Engcon launches a new tiltrotator for excavators up to 33 tonnes

World leading tiltrotator manufacturer Engcon continues to push the boundaries with its ongoing investment in R&D. The latest development is the EC233, a completely new tiltrotator for excavators up to 33 tonnes.

The EC233 is an Engcon Generation 2 tiltrotator, built using the very latest technology.

The EC233 includes a central lubrication system for easy maintenance, a 45-degree tilt angle for best access and flexibility, a robust design with a cast body and heavy-duty shaft journals for extended service life.

“The EC233 comes ready for ePS – engcon Positioning System – which means it will be able to sync with various excavator guidance systems for maximum efficiency. Standard equipment includes tilt cylinders fitted with load-holding valves and a Q-Safe quick hitch for maximum safety,” says Head of R&D at Engcon, Fredrik Jonsson.

β€œIn short, this is Engcon’s most powerful tiltrotator yet. It uses the latest technology and we have great confidence in the model as it was tested to the limit on big machines during the Swedish winter of 2016/2017,”

The EC233 will debut at Plantworx in Leicestershire between 6-8 June 2017. The first of the pilot models will begin deliveries during the autumn with series roll out anticipated for New Year, 2018.
