A new generation of tiltrotators from engcon

engcon, the world-leader in tiltrotators for excavators between 1.5 – 32 tons, has developed an entirely new range of tiltrotators. First to be released is the EC226, adapted for excavators between 18–26 tons and built to cope with the new generations of even more powerful excavators.

The new generation is based on an entirely new principle and above all, the opportunity to integrate modern communication technology, ease of service, tilt angle and durability have been prioritised in the development work that's been ongoing for around a year. "Generation 2 is based on the customer's points of view and desires for the current generation," says Johan Johansson, Design Manager at engcon Holding.

Johan Johansson mentions the fact that generation 2 is prepared for sensors that are part of today's modern machine control technology, and that the tiltrotators have moulded lubrication channels and lubrication points to one centre, which means that fitting the central lubrication is both simple and quick to do. "The design of the 2 series enables tilt angles up to 45 degrees and we have considerably increased the bushing dimensions for a longer lifespan, as well as moving the hydraulic motor to the left hand side for a better forwards view," Johan continues.

Several models in the 2 series are also adapted for engcon's new high flow swivel, which provides a flow of at least 150 l/min from the auxiliary outlet. Laboratory tests have shown values of up to 180 l/min. In addition, an entirely new and more easily-operated tye of valve has been produced, giving smoother movements and which also saves fuel.

engcon now say they are supplying the first pre-series of EC226 and in summer they will start start mass production to begin phasing out the faithful old EC20.
