ENGCON INTRODUCES NEW CABLE BUCKET FOR LARGER EXCAVATORS

Increasing customers’ profitability – again

Engcon - the world’s leading manufacturer of tiltrotators has introduced a new series of Cable buckets.

When equipped with an Engcon tiltrotator, it is becoming increasingly common for 30-ton excavators to perform work previously accomplished by smaller excavators or, as the industry calls them, service machines. The enhanced reach and capacity of the larger machines, when coupled with the additional flexibility and dexterity that comes from a tiltrotator is increasing the demand for the larger machines. But making larger equipment do the work of smaller machines creates a need for suitably sized special purpose attachments. To meet these demands, Engcon has introduced the CB29 Cable Bucket, designed for excavators in the 27-31 tonne range.

The launch of Engcon's new CB29 cable bucket will bring many benefits to both customers and contractors. "We know that customers do not always want to pay the shipping and hours required to rent multiple machines. Perhaps they primarily need a bigger machine for a larger construction project or roadwork. But they may have a brief need for smaller equipment. If our customer can get more hours out of one machine, it's win-win, "says John Lundqvist, Product Developer at Engcon.

“A 30-tonne excavator begins a construction or road project, but then often sits idle waiting for material delivery. With the new bucket attachment, it can be used for other purposes such as grading, cable excavation and more”. Lundqvist argues

And with little or no standby time, it can still be less expensive to use the 30-tonner than to ship a second machine to the job site. “

Engcon – always keeping an eye on the profitability and efficiency of its customers.

"We do not think this concept will replace the 15-20 metric tonne class service machines, which are often wheeled excavators, since they are so flexible. But our customers see CB29 as a good complement to use when an opportunity arises,” says Lundqvist.

Engcon’s CB29 cable head is heavily built and reinforced with high-strength wear and cutting steel in quality up to 500 Brinell. The CB29 can be fitted with a top bracket to fit any hitch system but it comes with S70, S80 and S2 brackets as standard.
