On a wet, cold winter’s morning, who wouldn’t be happy to stay in the loader cab while automation connects an attachment? Farmer Thomas Mösl liked the idea so much that he came up with the Highspeed Oil Coupler, since refined over several seasons. We see how it works and outline how to fit one

Creature comfort aside, there’s time and irritation to be saved by automating attachment connection to a loader or materials handler. On top of that, you stay out of harm’s way. The Highspeed system plugs together up to four hydraulic connections – so two double-acting services – and up to seven electrical lines, simultaneously mechanically locking home an attachment. This happens without any manual depressurising, with no oil spill and faster than you just read this sentence.
