Use Q-companion.


With our unique driver support system you will get full control of your daily business. The system consists of a load weighing function that weighs your load while lifting, a status monitor which gives you full control over your implement position and load, and maintenance reminders that will help you to take care of your loader to increase its service life span.

Load weighing

With help from Q-companion you will always load the right amount of material. The product has been developed and tested particularly for agricultural applications e.g. bucket work, bale/silage handling, pallet handling, big bag lifting etc.

The load is weighed during the lift cycle and you can chose to add the weights to the memory manually, or leave it in automatic mode.
It’s easy to use and features a guided set-up procedure and an intuitive user interface to help you achieve fantastic accuracy. Save valuable time by knowing your load the moment you grab it!

Q Series Q8M

Position monitor

You are in full control with the position monitor function. The gages will show a implement height and angle reference and there’s no need anymore to readjust the manual indicator rod when changing implements.

It’s particularly useful when working with bale spikes, pallet forks or other occasions when it’s difficult to see the implement angle from the cab.
It improves ergonomics and reduces your fatigue. The lift force gage will display the lift force usage, in % of max. lift capacity. It helps you to exercise caution when handling heavy loads. Here you can also operate your loader lights!

USB Memory

All your weighing is saved in the display memory. At your convenience you can choose to copy or transfer this to the included USB stick and bring it to your office.

The saved file is compatible with Excel, or Excel compatible programs. It includes date, time, name of the implement used and weight for each individual lifts (weighings) you’ve performed. This makes it easy to keep track of your work!

Implement selector

You can store up to 10 implements in the Q-companion display. We recommend that you also name them accordingly.
The implements can be calibrated for weighing or position monitoring or both – you decide!

Just remember to change implement in Q-companion when you change implement on the loader.

Maintenance reminder

The maintenance reminders in Q-companion will tell you when it’s time to grease the loader and torque-check all hardware. This will reduce down-time, reduce the risk of unnecessary repairs and eventually give you the best value from your machine investment.

There is no longer any need to relate to tractor hours for loader maintenance. The maintenance reminder will base the maintenance intervals on how much you operate the loader. The more you operate it – the more frequent you need to care for it.
