupler is up to twenty percent lighter and stronger than comparable brands, which significantly improves machine performance while easing maneuverability. The universal design of the CASE S Series Multi-fit Coupler allows for great versatility. It is capable of working in both backhoe and face-shovel positions and has a large swing radius, which allows for increased digging and lifting power.
Along with its new lighter and stronger design, the CASE S Series Multi-fit Coupler’s most important feature is its safety design. The twin-locking system, which is equipped with two independent mechanical locks, prevents the inadvertent release of an attachment, which can cause damage to equipment, the environment or harm to operators.
The system secures both the front and rear attachments in the event of a hydraulic failure or power loss, for added operator safety. Additionally, the operator can visually confirm both front and rear pins are secure from inside the cab with the help of the unique patented Automatic Blocking System (ABS). One-way check valves are located in the coupler cylinder and solenoid valve to allow for full system pressure retention in the event of a hydraulic hose failure.
