Switching buckets has never been easier with the new John Deere hydraulic coupler (16GE23) for compact excavators. Operators are no longer required to exit the cab to switch buckets, so site clearing can continue with high productivity and minimal interruptions. The hydraulic coupler is designed for 35G, 50G and 60G excavators, and is compatible with the ever-expanding lineup of John Deere Worksite Pro attachments.

The hydraulic coupler offers many key features that help drive additional productivity from an excavator. Most notable is the wedge bar locking system that compensates for wear and keeps the coupler joint tight. The wedge-style bucket pickup enables compact excavators to maintain breakout forces by keeping weight down, and operators can easily switch to other attachments, such as hydraulic hammers, with an adaptive bracket. The coupler is activated using a rocker switch. Once activated, curling the bucket unlocks the coupler.

“The hydraulic coupler optimizes job site performance and productivity by simplifying the bucket-switching process, so projects are no longer interrupted by a complicated, manual attachment-changing procedure,” said Mark Wall, excavator product marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “This coupler was designed with smart features to quickly change attachments and keep operations up and running without enduring a long-drawn-out process.”

The hydraulic coupler works with a variety of Worksite Pro buckets and attachments, and is compatible with most competitive models.
