The new SQ50 and XO2 from Steelwrist
Steelwrist extends the quick coupler and
tilt rotator offering with SQ50, a fully automatic high flow and Open-S
compliant solution for
The new range of SQ50 quick couplers and tiltrotators is targeted toward 7t to 13t excavators. All models feature Steelwrist SQ, a high-performing fully automatic oil connection technology, used in quick couplers and tiltrotators on excavators to connect hydraulic work tools.
Outstanding flow characteristics and competitive building height and weight are significant advantages of the SQ50, which meets the specifications of the Open-S standard for fully automatic quick couplers.
With the introduction of SQ50, Steelwrist’s Qplus technology has been updated to allow for even higher flows. Adding another 20% to flow capacity allows users to run high-flow work tools on mid-size excavators.
“The SQ50 fully automatic quick couplers and tiltrotators allows us to change the game in the growing 10-ton excavator segment,” says Stefan Stockhaus, Steelwrist CEO.
In addition, Steelwrist has redesigned the X12 and X14 tiltrotators with a new top and attachment coupler, making it possible to upgrade from S50 to SQ50, even if the customer did not include SQ in the initial order. Installing SQ on the top and bottom sides of the tiltrotator will allow for rapid change between hydraulic work tools. By using SQ, tiltrotator work tools can be made less expensive.
The latest addition to Steelwrist’s SQ line—the SQ90 quick coupler—will make its North American debut at Conexpo.
All Steelwrist SQ products follow the global Open-S industry standard for fully automatic couplers for excavators, which gives machine operators and contractors around the world freedom to combine quick couplers, tiltrotators, and work tools from different manufacturers. The common standard also makes it easier for industry manufacturers to continue competing with performance and functionality, and still offer customers compatibility.
“The global Open-S industry standard is good for both the machine owner and the industry as a whole,” Stockhaus says. “It strives to give the machine owner the freedom to choose what solution to buy and the manufacturers to focus on developing features that enhance performance and functionality of their products.”
tiltrotator range with X02
The installation ratio for tiltrotators on the smallest excavators is starting to grow globally. In response, Steelwrist is now introducing the new X02, a tiltrotator suitable for 1.5t to 2.5t machines. The X02 is accompanied by a complete range of work tools resulting in increased efficiency and versatility which also convert the smallest excavators into true tool carriers.
The X02 is positioned between the smallest TCX tilt coupler for machines below 2t, and the X04 tiltrotator for excavators from 2.5t to 4t. Again, the focus with X02 has been to make a fully casted product with best strength-weight ratio and low building height.
The X02 tiltrotator is accompanied by a complete set of Steelwrist S30 work tools, such as grading, digging, cable/trenching and v-ditch bucket, asphalt cutter, and ripper. Last fall, a multi grapple was added to turn the excavator into an efficient and versatile tool carrier that can perform work in a wide range of applications.
“The X02 is a fantastic combination of innovation and robustness which customers have been waiting for,” Stockhaus says.
