Optional extra

EC-Oil is the key to our system. It means you can quickly switch hydraulic tools from the cab or decouple the tiltrotator when you need more breakout force. The EC-Oil automatic hydraulic connector now comes as standard equipment at no extra cost*. In some jobs, this can save an hour or more every day compared to manual connection – and time is money…

Because Engcon manufacture and assemble our own systems, we are able to provide total solutions – from control systems, hitches and attachments to the means to connect them all.
Use EC-Oil for instant tool changes directly from the cab. By using EC-Oil on the excavator hitch, on the top of the tiltrotator, below the tiltrotator and on the tool itself; it is possible to switch from tiltrotatormounted hydraulic attachments such as sorting grabs, compactors or tree shears to directly-mounted tools such as a hammer within seconds, at full machine pressure, without having to leave the cab.
This allows your excavator to be used to its maximum efficiency, all of the time. It saves weight, resulting in fuel savings and a better total economy. You can use the correct tool for the job, when you want to use it, rather than have to think about grouping tasks together or losing up to 15 minutes every time you need to change a hydraulic attachment. You will be safer, more efficient and more profitable.

When you order an engcon machine hitch and tiltrotator with DC2 control system, EC-Oil blocks are supplied as standard between the machine hitch and the tiltrotator. If you order an engcon hydraulic tool at the same time as the combination above, EC-Oil is fitted as standard in the tiltrotator’s quick hitch (Starting with QS60, other sizes will be introduced shortly) All of engcon’s hydraulic tools with QS45-QS80 ALWAYS include EC-Oil as a standard at no extra cots. Please contact Engcon for more information.


System engcon

What is most important for you?

  • Profitability

    System engcon, centred around the tiltrotator, saves both time and fuel.

  • Safety

    Fewer machine transits and less need for manual work increases safety at the workplace.

  • Flexibility

    The tiltrotator's ability to tilt and rotate makes the machine a good all-rounder that carries out most tasks with greater precision.

  • Efficiency

    Fewer machine movements and faster jobs mean less wear on the machine.

What should I consider when deciding my excavator specification?

Despite the increasing popularity of tiltrotators, many excavator manufacturers do not yet sell 'tiltrotator-ready' machines on certain markets. There are two main considerations when buying a new excavator for use with a tiltrotator - dipper length and hydraulics. Ideally, a shorter dipper should be chosen to take into account the build height of the tiltrotator. For example, if the standard dipper length is 2500mm, choose one 2000mm long so that the extra reach resulting from the addition of the tiltrotator still falls within the manufacturer's safe working range and that there is no chance of the bucket or other attachment hitting the cab when fully crowded.

The standard machine hydraulics can often be used for tiltrotator operation, but the machine controls may not be sufficiently sophisticated to fully exploit the capabilities of the attachment. Tiltrotators are usually supplied with so-called fully proportional control systems. These allow the hydraulic power to be gradually increased according to the needs of the attachment and the task to be completed, for example when pouring type 1 or concrete into a narrow area or using grabs or pallet forks. Non-proportional, or on/off systems which are generally button-operated do not allow the delicacy of control necessary for many tiltrotator operations.

If the excavator has two dual-acting proportionally controlled hydraulic circuits, then basic tiltrotator operation should be possible using the excavator's controls. A third, non-proportional circuit will be required for the tiltrotator hitch. Where a single, dual acting circuit is fitted, it is often more cost-effective to use engcon's DC2 control system which manages the hydraulic switching and flow proportionally within the tiltrotator, rather than have additional circuits fitted.

Can I use my existing buckets?

The pin geometry on your existing buckets is unlikely to be compatible with the S-type coupler fitted to standard tiltrotators. Choosing a Unisafe/PUP coupler to allow you to use your existing buckets is likely to be a false economy for the simple reason that tiltrotator (s-type) buckets are designed for tiltrotator digging. Not only is the angle of the bucket optimised for tiltrotator use, but the bucket geometry (shape, size, etc.) is specific for rotational and angled digging and grading. The saving you make by choosing the S-type coupler can be re-invested in top bracket adapters to convert your existing buckets and other attachments.

If you are running hydraulic tools, you can also purchase adapter brackets EC-Oil ready, or pre-fitted with EC-Oil and thus convert your current hydraulic tools with ease for the S-type coupler.
