Caterpillar spent some time with Better Roads at World of Concrete 2014 talking about the company’s new hydraulic tilting coupler, which is set for release this summer, according to Greg Worley, market development engineer for Cat.

CAt prototype_IMG_0396A prototype of the still-unnamed coupler was on display.

The significant features of the new coupler are the following:

  • Hydraulic interface,

  • Versatile to any excavator or backhoe loader, and

  • Simplicity with coupling to a machine as a quick-attach coupler.

Helac’s tilting coupler is well known, but it does not have a hydraulic interface. By joining with Cat, a hydraulic tilting coupler will now be available.

To see the hydraulic coupler prototype on display, visit Caterpillar at booth C5661 at World of Concrete.
