With the demand for productivity constantly rising, the need for quick change of work tool is almost continuous means the importance of quick couplers is just increasing. And of course, it has to be done safely and efficiently.

All Steelwrist quick couplers are based on the S-Type (symmetrical) open standard. There are many reasons for this, but the compact design, light weight, and robustness of the S-type couplers are reasons for this. Compared with the “pin-grabber,” there is no risk of picking up a work tool not designed for the specific coupler, which leads to increased safety. And, the total height of the S-Type coupler is significantly lower than the pin-grabber.

The Steelwrist SQ system is designed to be able to connect with other brands using the same type of oil connection systems, the Open-S standard. Machine operators and contractors can more easily choose quick couplers, tilt rotators and work tools from different manufacturers, and be confident that they will function together. With Steelwrist SQ technology, users can change between hydraulic powered work tools such as breaker, crusher, shear, and grapple as well as mechanical work tools in only seconds – all without leaving the cabin.

These features have been enhanced with Steelwrist Qplus, with higher flow, more uptime, and improved serviceability among the main benefits for the operator. With Steelwrist Qplus, the flow area measures up to 37% more compared to competitor products, depending on coupling size. Steelwrist Qplus sealing technology is completely new and significantly more durable, providing more hours in operation before sealings have to be changed. Changing seals in Steelwrist Qplus couplings is done fast and easy without need for proprietary and complicated tools.
