Geith shows off its latest quick couplers
Geith couplers connect the world
Geith, an attachment manufacturer, is filling out its quick coupler range.
Geith specialises in hydraulic quick couplers from 1-85tonnes and excavator buckets ranging from 1-75tonnes.
The company’s quick coupler range now covers the 1-2tonnes size, 2-4 tonnes and 4-6 tonnes, says Jurgen Gremez, global sales and marketing manager.
The company, founded in 1959, has traditionally sold most of its products in France, the United Kingdom and North America, in both Canada and the United States. But it is making an export drive, focusing on Australia and Latin America, with new distribution centres to open soon.
Of interest is the combination of Geith Quick Couplers combined with a PowerTilt unit by Helac. Geith says the combination will easily tilt a bucket or any other attachment up to 180°C. It is available for excavators between 6 tonnes and 26 tonnes and can be operated totally from inside the cab.
Geith also manufactures compact tilt buckets for excavators ranging from 1.5-9tonnes. The single-cylinder buckets can be tilted 45° left and right to tackle any slope. There is also a range of dual cylinder tilting buckets for excavators from 2-29tonnes.
