With WorkCover NSW having announced that the sale and supply of semi-automatic quick hitches will be phased out in NSW within months, other states are likely to follow.
There are many types of quick hitches, including fully automatic versions that allow operators to change attachments from the cab.
JCB?s fully automatic quick hitches are standard on all of its new large excavators and optional on backhoe loaders.
JCB CEA can retrofit compliant automatic quick hitches.
The full details of the new rules can be found on the WorkCover NSW website.
