Geith Tilting Coupler for Excavators and Backhoe Loaders

Geith Tilting Coupler for Excavators and Backhoe Loaders

Designed for use with excavators and backhoe loaders weighing between 6 and 26 tons, the new Geith tilting coupler allows operators to more precisely position the bucket or attachment without having to reposition the machine – increasing overall productivity and versatility. The tilting coupler provides up to 180 degrees of side-to-side rotation – depending on the model.

Featuring four independent locking components, the hydraulic quick coupler configuration meets current and proposed safety standards (ISO/DIS 13031).

The front lock retains the attachment in the event of improper rear pin connection while the rear lock and mechanical spring system retain the attachment in a working position should a loss of hydraulic power occur. Unlike gravity-type systems, the front and the rear spring-retained locks maintain high functionality in severe and dirty environments.

Additional safety features include a curved engaging plate and a hydraulic cylinder check valve, as well as the “curl to release” control system that provides a safe process for attachment engagement and release.

The variable pin centre design allows operators to pick up and change between a variety of OEM attachments from the comfort and security of their cabs. Operators also have the ability to reverse bucket orientation when working in confined spaces, such as along walls or under pipes.

Why invest money in an intelligent MRF (4.0)?

Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.

When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
