Quickly change attachments on most excavators, mini-excavators, wheel loaders and loader backhoes with Paladin’s JRB PowerLatch and Bradco Mini-Excavator Coupler.

The JRB PowerLatch is engineered with the patented Automatic Blocking System (ABS), featuring 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 is available in two versions. 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. 800.428.2538, paladinconstructiongroup.com
