14 Mar 16 Trimble and Rototilt have combined their technologies to produce a tiltrotator attachment for excavators that has a computerised grade control system built in.

The software firm and the attachments specialist have combined the Trimble GCS900 grade control system with the Rototilt positioning kit.

"This allows the operator to integrate the Rototilt tiltrotator with a Trimble grade control system to achieve significantly better precision and productivity," said Rototilt vice president of marketing and sales, Per Väppling.

The combination allows the operator to plot both the height and rotation line, which makes the attachment more effective in construction jobs such as precision grading, excavation in confined areas or moving large volumes of earth.

"Our heavy equipment customers have been seeking a solution that allows excavator operators to leverage guidance for excavation but also control tiltrotator attachments," said Trimble marketing director Ryan Kunisch. “Working closely with Rototilt, we’ve been able to meet the need by optimising the Trimble grade control system’s performance on excavators equipped with Rototilt attachments allowing operators to be more accurate and efficient.”
