Dig Smart. Dig Safe.

Switch tasks quickly and safely

engcon offers the market's safest quick coupler system for connecting tools, hydraulics and the central lubrication system automatically without your having to leave the cab.

Q-Safe™ quick coupler

The market's safest hydraulic quick coupler incorporating multiple safety functions. Available as machine couplers for all excavators between 6-40 metric tons and as quick couplers beneath engcon's EC209 tiltrotator and higher models.

With each order of a Q-Safe quick coupler/machine coupler and a tiltrotator with the DC2 control system, we include EC-OIL automatic oil connectors free of charge in the machine coupler and on the upper section of the tiltrotator.

If you order a hydraulic tool together with the above combination, we also include EC-Oil as standard equipment free of charge for the tiltrotator's quick coupler.

EC-Oil is ALWAYS included as standard equipment free of charge on all engcon hydraulic tools (with QS45-QS80). Feel free to contact us at Engcon for further information.

Q-Safe™ Benefits

  1. Automatic quick coupler system connects the tiltrotator and hydraulic tools without the operator having to leave the cab
  2. Hydraulic locking with multiple safety functions:
    1. Electronic sensors detect when both axles are in contact
    2. A check valve prevents the hydraulic cylinder from opening in the event of a hose rupture or pressure-drop
    3. Powerful exterior springs keep the coupler locked even if the electronics and hydraulics fail.
    4. The unique design of the lock bolt provides additional safety in that the bucket axle bottoms against the coupler's side plates, preventing it from dropping out of position even if all three of the preceding steps should fail.
  3. The tool can only be removed when it is resting on the ground at a given pressure (with QSC). This eliminates the risk of dropped buckets.
  4. Front and rear locks eliminate the risk of accidents caused by dangling tools
  5. Q-Safe is supplied as standard with external audible and visible warning signals to alert the surrounding area
  6. Play-free design with double contact surfaces compared to many other coupler systems
  7. Long "shark jaws" for easier, safer tool pick-up
  8. Made from high-strength steel
  9. Compatible with all excavators in the stated weight class regardless of control system
  10. The hook is safety-rated in compliance with: EN ISO 12100-1/A1:2009 and EN ISO 12100-2/A1:2009
  11. Q-Safe also comes as standard beneath engcon's tiltrotators from the EC209 and higher models.

QSC – Quick Coupler Standard Control

Nobody would ever think of switching the gas and brake pedals around in a car, as this would likely have deadly consequences. Today, quick coupler controls on the world's excavators can vary significantly, depending on excavator make, model and market. With QSC – Quick Hitch Standard Control, engcon sets a new standard. QSC brings together the excavator and tiltrotator quick coupler controls on a single panel that is always installed in the same place in the cab – off to the right in front of the operator – regardless of excavator make or model. This consistency minimizes the risk of pressing the wrong button or function to release the bucket or tiltrotator.

QSC – standardized safety

  1. Controls both the machine and tiltrotator quick couplers with a single control panel.
  2. Standardizes all lock functions.
  3. Compatible with all excavators, regardless of make or model.
  4. Also compatible with quick couplers of other makes
  5. Optimized for Q-Safe quick couplers, bringing additional safety functions:

    + Slew and/or lift restrictions, as well as audible and visible warning signals in case of improperly connected bucket.

    + Ground pressure function, i.e. the bucket or other tool must be in contact with the ground to allow detachment from the quick coupler. Other types of quick couplers only come with the ground pressure function

The safest control system and joysticks on the market

The DC2 control system and MIG2 joysticks control engcon's tiltrotators with the highest precision and comply with the ISO-13849-1 safety standard. This standard places high demands on all control system components such as hydraulics, electronics and software. In addition to tiltrotator control, the DC2 offers the options of track, wheel and boom slew control. Also, remote support is available via a smartphone app. No matter how far away you are, your service technician can link to your tiltrotator via the cell phone network for troubleshooting and making necessary adjustments.

engcon DC2

  • The engcon DC2 control system meets all current and known future safety requirements.

MIG2

  • MIG2 joysticks provide soft, infinitely variable tiltrotator control. This means maximum precision, which makes work as safe as possible.
  • Hand rest comes as standard to provide a safe grip on the joystick.

Tiltrotator – for maximum safety

Since their introduction in the beginning of the 1990s, engcon's tiltrotators have revolutionized excavator capabilities and have provided increased flexibility and better economy. It is equally important for the tiltrotator to make the workplace safer. Thanks to fewer machine moves and a broad range of tools, tiltrotators enhance safety by reducing the need for manual labor. Engcon's tiltrotators can be adapted to fit most of the excavators and backhoe loaders on the market with machine weights ranging between 1.5 and 33 metric tons.

  1. Load-holding valves in the tilt cylinders to keep the load secure in the event of our hose rupture are included as standard on ALL engcon tiltrotators.
  2. All tiltrotators are fitted with sealed hose protection to prevent oil from spraying out, e.g. in the event of a hose rupture.
  3. All tiltrotators from the EC209 are supplied with Q-Safe™ quick hitch as standard equipment
  4. Comes ready for the QSC locking system to prevent incorrectly connected or dropped buckets
  5. Engineered for high breakout torque
  6. High quality steel enhances safety.

Get a safe grip on the situation

Sometimes you need a helping hand at work, and engcon's integrated grab accessory or grab cassettes manufactured with high-strength steel are the perfect aid for lifting heavy objects like posts, manhole covers and curbstones. Load-holding valves in each grab cylinder enhance safety.

Integrated grabs and detachable grab cassettes

  • Designed to keep a good, safe grip on the load.
  • Compliance with the relevant safety standards.
  • High quality steel enhances safety.
  • All tiltrotators with the SS9 control system (4-hose) that have an integrated grab have a dump valve to prevent possible pressure surges when changing direction, thereby avoiding the risk of unwanted grab opening.
  • Load-holding valves are fitted as standard equipment on our integrated grab's and detachable grab cassettes.
