Truckline launches new Macnaught EZ™ Easy Release Grease Coupler
Truckline has announced it will stock Macnaught’s new EZ™ Easy Release Grease Coupler from April 2017. The latest innovation from Macnaught is designed to reduce the effort involved in greasing, even under high pressures, bringing greater efficiencies and reduced fatigue to the workplace.
The EZ is the only major coupler on the Australian market featuring metal seals making them maintenance-free and highly reliable. Similar to the KY, the EZ features the Supergrip™ 3-jaw design providing stronger grip and support for those higher pressure applications.
“We took on board feedback from our customers who have expressed a preference for simple, trigger- operated couplers,” said Jenia Mehdizadeh, Macnaught marketing manager.
“We tested a wide range of trigger-operated grease couplers already available on the Australian and international markets. Our test also included customer trials.”
“We found that while most of the trigger-operated couplers on the market worked well in normal conditions, under pressure, for example where a grease nipple is blocked, many were very difficult to remove.”
In response, Macnaught has developed the EZ grease coupler featuring superior design and high quality components. Utsav Patel, Fluid Handling Product Manager at Macnaught, said the EZ Coupler has been designed to be as easy as child’s play.
“Our testing on all similar products in the market reveals that the ergonomic trigger design of the EZ makes light work of releasing the coupler even under pressure,” he said.
“The EZ is therefore the easiest grease coupler on the market making the greasing process more efficient and causing less fatigue. This is also good news from an occupational health and safety point of view.”.
Truckline national manager Mick Henderson said the launch of the EZ within Truckline fully illustrated the commitment to providing customers with advanced high quality products.
“This is one of our main focuses at Truckline – always providing the best possible solutions to keep our customer’s truck on the road, not in the workshop,” he said.
