The new Hitched & Locked (HAL) Pick-Up Hitch system, launched by Dromone earlier this year at LAMMA, is now available from Lynx Engineering. Designed for use with the Dromone hydraulic pick-up hitch, the new system uses smart technology to confirm to the operator that the attachment has been hitched safely and securely locked.
Using integrated sensors and controls, audio and visual signals are sent to the cab of the tractor. The combination of sensors provides assurance that locking is secure and safe in both vertical and horizontal positions.
The in-cab feedback protects against human error by helping to ensure the operator can’t drive away with an unlocked pick-up hitch. A push-button release mechanism, an optional replacement for the standard cable/lever pull arrangement, further improves ease of use and ergonomics in the cab.
Dromone’s HAL system is robust and reliable. The integrated design, featuring high quality IP69k sensors, meets and exceeds relevant standards and legislation including UN R147.
