The Lowdown

JB Attachments has harnessed leading edge technology and feedback from our clients to develop the new generation JBA Multi-Coupler, a standout product in today’s market.

JB Attachments has moved with the industry to improve performance, ensure safety and increase breakout power, thus conserving fuel consumption.

JB Attachments' revolutionary multi-coupler with its unique low profile, lightweight design provides greater production efficiency due to improved breakout force with the added benefit of more economical fuel consumption.

Lighter, faster and better breakout power, the new JBA Multi-Coupler ensures that you move your dirt more efficiently. 

The JBA Multi-Coupler has a unique patented positive mechanical locking system that removes the need for a driver to leave the cab to insert a manual pin – meaning less costly downtime and elimination of human error.   This world-first safety feature meets the new Australian Safety Standard: CL 2.1.4 / Draft Standard DR 06580.

The Coupler’s multi-pin centre-operating jaw gives it the capability to pick up all attachments from all other makes and models in the same weight range.

The Coupler is designed, manufactured and tested to withstand loads in excess of twice the specified capacity.  For example:
 12-14 tonne coupler front jaw has a safe working load of 27 tonne and is tested to 54 tonne.

The JBA Multi-Coupler is designed to be used with heavy-duty attachments including rockbreakers and concrete pulverisers.
