John Deere's new Worksite Pro Hydraulic Quick Coupler is designed to allow customers to quickly pick up and switch between backhoe loader attachments so they can get the job done faster than ever before.

On a busy jobsite, one key to backhoe loader productivity is faster loader attachment changes. That's where John Deere's new Worksite Pro Hydraulic Quick Coupler comes in. It's designed to allow customers to quickly pick up and switch between backhoe loader attachments so they can get the job done faster than ever before.

This solid, robust coupler is designed for John Deere's 310G, 310SG, 410G and 710G backhoe loaders. It features a unique single floating hydraulic cylinder that engages attachments with ease.

The new quick coupler for the 310G, 310SG and 410G allows the machine operator to pick up Deere and JRB backhoe loader attachments, as well as Caterpillar backhoe loader and four-wheel-drive loader attachments. The coupler designed for the 710G can pick up Deere and JRB backhoe and four-wheel-drive loader attachments. Lift capacities and breakout forces are comparable to the previous coupler design. The control switch is center mounted on the front console, and there's no need to hold a function-over relief and a switch at the same time, as was necessary with the previous design. The hook-on pins are made of high strength steel, enhancing the coupler's durability. Visibility to the fork tips at truck loading height is best-in-class, with excellent visibility to the attachment at ground height for coupling/decoupling.

A new line of attachments has been designed to work with the coupler that includes pallet forks, heavy duty buckets and multipurpose buckets. The pallet forks feature a fork leveling guide that's mounted to the frame for a quick, highly visible leveling reference, as well as fork tines that extend downward for enhanced visibility. Both the heavy duty and multipurpose buckets have bolt-on cutting edges, and the heavy-duty buckets provide a top edge that gives operators visual reference for bucket level.
