DEF in the DEF Tank, YES; DEF in the Diesel Tank, NO.

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is a vital component of a Select Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. It’s a clear solution made of Urea and water that’s colorless but has the smell of ammonia.

Dual locking means attachments remain securely engaged on both pins in the event of loss of engagement force. The two hoses, minimal moving parts, no greasing and no complicated operating sequence to follow are just some of the key features in the design. We’re showing model HD180-70 on a Hyundai HX160L excavator.

We rent and sell a wide range of attachments including this Werk-Brau coupler. Contact us if you’re interested or have questions. We’re here to help.
