Safety first

Kinshofer offers the X-LOCK Coupler, a safe and quick solution for exchanging excavator attachments on the job site.

KINSHOFER web

The tool allows the operator to exchange attachments safely from within the cab and features a wedge-locking principal, which allows the coupler to connect to the attachment in two separate places, where competitors only feature one locking point. The X-Lock coupler easily pairs with buckets, rippers, rakes and mechanical grabs as well as a wide variety of demolition, recycling and railroad attachments.

Unlike the competition, the wedge-locking principal connects the coupler to the attachment in two separate places and provides a two-and-a-half-fold locking force compared to a pendular jaw quick hitch. This constant applied working pressure continuously readjusts the wedge, keeping both pins firmly against the quick hitch.

Two pressure relief valves operate the wedge and ensures the hydraulic circuit is not over pressurised and greatly minimises wear in the locking area between the coupler and the attachment. A rear lock safety device ensures the wedge does not retract and disconnect the attachment if hydraulic failure occurs.
