Do you have the hydraulic quick coupler option on your TL230?
The amount of energy necessary to refute bullsh*t is an order of magnitude bigger than to produce it

Yes, standard on CAB units. Its heavy duty as you would expect with a simple rocker switch to operate-no holding down once its unlatched. However, they have a simple contact reed switch on one of the hose connections. You cannot open the latches unless you remove the hoses first.

Simple fail safe that will ultimately aggravate you or fail. However, will keep newbs from ripping the hoses around.

Looks good Jeff. The thumb on your Komatsu is what I think a regular thumb looks like.
Do or do not. There is no try. yoda
