Helac Corporation Extends Powertilt Product Line
Helac Corporation, a manufacturer of construction equipment attachments, has a new option for the PowerTilt tilting coupler. The new hydraulic pin grab coupler option provides more choices in addition to the existing half hitch, universal (Wain-Roy/CP), and brand specific couplers. As with the other options, the pin grab coupler still allows the PowerTilt to rotate up to 180 degrees side to side. The variable pin center design allows easy pick up and change of the widest range of OEM attachments.
The new PowerTilt hydraulic pin grab coupler option makes it easier for the operator to change attachments from the security and comfort of the cab. The coupler provides both a front and rear safety locking mechanism to secure both attachment pins. No separate, manually inserted, safety pin required. The powerful spring activated safety lock system works in all types of severe and dirty environments.
Curling the attachment guarantees it is in a safe position for engagement and release. In the event of improper attachment connection, the front locking clasp retains the attachment to prevent unexpected separation. In case of hydraulic cylinder or hose failure, the rear sliding hook maintains connection to the attachment rear pin, again preventing unexpected separation.
With the ease of changing attachments from the cab, the hydraulic coupler can save an operator considerable machine operating time compared to a manual mount. The operator has the ability to reverse buckets to shovel mode at anytime to excavate against walls, under pipes and other terrains.
The hydraulic pin grab coupler option is available for 5 to 30 ton (4.5 to 27 t) excavators and loader backhoes. There are 18 PowerTilt pin grab coupler combinations to choose from.
