Steelwrist adds SQ90 to the range of fully automatic quick couplers
The global demand for fully automatic coupler systems continues to grow in both the demolition and construction industries. Today Steelwrist introduce the SQ90, so far the biggest model in the range of SQ Auto Connection quick couplers. The SQ90 is targeted toward excavators up to 70 tons in the demolition industry.
After the very successful SQ Auto Connection quick coupler launch in 2017, the range today includes SQ60, SQ65, SQ70, SQ70/55 and SQ80. It is now time to introduce the biggest SQ model in the range so far – the SQ90. Steelwrist SQ couplers are appreciated by customers for the increased safety and ability to change hydraulic-powered work tools in seconds without leaving the cab. The addition of the SQ90 coupler meets the demand from the demolition industry, where many and fast work tool changes are common.
“The Steelwrist SQ Auto Connection quick couplers have been appreciated by the customers from day one on. In the demolition industry with its frequent work tool changes, it is all about using the right tool for the right job at the right time. SQ allows operator and machine to work continuously at all times and work safety increases when operators can easily change and use the best tool for the job”, says Stefan Stockhaus, CEO of Steelwrist AB.
Steelwrist SQ products compliant with the Open-S standard
SQ90 as well as all other Steelwrist SQ products follow the global Open-S industry standard for fully automatic couplers for excavators. The standard makes it easier for machine operators and contractors to choose quick couplers, tiltrotators and work tools from different manufacturers, and be confident that they function together.
Upgraded Front Pin Lock safety solution
Front Pin Lock from Steelwrist is a mechanical lock of the front shaft which significantly limits the risk of an unintended drop of work tools. With Steelwrist entrance into the demolition segment, the patented Front Pin Lock technology has been upgraded to a second generation in order to support the heavy demolition work tools.
Hydraulic couplings with Qplus technology
All SQ couplers come with QPlus technology which enables higher hydraulic flows with fewer pressure drops than many other systems on the market.
