Anders found the winning combination

Everybody dreams of finding the winning combination. For Anders Bad, it consists of a Cat 321D without a counterweight and an engcon EC30.

“I’ll continue using engcon; I simply can’t see any better alternative,” he says.

Anders works at EAG Entreprenad, a contractor in Östersund. In March he started working on the new Sundsvall stretch of the E4. He’s currently working for Svevia at the Skönsmon traffic interchange along with five units from EAG Entreprenad. The interchange will be the southern abutment of the new bridge across Sundsvallsfjärden bay. 

“We’ll start by building a new temporary road past Skönsmon so we can close off the E4,” says Anders.

He’s had 15 years’ experience of backhoe load-ers when he first tried the new Cat 321D 2008. The machine has no back-weight, and Anders laughs to think of everyone who said this would make the machine unstable.

“It’s exceptionally stable, and the absence of a back-weight makes it very manoeuvrable. I’ll never use a digger with a backweight again!”

Stands up to hard work

He’s equally categorical about the tiltrotator.

“I simply couldn’t do without one,” he says. 

“I used to use a tiltrotator of a different make, but the new excavator came with an EC30 attached.”

“My work is intensive and the tiltrotator takes a lot of strain. I’m really fascinated at how hard-wearing it is. It’s done about 5,000 hours of operation, and all I’ve had to do is replace the bushings.”

Another benefit of the engcon tiltrotator is its impressive strength.

“It has double-acting tilt cylinders, which makes it really strong. You don’t need to repeat movements and can do the jobs faster.”

Anders is clearly thrilled with his Cat and EC30. He enjoys his work in general, and this project in particular.

“The E4 is very busy with frequent bottlenecks. The new highway will be excellent when we’ve finished it.”

“My work is intensive and the tiltrotator takes a lot of strain. I’m really fascinated at how hard-wearing it is.”
