Much more stable with the new EC226

Bo-Göran Persson, excavator operator at Trollenäs Schakt, recently had engcon’s new Tiltrotator, the EC226, fitted to his Zaxis 210.

The excavator is a few years old, but still in sufficiently good condition for the company to decide to continue operating it. The only thing replaced was the Tiltrotator that was fitted when the machine was bought.

“This Tiltrotator feels much more stable then the old one which was of a different brand”, says Bo-Göran about his new EC226.

Sven-Eric Nilsson started Trollenäs Schakt AB in 1959 as a machine station. A business that constantly grew, and at the end of the 1960’s the business went into running contracting work.

“It was probably because my interest for machines was greater than for farming activities, so the contracting business took over more and more”, says Sven-Eric Nilsson who now has his son Paul with him in the company. 

“Paul works more on marketing and sales. We complement each other well, as I am often out at the sites and I’m often sitting in one of our machine trailers”, continues Sven-Eric.

We meet Sven-Eric just outside Eslöv. The company is building a 1,100 square meter workshop with five large workshop positions. In addition there is a large office and personnel areas. 

Want to grow more

“Right now the space looks enormous, but we wanted to build to be able to grow even further”, explains Sven-Eric as we move between piles of plasterboard and scaffolding in the large workshop that stands on 8,000 square meters of their own land which was acquired a while ago.

With us is Bo-Göran Persson, excavator operator, who recently had engcon’s new Tiltrotator, the EC226, fitted to his Zaxis 210.

The excavator is a few years old, but still in sufficiently good condition for the company to decide to continue operating it. The only thing replaced was the Tiltrotator that was fitted when the machine was bought.

“This Tiltrotator feels much more stable then the old one which was of a different brand”, says Bo-Göran about his new EC226.

“Since I had already found out about the usefulness of the extra five degrees that it tilts, it is great that all the lubrication points are routed to one and the same place”, continues Bo-Göran.

Before we leave Sven-Eric and Bo-Göran we stop underneath the large company sign hanging on one of the gables. The sign bears witness to the fact that this is a company that’s been around for a while. Besides the company name there are pictures of an Åkerman H16 and a Scania 111 – two typical vehicles for the 1970’s when contracting in Skåne was bursting at the seams.

“This Tiltrotator feels much more stable then the old one which was of a different brand.”
