Rugged Skid Steer Hydraulic Couplers
Stucchi provides skid steer hydraulic couplers which are designed to keep rugged skid steer equipment such as Bobcat® and other utility vehicles in optimum operating condition. These small engine utility vehicles are designed with lift arms and attachments to aid in various types of construction, industrial and agricultural work processes. These utility vehicles and loaders require durable hydraulic quick couplers to withstand harsh elements such as extreme weather conditions and rugged terrain.
Bobcat and other utility vehicles are used for snow removal and endure freezing temperatures, deep snow, ice, freezing rain and salt. Skid steer equipment is also used in high heat and humidity environments for construction projects to maneuver across dirt hills and through trenches to move mountains of landfill, waste or construction equipment. Skid steer hydraulic quick couplers must stand up to these environments with leak free performance.
Proven Skid Steer Hydraulic Couplers
Stucchi offers a wide selection of skid steer hydraulic couplers which stand up to harsh environmental elements with reliable and durable quick connect couplers. We provide the quick connect solutions that keep your equipment on the road with leak free performance to meet productivity and safety goals. Our skid steer hydraulic couplers protect workers and the environment and include the following:
Saturn Block – provides simple connection and disconnection with a user friendly relief system which drains residual pressure prior to quick connect or disconnect processes. The Saturn Block is a direct field replacement for various pressurized connection systems. Sizes range from ½” to ¾” and is interchangeable with ISO 16028 products.
A Premier Series – this flat face ISO 16028 interchangeable coupling provides superior flow characteristics with lower pressure drop and higher pressure ratings over comparable couplers. The A Premier Series is specifically designed for applications which require leak free performance to avoid fluid loss and spills during quick connect and disconnect processes. The A Premier series is available in sizes ranging from 1/8” to 1 1/2” and is ISO 16028 interchangeable.
A-HD – this flat face coupling series addresses residual pressure in a circuit where pressure develops from thermal expansion of trapped fluid. Easily quick connect by hand under residual pressure with an internal valving system preventing any fluid release.
APM Series – designed to relieve pressure only within itself, the APM Series is a quick connect solution where trapped fluid or thermal expansion cause pressure to develop. The APM connects by hand without leaking any fluid into the environment. Sizes are available in 3/8” through 1 ½” with ISO 16028 interchangeability.
VEP Series – this is a popular threaded flat face coupler ideal in applications subjected to high pressure impulses or where residual pressure exists or is trapped in a line. Sizes range from ¼” to 2” and is available in a heavy duty and locking version.
VEPHD – the heavy duty version of the VEP Series provides added durability with a higher grade of steel and QPQ plating. Available in ¾” to 1 ½”, the VEPHD is interchangeable with the VEP and VEPHDL.
VEPHDL – provides failsafe connections with a locking version of the VEPHD and is interchangeable with the VEP and VEPHD. Available in sizes ranging from 1” to 1 ½”, the VEPHDL provides leak free connections to applications with high pressure, pressurized impulses and demanding processes where torsion and vibrations are present. The VEPHDL is ideal in mobile construction, giving skid steer equipment the quick connect solution required in excavators, loaders, backhoes and other mobile equipment.
This is a short list of some of the hydraulic quick couplers ideal in skid steer equipment to maintain productivity and safety with leak free connections. Keep your equipment on the road and eliminate unplanned equipment downtime with the reliable and durable skid steer hydraulic coupler solutions from Stucchi.
The A Premier Series Flat Face ISO 16028 Interchange Couplings offer higher pressure ratings, superior flow characteristics, and lower pressure drops compared to FIRG Series or competitors’ products. Specifically designed for applications needing no-leak performance and the ideal solution for limiting contamination in hydraulic circuits, the non-spill design avoids fluid loss during connection and disconnection. The A Premier is also available in an international version, with British BSP or German DIN port options.Read more
The APM Series Flat Face Couplings are state-of-the-art solutions for high residual pressure. They address residual pressure in a circuit anywhere thermal expansion of trapped fluid causes pressure to develop, and connect by hand with residual pressure, without releasing any fluid into the environment. The APM is intended to relieve pressure within itself only.Read more
The A-HD Series Flat Face Couplings address residual pressure in a circuit, anywhere thermal expansion of trapped fluid causes pressure to develop. They connect by hand with residual pressure, without releasing any fluid into the environment, due to an internal valving system.Read more
The VEP Series is a popular solution for hydraulic circuit applications subject to high pressure impulses and circuits which experience high residual or trapped pressure in a line. Thread-to-connect design eliminates premature wear or brinelling, a patented internal valve allows connection/disconnection with high residual pressures, and the flat face design avoids loss of hydraulic fluid and contamination into the circuit. A yellow o-ring indicator makes the VEP series even easier to work with.Read more
The VEPHD (Heavy Duty) Series offers the same features of the VEP series, with upgraded material, a yellow o-ring visual ID, and larger mating areas. Like the VEP, the VEPHD is a popular solution for hydraulic circuit applications subject to high pressure impulses and circuits which experience high residual or trapped pressure in a line, offered in a more durable, higher grade of steel and all QPQ plating for increased longevity.Read more
The VEPHDL Series Heavy-Duty Locking Flat Face Coupler is the ultimate failsafe solution for the most demanding hydraulic applications. This locking female version is interchangeable with standard VEPHD series flat face thread-to-connect heavy duty couplers and features a visual connection indicator for foolproof connection, every time.Read more
SATURN BLOCK SERIES
The Saturn Block allows for easy connection/disconnection with residual pressure, with a user-friendly relief system that drains the residual pressure before connection and disconnection, for connection without pressure or effort to reduce injury risk. The Saturn Block is a direct field replacement for other connect under pressure systems.Read more
A-PREMIER INTERNATIONAL SERIES
The A Premier International Series offers the same higher pressure ratings, superior flow characteristics, and lower pressure drop features and benefits as the A Premier series, with convenient international BSP British or German DIN port configurations. Specifically designed for applications needing no-leak performance and the ideal solution for limiting contamination in hydraulic circuits,the non-spill design avoids fluid loss during connection and disconnection. We also have our standard A-Premier series with NPT, SAE, JIC, and ORFS port connections.Read more
