|Excavator Weight (t)||Pin Diameter (mm)||Coupler Model||Coupler Weight* kg (lbs)|
|1 – 2||25 / 30||QC25-30H||40 (18)|
|2 – 4||35 / 40||QC35-40H||77 (35)|
|4 – 8||45 / 50||QC45-50H||73 (161)|
|7 – 12||50 / 55 / 60||QC50-55-60H||92 (203)|

|16 – 25||70 / 80||QC70-80H||327 (721)|
Each coupler picks up a range of pin centers, while the top hitch assembly is built to suit your machine pin dimensions. This means you get a tight fit, with no slop, on the machine, while you also are able to pick up a large range of buckets.
Machine Requirements & Coupler Installation
Hydraulic Coupler Circuit
The coupler requires a hydraulic coupler circuit to open/close the coupler just like a standard hydraulic coupler.
If your machine doesn’t have an existing coupler circuit you will need the additional hydraulic install kit. This includes hydraulic lines, solenoid and control box for the cab to operate the coupler. For more information you can download the coupler operators and installation manual below.
The basic steps of the coupler install are as follows:
– Pin the coupler onto the machine.
– Run hoses from the coupler to the supplied control block that mounts onto the dipper/stick of the machine.
– Run hoses from the stick all the way back to the hydraulic pump housing compartment.
– Secure the hydraulic solenoid to a suitable location.
– Use T fittings to tap into the bucket cylinder circuit of the machine and connect hoses to the solenoid as instructed by the manual.
– Mount the control box in the cab and connect to the solenoid and power source.
The Attachment Company and Geith can assist with installation instructions remotely if needed.
Quick Coupler Features
Coupler Front & Rear Pin Lock
Hydraulic quick couplers from Geith feature front pin lock as well as the standard rear pin locking mechanism. Front pin locking ensures no dropping of the bucket when the rear lock isn’t properly engaged and is required to meet European safety standards.
The front pin is spring loaded in place incase the rear pin is not properly locked the bucket won’t drop from the coupler. The main coupler rear lock is operated by a hydraulic cylinder. Also held in by two heavy duty springs, incase of cylinder failure.
