Quick Coupling Systems


MARTIN Quick Coupling Systems – Quick and Simple Attachment Change

An innovative and highly rated development for all types of excavator. The quick coupling system from MARTIN offers exceptional safety, maximum comfort and an even faster change of attachment.

NEW from the MARTIN Quick Coupling System


On the Manual system (MM), the opening and closing direction has been brought in line with the hydraulic system. To release, the lever is now pressed downwards – a great ergonomic advantage. The lever movement has a precisely defined pivot point to ensure a uniform transfer of force.

All Quick Couplers, both hydraulic and manual, are now fitted with a visual lock control. From the cabin, the operator can therefore identify whether the locking hook is correctly positioned.


MARTIN Quick Couplers are now equipped with welded, high-quality lifting hooks designed for a higher loadbearing capacity and a longer service life.


MARTIN Quick Couplers are fitted with Gunnebo-Lifting Hooks.

To find the maxium loading capactiy for each coupler, please use the table provided. The given values are approximate and will vary according to the type of coupler. Actual values are provided on the MARTIN quick coupler ID plate.

Excavator Weight [t] Lifting Hook Max. Lifting Hook Load Capacity [kg]
< 3 UKN 1 1000
< 4 UKN 2 2000
< 6 UKN 3 3000
< 10 UKN 5 5000
< 18 UKN 8 8000
< 24 UKN 10 10000

Dedicated System


MARTIN excavator buckets and MARTIN Quick Couplers together form a perfectly matched system – the MARTIN DEDICATED SYSTEM.
High-grade materials, innovative design and meticulous production ensure top MARTIN quality. All buckets have a long service life and are designed for use in the harshest conditions.

The simple connection between quick coupler and attachment guarantees an optimal protection from wear. The welded materials guarantee a long life-expectancy.
The "Dedicated System" from Martin guarantees an optimal utilization of the excavator clearance (R).
The overall height has been reduced due to the optimised connection between bucket saddle and quick coupler. The quick coupler is integrated into the saddle of the bucket. The wear between bucket and coupler has also been minimised.
