Default Flat face coupling connector

Saw this today on another forum and thought it looked good. I have a Holp quick on, but looking for another one.
I'm sure someone skilled at metal work could make the brackets easy enough.

Hmm ...... never had a lot of confidence in plastic clamps ... 600lbs!!

If it does what it says it will .... we could be making a few jaws for a suitable clamp

I priced a Holp set last July with Kramp .. "QO021011 £168.32 + VAT"
plus the inevitable shipping which they omitted to quote for

Spare jaws were " 02120053 £16.57 + VAT

Very interesting post Gra

I have a four way one on my mini loader. Great bit of kit. If the problem were on my machines I would set it up this way.
My use is on hire machines where I donít have control. Menziís are very efficient at dumping the pressure both sides.

been looking for a particular website, I found some time ago, with them Ollie ... priced, for a change and they were eye wateringly 'spensive ... had been considering their use on the 'Drema / VA-r ..... 'til I clocked the prices

Farmer Giles has no alternative but to shell out, if they'm fitted ..... or buy singles and a mixed bag of coloured cable ties

Should be okay as you use your own flat faced couplers in the mechanism.
