Engcon begins production of detachable grab cassettes for its biggest tiltrotator

Engcon, the world-leading manufacturer of tiltrotators, has for some time been the world’s sole producer of a unique grab cassette for excavators in the 1.5-33 tonne class. The range allows excavator-operators to connect or disconnect the grab cassette in under a minute, using a simple system that requires no manual fastening or connection of hydraulics.

The GRD70 grab cassette – the latest in Engcon’s range – is now set to enter production. Designed for use with Engcon's largest tiltrotators, the EC233 and EC226, in conjunction with the QS70 quick hitch, the GRD70 has a gripping force of 2.2 tonnes and grab width ranging from just 13mm to almost one metre.

The production of the GRD70 follows its predecessors: Engcon’s GRD20 grab cassette for EC214 and EC219 tiltrotators with the QS60 quick hitch was launched first, followed by the GRD10 for the EC209 tiltrotator and QS45 and QS50 quick hitches.

As with the smaller models, GRD70 operators can connect or disconnect the grab cassette in around one minute using a simple procedure. This process activates the locking mechanism, which allows the hydraulics to be connected or disconnected at the same time as the grab cassette is attached or released. It's the ultimate solution for anyone who wants to quickly and easily disconnect the grab cassette when it's not needed.

The EC233 with GRD70 grab cassettes will be available from January 2019 in Nordic markets, and from July 2019 in all other markets.
