Cast Multi Pick-Up Coupler for Wheel Loaders

Paladin Attachments
Dexter, Mich.

Paladin Attachments introduces the new JRB Nexus Cast Multi Pick-Up Coupler for wheel loaders. The company has created a product design engineered to increase productivity and visibility for wheel loaders using multiple attachments. While lighter than an equivalent fabricated coupler, the carbon steel casting design gives it 30 percent more strength and up to 11 percent more flex prior to yielding than a fabricated coupler. The coupler offset also has been reduced to provide up to a 26 percent improvement in breakout force impact.
