Engcon has launched production of the GRD70 grab cassette.

Engcon has for some time been alone in producing a unique type of grab cassette. With a simple maneuver that requires no screwing or manual connection of hydraulics, the excavator operator can connect or disconnect the grab cassette in less than one minute, according to the manufacturer.

Next in the Series

The GRD20 grab cassette for Engcon EC214 and EC219 tiltrotators with the Q-Safe 60 quick hitch was launched first. Then came the GRD10 for the Engcon EC209 tiltrotator and the Q-Safe 45 and Q-Safe 50 quick hitches.

Now it's time for series production of the GRD70 grab cassette for Engcon's biggest tiltrotator, the EC233, and the Q-Safe 70 quick hitch. It will be a powerful grab with the gripping force of 2.4 tons (2.2 t) and grab width of more than 3 ft. (.9 m).

Making Larger Excavators Even More Efficient

As with the smaller models, the operator connects or disconnects the GRD70 grab cassette in about one minute by activating the lock function with a simple hand maneuver to connect or disconnect the hydraulics and simultaneously attach or release the grab cassette. It's the ultimate solution for those who want the ability to quickly and easily disconnect the grab cassette when it's no longer needed.

The EC233 with the GRD70 grab cassette will be available in the United States and Canada in July 2019.
