Quicke re­leases Q-com­pan­ion loader weigh­ing scales

Farms & Farm Machinery - - News -

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.
