QuickConnect – the innovative coupling system from LEMKEN
Comfort and safety
QuickConnect, the automatic top link coupling system from LEMKEN, combines two important benefits, which have been mutually exclusive with all tractor coupling systems in the past. Firstly, QuickConnect provides enough space between tractor and machine for the easy and safe connection of services such as PTO shaft, pipes, cables and top links. Secondly, the innovative coupling system moves the machine closer to the tractor, than has been possible before, allowing larger machines to be lifted by lighter tractors, without loss of stability.
Simple, fast and safely connected
- With QuickConnect, the tractor is first reversed to the machine leaving enough space for the driver to dismount and connect hoses, cables and PTO shaft. Other connection procedures are then completed from the safety of the tractor seat. As the tractor is reversed fully toward the machine, the intelligent coupling system automatically locks the top link into place, leaving the driver to focus on attaching the lower lift hooks.
- The equipment is disconnected from the tractor just as easily by following the above steps in reverse order. The driver unlocks the top and bottom link from his seat and then drives the tractor forward to allow enough space to disconnect all connecting elements quickly and easily from the ground.
Shorter connection and disconnection times
- Thanks to the QuickConnect system, the operator no longer has to lift heavy parts such as A-frames onto the tractor’s three-point linkage system. Furthermore, the driver does not have to leave the cabin after connecting the equipment, for example to raise the attachment for transport, resulting in reduced connection and disconnection times.
- LEMKEN’s innovative top link coupling system is particularly useful for field sprayers, which require a close connection due to their high weight. The result is a more stable tractor even with reduced front ballast.
