Automatic quick coupler system for excavators

Change between various mechanical and hydraulic attachments from inside the cab!

OilQuick is an automatic quick coupler system for excavators, which allows hydraulic work tools to be connected and disconnected from the drivers cab. The operator can change between various work tools within a few seconds, such as a hydraulic hammer, steel or concrete shears, sorting grapple, hydraulic magnet, compactor, sorting bucket, tilt bucket or tiltrotator.

OQ LockSupport

OilQuick LockSupport (OQLS) is an advanced, user-friendly driver support for safe and secure attachment switching on excavators. OQLS is available for all nine sizes of OilQuick fully automatic quick couplers.

For safe attachment changes

Nowadays modern excavators are equipped with hydraulic quick couplers and use a number of buckets and attachments, which in many cases are switched several times per hour and day. There is always an element of risk when switching buckets and attachments. Dropped and swinging buckets can accidentally cause either severe personal injury or death. The reason for dropped buckets in most cases is driver-related and can depend on many factors including work stress, non standardised lock manoeuvring (buttons and controls with different functions, different placement from machine to machine), difficulty in determining whether the attachment is aligned correctly and uncertainty in the position of the locking bolts. OQLS minimizes all these problems and gives the operator safe and secure support for the right decisions when switching buckets and attachments.

OQLS provides the following benefits:

  • Mindful, controlled connection process.
  • Sensor detection of attachment pins and locking cylinder position
  • Automatic activation of the machine’s hydraulics.
  • The system logs all events as well as the last 32 events in chronological order.

The right tool always ready for the job

  • Change between various work tools within a few seconds!
  • Increased versatility and efficiency No oil spills, saving both money and the environment. No messy hose couplings.
  • Saves the knees and back of the driver when unnecessary jumps in and out of the cab is avoided.
  • The OilQuick system will not only make your excavator but also your company more flexible, competitive and cost effective.

OIlquick Hydraulic locking Ireland

For a backlash-free attachment and optimal safety the OilQuick-quick coupler system requires a hydraulic locking with full system pressure, free return to the tank and one lock switch in the cab with dual controls.

In many cases, the excavator comes factory-equipped with a CE approved locking hydraulic systems that satisfy our requirements. But in cases where this may not apply, OilQuick offers an optimal hydraulics lock solution. OilQuick hydraulic lock kit is available as an option.

OIlquick Lubrication connector Ireland

A connector developed to handle lubrication of attachments in the best possible way.

The unique aspect of the connector is that it has an integrated return for the grease, so that when you disconnect a tiltrotator and connect a bucket, the grease goes back to the return so that the overflow valve is not activated. An option for all sizes of coupler.
