Wedgelock Coupler Adds “Instant Safety” to Attachments

 

Norco Attachments is introducing North American equipment dealers, rental businesses and contractors to a world-renowned quick coupler system billed as the “the safest coupler on the planet.”

Norco’s Wedgelock Quick Coupler adds instant safety on the jobsite with its patented back-up locking system, known as the I-Lock™, that engages the front attachment pin without requiring a machine operator to activate the main locking mechanism.

Engaging with the front attachment pin automatically when the attachment is connected, the system also provides a built-in time-out that re-engages the I-Lock if the attachment is not removed in a timely manner after the coupler is unlocked to disconnect. The coupler is operated hydraulically and is known for its independent, initial and instant safety system.

The Wedgelock coupler’s high strength construction increases its wearability and reduces weight, helping to maximize product performance and reliability. Its low profile design ensures optimum breakout force and power at the bucket tip. Pin center variations are accommodated automatically and lifting eyes are fitted as standard, ensuring safe lifting capability.

Wedgelock couplers are available for all popular excavator makes and models from 2,2 t mini-excavators up to 90 t mine shovels.
