Fusion Quick Coupler

Improved Machine Performance

Fusion™ is the patented wheel loader coupler system from Caterpillar. The Fusion Coupler System provides performance virtually identical to pin on – with all the exibility of a quick coupler system. The Fusion Coupler sits back, close-in to the loader arms – minimizing offset and increasing the machine’s performance.

No Loss of Performance

Imagine lifting a hundred pound box with your arms fully extended. Now imagine lifting that same load close to your body. That’s the genius of Fusion: designed to integrate the work tool and the machine by pulling the coupler and tool closer in to the loader. As a result, the center of gravity is moved inward, towards the machine. This translates to increased lifting ability when compared to machines equipped with other coupler systems.

Unsurpassed Durability

An advanced wedging mechanism creates a tight, rattle-free t. This patented lock up system eliminates play and wear – resulting in a long service life. Wedges pull the attachment tight to the machine in two directions – in and down. Constant hydraulic pressure on the coupler wedges compensate for wear, assuring a tight t through the life of the coupler. Tight t gives better tool control and increased productivity. Coupler durability is substantially increased over traditional couplers.

Enhanced Visibility

An open coupler frame design clears sight lines from the operator’s seat, making it easier than ever before to engage and disengage attachments with certainty. Offset tines and other design changes to Fusion Pallet Forks, working in conjunction with the Fusion Coupler, enhance visibility substantially at ground level and truck bed height when compared to traditional coupler and fork combinations.

Common Interface Compatibility

The Fusion Coupler System gives Caterpillar customers one common interface – eliminating the need for many different couplers across the range of small and medium wheel loaders. This expanded machine compatibility not only allows one machine to use a range of work tools, but also allows one work tool to be picked up by machines of many different sizes. The Fusion coupler interface is designed to work on 924 through 972 machines. Each machine will have its own optimal bucket and fork recommendations. However, cross-machine compatibility gives you additional exibility and eet options not found with any other wheel loader coupler.

Fusion™ eliminates coupler offset...

...with substantial improvements in center of gravity.
