The Geith tilting coupler is designed for use with excavators and backhoe loaders weighing between 6 and 26 tons. Operators can now more precisely position the bucket or attachment without having to reposition the machine, therefore increasing productivity and versatility. Depending on the model, it provides up to 180 degrees of side-to-side rotation.

The hydraulic quick coupler configuration meets current and proposed safety standards (ISO/DIS 13031), and features four independent locking components.

Safety features include a front lock that retains the attachment in the event of improper rear pin connection, while the rear lock and mechanical spring system retain the attachment in a working position should a loss of hydraulic power occur. Unlike gravity-type systems, the front and the rear spring-retained locks maintain high functionality in severe and dirty environments.

In addition to these features, the tilting coupler also features a curved engaging plate and a hydraulic cylinder check valve, as well as the “curl to release” control system that provides a safe process for attachment engagement and release.

The variable pin center design allows operators to pick up and change between a variety of OEM attachments from the comfort of their cabs. Operators also have the ability to reverse bucket orientation when working in confined spaces, such as along walls or under pipes.
