Quicke releases Q-companion loader weighing scales
Quicke says its new Q-companion weighing scales will help accuracy and allow for easier, safer control of front loader operations.
With a digital screen, smart sensor technology and on-the-go efficiency, the Q-companion allows operators to weigh their load during a lift cycle. (See embedded video below)
It will also display current and remaining lifting capacity in the same view. Thanks to the Q-companion’s angle sensors, which sit on the top of the loader arm and the tool carrier end, the system is able to display the height and angle of the implement being used.
“Implements can be calibrated to level with ease,” Quicke says. “Calibration settings for up to 10 implements can be stored, making the next work session even more efficient.”
Quicke Australia’s Adam Durston says the company spent thousands of hours developing and extensively testing the Q-companion on agricultural applications such as bucket work, bale handling, and pallet and big bag lifting.
“It’s a unique system for easily weighing your load while lifting and monitoring the position of your implement and load,” he says. “You can set up maintenance reminders to help prolong the life of your loader and minimise downtime.”
The Q-companion can be fitted to new Q Series loaders.
