A common problem when connecting any quick-connect hydraulic coupler is that line pressure can build up, making connecting the couplers nearly impossible. The XBoom Coupler® QC-Mate(TM) quickly and safely solves that problem.
The QC Mate uses special shaped clamp jaws (13-ga steel tubing with large structural side gussets) that mount to a ratcheting hand clamp, providing powerful 600 lb clamping force. The Clamp Jaws accommodate both 3/8" and 1/2" and a second set accommodates 1/2" and 3/4" hydraulic quick couplers. It's compatible with all standard Flat-Face Hydraulic Couplers and Ag Style Hydraulic Couplers within those sizes.
This tool is compatible with ALL standard 3/8, 1/2, 3/4 NPT nipples and fittings that attach to the back-side of Flat-Face and Ag Style Hydraulic Couplers. However, the Clamp Jaws need to engage the back-side of each coupler. Therefore, this device may not be compatible with some “Hydraulic Blocks” where access to both sides of the circuit are not accessible (this is the case with many CAT and Kubota skid steers and CTLs). Also, pre-measure your longest connection point distance (the spread) and make sure it is less than 12" (Contact us if you need a wider clamp, 18" option may be available for request). For the jaws to engage, you have to have access to the flat surfaces on the back of the couplers and a “shared center-line” for the clamp to align correctly and create an in-line clamping force.

This is what we are seeing all across the industry; day after day new emails from vendor's telling us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason. The cost of steel materials has been steadily increasing throughout 2020, and it unfortunately has not slowed into 2021. The reduced capacities of companies in this industry due to Covid-19 health and safety regulations continues to have an impact. As a result, we are forced to increase our list pricing for 2021 and add a steel surcharge to off-set the rising costs that is projected to continue this year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have on our close and prospective customers. We we will do what we can to keep our prices low when the opportunities are found, but right now we are left with little options.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
