Genesis to Offer Steelwrist Hands-Free Quick Coupler on Demo Tools

Cooperation agreement with Steelwrist will supply Genesis with quick-attach couplers that allow changing demolition attachments without leaving the cab

Genesis Attachments, supplier of demolition work tools for excavators, signed an agreement with Steelwrist for supply of fully automatic attachment interfaces. Genesis Attachments will now offer demolition work tools with factory-supplied SQ-type adapter plates that allow for more efficient interface between work tools and adapter plates via optimized hose routings.

“The performance, quality and safety functions of the Steelwrist SQ product line fit perfectly in to our delivery program. We will now be able to supply our dealers and users with tailor-made, fully automatic solutions, and our dealers can focus on giving end customer even better field support instead of spending time in the workshop,” says Jeff Adams, vice president and managing director of Genesis Attachments.

“Steelwrist's target has always been to work close to original equipment manufacturers. With this agreement, we take another step in this direction and we feel there is a good fit with a great team and a high-quality brand such as Genesis. We have a tremendous interest for SQ-type couplers and adapters and we are now well positioned as the global standard is now booming”, says Stefan Stockhaus, CEO of Steelwrist.

The agreement includes the possibility for Genesis Attachments to globally offer its demolition tools with the Steelwrist SQ fully automatic interface. The SQ system follows the global S type industrial standard with the addition of fully automatic hydraulic couplers.

Steelwrist quick couplers are known for safety features such as Front Pin Lock, their robust steel-cast design and their ability to change hydraulic-powered work tools in seconds without leaving the cabin.

“Steelwrist SQ products in combination with Genesis demolition attachments create a perfect match. Our QPlus technology enables higher hydraulic flows with less pressure drops than other systems on the market,” says Toni Ylitalo, SQ product line responsible at Steelwrist. "Steelwrist and Genesis product benefits combined together will surely be recognized by our customers."
