Using excavators effectively means using the right tool for the job. The CW-45 quick coupler makes it possible to simply release one work tool and pick up the next. The CW-45 coupler is available for Cat excavators or non-Cat carriers between 25 and 40 ton.
The quick coupling of work tools is an integral part of the philosophy: Increase the utilization of your excavator through work tools. Your machine becomes an all-purpose tool carrier. The CW- coupler has become an industry standard with over 50.000 units sold in the last 40 years. It's interchangeable with different machine classes and has been designed for use with more than 700 different machines, both Cat and non-Cat.
The CW quick coupler complies with all applicable global safety standards.
The CW quick coupler design is very robust and the low construction height maintains an optimal break out force. A wedge-style locking system fits the coupler tight to the tool hinges without any play during the entire life. This makes the coupler very suitable in applications such as rip & load, demolition and in quarries.
Adapter hook sets and mounting brackets are available to adapt nearly any brand and type of work tool to work with the Cat CW quick coupler. This includes hooks/brackets for buckets, hammers, grapples and other attachments.
Cat CW quick couplers are sold through the same Caterpillar dealers as Cat machines. That gives you access to an integrated service and support network - a single organisation for machine and work tool parts and service. No other manufacturer can offer you the same.
