Tiltrotator versatility displayed on Swedish site

Digger Blogger | 19:30, Wed October 10 2012

There is growing interest in the tiltrotator concept on the site where I am working, despite one or two people still not being able to see the benefits. Following a discussion about this on Facebook, our Swedish friend Robert Carlsson posted this video to show the kind of work he performs with his machine.

In this video Robert is seen operating his Volvo EW160 wheeled excavator, which is fitted with an Engcon EC20 tiltrotator c/w grapple to perform various handling jobs during a drainage job. The addition of the grapple makes these tools even more useful, enabling the operator to pick up and place anything that might normally have to be done by hand, or by using slings/chains.
