Paladin Construction Group expands its quick couplers line

Supplier News

The line works on most excavators, mini-excavators, wheel loaders and loader backhoes.

| April 4, 2011

DEXTER, MI – Paladin Construction Group (PCG) has unveiled two new quick coupler systems. Adding the new JRB PowerLatch and Bradco Mini-Excavator Coupler to PCG’s line of quick couplers provides customers with one single-source solution to change attachments on most excavators, mini-excavators, wheel loaders and loader backhoes.

A quick coupler manufacturer for more than 25 years under the JRB brand, Paladin Construction Group has teamed with Miller UK Limited in North America to offer customers a quick coupler line for all carriers in combination with its eight attachment brands. These brands are: JRB, Bradco, Sweepster, CP, CustomWorks, FFC, Harley and McMillen. In addition to these brands, all JRB and Bradco couplers are compatible with most attachment and machine brands.

The new JRB PowerLatch, designed by Miller, is engineered with the Automatic Blocking System (ABS). It features backup mechanical locks on both the front and rear attachment pins that are independent of the machine’s hydraulic locking and operating system. The ABS mechanical backup safety system automatically locks both pins so coupler engagement is maintained even if a hydraulic failure occurs. Attachments can only be removed under operator control when they are in a safe, curled position.

The Bradco Mini-Excavator Coupler maintains the same unique Miller design features as the JRB PowerLatch and is available in two versions, featuring a compact design. The cost-effective manual version uses a manual locking pin to maintain attachment engagement and worker safety on all mini-excavator models.

For five-ton mini-excavators and above, the fully automatic version replaces the manual safety pin with hydraulic operation and includes hydraulic check valves that prevent attachment disengagement if hydraulic failure occurs.
