Kramer goes fully hydraulic with Smart Attach quick hitch system

By Steve Ducker12 August 2021

German manufacturer Kramer-Werke has unveiled a fully hydraulic quick hitch system so that spontaneous interruptions when changing attachments will no longer affect the scheduled work process.

An enhancement of its well-known quick change plate, the Smart Attach system will, according to Kramer, ensure greater productivity, efficiency and safety. The company - which sells compact wheeled loaders into the construction industry and includes recycling companies among its clients - added that customer requirements have been a key focus, and the dimensions of both quick hitch systems are identical, so existing attachments can continue to be used.

Kramer Smart Attach The Smart Attach system is aimed at providing versatility in line with customer requirements

Hydraulically driven attachments can be coupled with the new system without getting in and out of the vehicle, as connection with the hydraulic circuit is automatic.

The attachment is locked and hydraulically coupled, with automatic pressure release, by a simple touch of a button with a secure two-hand operation. With the coupling unit’s integrated locking display (green), the operator can always see that the attachment is attached to the machine successfully and securely.

Versatility is a key part of Smart Attach for Kramer. Attachments without the hydraulic function and attachments with the conventional hydraulic coupling system can still be used, while customers also have the option of retrofitting older attachments or using new attachments that are customised ex-works to the Smart Attach system.

Kramer said it also provides the EC declaration of conformity for the entire system, for both machines and attachments. Initially, the system will be offered as an option in the large 5-series as well as for some machines in Kramer’s premium 8-series range.
