The new JRB PowerLatch was on display in Paladin Construction Group’s booth at the show. The unit features backup mechanical locks on both the front and rear attachment pins that are independent of the machine’s hydraulic locking and operating system. The ABS mechanical backup safety system automatically locks both pins so coupler engagement is maintained, even if a hydraulic failure occurs. Attachments can only be removed under operator control when they are in a safe, curled position.
