Customer Question
Trying to find out...

Trying to find out how to remove rear bucket on a komatsu wbs-97s-5eo? Recently came in on hire with no user manual?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

WB97S-5EP0 F30003

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

It has a hydraulic lock mechanism on rear bucket-attatchmemt. No visible locking pin etc. Assuming its one of the dash buttons but haven't been able to determine what one and if any particular procedures need to be followed.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Only advise given was roll in bucket and press *some button and give it a jiggle to free from clasp.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Equipment Mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's sufficient at this stage.

These quick couplers are usually set up that you need to curl the bucket to the end of its stroke which will put it over relief pressure deadheading that function. When this deadheading happens and the coupler release switch is activated, it then diverts that pressure to the cylinder that unlocks your quick coupling. You can then I'm curl the bucket once the coupler releases your attachment or the locks. It is a pleasure to help anyway I can.
