EC233 takes first tests in its stride

Thousands of miles of forest roads are built deep into Sweden’s northern territory and on one of them excavator operator Eddie Sethsson is testing Engcon’s latest tiltrotator, the EC233.

Eddie operates a Volvo EC300D for Ottossons Åkeri AB in Strömsund and after a couple weeks of testing, he has only good things to say about Engcon’s new tiltrotator for excavators from 25 - 33 tonnes.

“The 233 feels stable and everything has worked just fine,” says Eddie when he stops for a chat. Previously, Eddie had an EC30 on the machine, but he’s put it aside while he tests the EC233. The Volvo is equipped with an excavator guidance system with tilt guiding from Novatron. Eddie wants to see if it’s possible to upgrade the software so that he can also connect the rotation function through engcon’s ePS system, which is easy to connect to the new tiltrotator.

On the same forest road, his Dad Seth Henriksson exposes stumps, rocks and frozen soil with a Komatsu 155 bulldozer. It’s worth mentioning here that Seth was one of the very first to test an engcon tiltrotator in the early 90s.
