Engcon set to produce new hoseless modular system and high-flow swivels

Engcon, the world's leading manufacturer of tiltrotators, is set to start production of its new hoseless modular system that will make tiltrotators lighter and easier to service, while also allowing for a higher flow rate.

First introduced in the spring of 2018, the unique system enables the EC-Oil automatic oil connection system, the hydraulic connections for the GRD grab cassette, and the SWD rotating brush, to be retrofitted entirely without the use of hoses. Engcon is now ready to proceed from the prototype and preproduction stages to full-scale production.

The unique design makes installation simple and leaves the quick hitch 'uncluttered'. Because there is no need to run hoses when the block is bolted on, retrofitting Engcon's EC-Oil automatic oil connection system is now even easier – and it's just as easy to install and retrofit EC-Oil onto Engcon's new detachable GRD grab cassette and SWD rotating brush.

New high-flow swivel

Alongside the new modular quick hitch, Engcon has developed a new high-flow swivel, built for pressures of up to 350 bar. The swivel permits hydraulic flows of up to 200 litres per minute by feeding directly into the hydraulic functions, so no oil passes through the tiltrotator's valves. The new high-flow swivel also has a separate case drain line, allowing oil to be drained via the tiltrotator.

"This is the latest development of our unique modular concept, which allows excavator-operators to choose the products they want and easily incorporate others at a later stage. Our latest system eliminates problems linked to hoses moving or leaking, improving efficiency and safety across a range of products and activities," says Fredrik Jonsson, Research and Development Manager at Engcon Group.

Set for 2019 delivery

Modular quick hitches in sizes QS60 for EC214 and EC219 will be available from January 2019 in Nordic markets, and from May 2019 in other markets.

The QS70 for EC233 will be available in Nordic markets from January 2019, and in remaining markets from July 2019. The QS70 for EC226 will be available from March 2019 and October 2019 respectively.
