Do you offer assistance in selecting the best quick coupling material to withstand highly corrosive environments?

Stucchi excels in providing customer support which leads to improvements in performance and safety.  We offer a vast product line including couplers manufactured in different materials such as carbon steel, brass and stainless steel for different corrosive environments.  We also offer products with corrosive treatments such as QPQ plating, zinc …

I need a quick coupler to hold up to severe pressure impulses and hose rotation in heavy duty applications.

The VT Rot-lock is a top-of-the-line, screw-to-connect quick coupler series designed with axial bearings integrated in the male coupling.  This combined with the automatic locking sleeve makes the VT series the best solution in applications with vibration, hose rotation and severe pressure impulses.

Can I put multi-coupling plates on my excavator to quickly connect and disconnect multiple auxiliary hydraulic hoses for attachments?

Yes, our multi-coupling plates allow quick connect and disconnect of multiple auxiliary hydraulic lines with one movement. The DP and GR series are popular on excavators, drilling, mining, heavy construction equipment and any application which requires quick connect/release of multiple lines with or without residual pressure. Experience improved efficiency, safety …

I plan to use my tractor for heavy construction work, changing the standard flow to high flow. Do I need to upgrade my quick couplers too?

Yes! Beefing up the hydraulics increases stress on the circuit, requiring an evaluation of your quick connect/release couplers. The VP and VEP are designed to withstand this type of stress, contact us with any questions and for more information.

We are currently using poppet style couplers on our snow removal equipment and often experience water freezing in the couplers when left out all night and oil spillage on disconnection. Do you have a better option for a small fleet of plow trucks?

The poppet style was popular and in use for many snow removal applications, although better options now exist such as the APM series and flat face couplers. The APM is designed to relieve residual pressure within itself, providing a solution for connecting under pressure. The flat face valve design eliminates …

I need a durable quick coupler for a demolition job that has to endure days of heavy hammering without fail. Do you have a heavy duty coupler that I can rely on to last on heavy excavation work?

Our VEPHDL Series is a threaded, flat face coupler constructed of heavy duty material with a locking mechanism. The VEPHDL is proven to provide failsafe connections in the most demanding applications including demolition and mobile excavation when subjected to heavy hammering, vibrations and torsion. Just give us a call and …

I’m looking for a quick coupling that can safely be used with an operator close by – something that cannot be accidentally disconnected as that would be a safety concern for the operator.

Stucchi offers several different options that include a safety lock to prevent accidental disconnection, and even have some offerings that include a redundant safety lock to ensure full connection is made and maintained during operation.

We are currently using flat face couplings on a hydraulic breaker and after a short amount of time, the two halves become locked together and need to be replaced. Is there a different product better suited for our application?

Hydraulic Breaker circuits are a tough application for quick couplers, mainly due to the high impulse frequency and hydraulic force created by the tool. The flat face couplings are likely failing due to brinelling, which occurs where the male surfaces deform from the repeated loading and unloading of the locking …

Looking for a male/female set of flat faced stainless steel hydraulic couplings in 1” BSPT or NPT and 3/4” BSPT.

The Stucchi FL series is a flat face – fully 316 stainless steel coupling set that we offer in BSPP and NPT threads. Specifically, I would suggest reviewing the part numbers listed below: 802401110 – F. FL15 ¾” NPT 802401111 – M. FL15 ¾” NPT 802401112 – F. FL17 1″ …
