EC206, the fourth generation 2 model from engcon

engcon, world-leader in tiltrotators for excavators in the 1.5–32 ton weight classes, unveils the EC206 – the fourth generation 2 model – at the 2014 MaskinExpo show. Over time, the model will replace today’s EC05B. The big EC206 innovation is its
6-channel swivel.

The EC206 is specially adapted to suit excavators in the 4–6 ton range and rounds off the Generation 2 series that includes big brothers EC209 (6–9 ton range), EC219 (14–19 tons) and EC226 (19–26 tons).

Among other major innovations the EC206 model will be fitted with a 6-channel swivel developed from a completely new design, and which is also fitted with two NG6 valves – the same valves used on the larger models – to handle greater flows to and from such things as the extra connections.

What’s more, the EC206 boasts a 45 degree tilt angle, integrated central lubrication, increased bushing sizes, and greater ease of service.

“Generation 2 is engineered entirely to suit the new-generation excavators that place completely different demands on technology and material quality than earlier machines,” says Fredrik Jonsson, Design Manager at engcon.

“Because today’s excavators are so technologically advanced and extremely strong, equipment has to keep up.”

Fredrik Jonsson mentions that operators of the other Generation 2 models appreciate many of their refinements, especially the integrated central lubrication.

“Indeed, we’ve had a fantastic response to the factory-installed, integrated central lubrication system. It saves time and money at the equipment workshop, and contractors get to keep their new machines in great shape,” says Fredrik Jonsson.

engcon has announced that a preliminary EC206 series will be on sale in the Nordic region during the autumn. Series production is anticipated to pick up speed at the end of the year, when the model is launched in markets further afield.
