Paladin Attachments has introduced the new JRB Nexus cast multi pick-up coupler for wheel loaders. While lighter than an equivalent fabricated coupler, the 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 coupler offset also has been reduced to provide up to a 26 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, according to the manufacturer.
The JRB Nexus is designed to pick up both ISO and 416 attachments and features replaceable ISO pins and 416 collars to extend the life of the coupler while maintaining a tighter fit throughout the life of the coupler. The new coupler design also features 167 sq. in. (1,077 sq cm) of 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 Nexus is available for a variety of popular OEM machine models.
