Mechanical Tilt Coupler

Mechanical Tilt Coupler

A tough and robust lower cost tilt coupler, requiring minimal installation and maintenance, and with 180 degrees of tilt in a compact body.

The Wedgelock Mechanical Coupler consists of a primary sliding wedge plate activated manually by a unique screw thread system.

You can still “reverse” the buckets and the wedge locking principle ensures the attachment stays tight minimizing the wear normally seen with manual couplers.

Simple, minimal moving parts, built to last, and with tilt capability to 180 degrees.

PowerClamp

The Wedgelock PowerClamp mounts and pivots on the main dipper pin and follows the arc (or radius) of the bucket.
