CONNECT system from MecalacPublished 29/3, 2016 at 16:05
The French manufacturer of compact excavators and loaders, Mecalac introduced its M- CONNECT quick coupling system at last year’s Intermat show. Recognized with a Silver Award, the system was first tested on the Mecalac 10t 12MTX wheeled excavator.
To follow up on the success of M-CONNECT, Mecalac is now introducing a fully automatic system CONNECT that can be operated from the cab. Mecalac’s buckets and attachments are fitted with hook elements to enable connection by two pins located at the end of the boom. The hooks are shaped to prevent disengagement of the pins when the work tool is in operation. A hydraulic cylinder connecting the two pins performs the engagement or release. A detection system enables the operator to check the tool connection without having to leave the cab. The Connect is easy to use and maintenance-free.
