D-Lock Hydraulic Coupler

The simple design of the D-Lock Hydraulic combined with the world leading safety features makes the D-Lock Hydraulic the safest coupler on the market today. The D-Lock Coupler is dual locking, meaning attachments remain securely engaged on both pins in the event of loss of engagement force.
Compliant with Australian standard AS4772-2008, European standard EN474 and all major contractor policies. Compact design with only two hoses, minimal moving parts, no greasing and no complicated operating sequence to follow are just a few of the features which put the D-Lock at the forefront of coupler performance worldwide.

  • Highly visible front lock indicator
  • Safety system does not rely on gravity
  • Dual pin lock – Locks both front and rear pins in the event of loss of engagement force
  • Unlock process is designed to release only when the operator intends to do so, in a controlled and safe manner
  • Simple yet safe unlock procedure eliminates accidental releases
  • Only requires two hydraulic lines
  • Compact design – Improving machine performance
  • No greasing or lubrication required

SmartFlow Coupler

Fully Hydraulic Coupling System SmartFlow

The fully hydraulic quick coupling system SmartFlow turns the exchange of attachments into a very easy, safe and fast game. The driver changes the attachments including hydraulic connections by simply pushing a button in the drivers cabin. Because of the separate locking of the valve blocks, there are no forces transferred to the quick coupler, guaranteeing durability.

NOX Tiltrotator

Turn efficiency in your direction!

With our Tiltrotator, your attachments can be rotated by 360° continuously and tilted by 50° to both sides. Therefore, the efficiency of your machine will be increased dramatically as time and resources will be saved.

Combined with a quick change system and various attachments this will create the highest efficiency at any construction site. With using the NOX Tiltrotator, you are not only reducing the need for repositioning your excavator and thus sparing the ground from damage (especially when it comes to landscaping tasks), but you will also speed up your work.

NOX Tilt Torque

A tiltrotator with cylinders only provides a limited tilt angle and has no constant tilt torque.
360° continuous rotation and 2 x 50° tilt angle turn your machine into a multi-functional all-rounder, increasing the flexibility and efficiency of all your attachments.

The cylinderless, extremely flat drive provides for a very low height as well as a narrow width. An elliptic piston generates a high and constant tilt torque thanks to its single gearing. The robust cast housing features a high stability due to a special material alloy, guaranteeing a long life even under the toughest conditions. The extremely rugged and strong drive for difficult tasks has a proper greasing and is thus low-maintenance.

NOX Holding Torque

A tiltrotator with cylinders only provides a limited tilt angle and has no constant tilt torque.
The NOX Tiltrotators are equipped with counter-balance valves, providing firm load holding in the desired position.
