Paladin Attachments has introduced the JRB Triad 416 cast coupler for wheel loaders. Its cast design gives the attachment added strength and durability while also reducing the overall weight by up to 32 percent over an equivalent fabricated coupler, according to the manufacturer.

In this design, the coupler offset has been reduced to provide up to a 44 percent improvement in breakout force impact, improving the performance and productivity of the coupler system. The distinctive design optimizes the weight distribution of the coupler, bringing the center of gravity closer to the machine for better load stabilization and management.

While lighter than an equivalent fabricated coupler, the JRB Triad’s carbon steel casting design gives it 30 percent more strength and up to 11 percent more flex prior to yielding than a fabricated coupler. The new design also features additional visibility in the center of the coupler for improved load management and safer operations when using fork attachments. Operator visibility of the hydraulic plunger aids in proper attachment engagement. The JRB Triad is available for a variety of popular OEM machine models.
