Save money and work more efficiently!
Given the right set of tools, you can save a lot of money.
The tiltrotator is just such a tool.
Pipes, water & sewage
The versatility you need, you get from the engcon tiltrotator. You can work in narrow spaces without having to move the machine, and you can change tools quickly and easily.
Excavating for water supplies and drains frequently involves working in limited spaces; in certain cases there is not even space enough to drive in and out with the machine.
The solution is called the "engcon tiltrotator", making your excavator more versatile than you'd ever imagine. With a tiltrotator you can excavate at any angle and, for example, the ability to dig around a manhole or a stop-end is instantly there without you having to move the machine even once. engcon's tiltrotators enable you to rotate the bucket infinitely and you can also angle it to 45 degrees in both directions.
Not needing to move the machine means it becomes many times more efficient, you save fuel, reduce wear on the machine, the workplace becomes safer and you help protect the environment. Your clients and customers will quickly see the advantages and there's no doubt about who they will choose to work on the next project!
Tiltrotator resulted in more jobs
Frank Kluttig’s view from the cab of his Volvo EW160C might well make him slightly worried. The dug-up road in Herrnhut, Saxony is a web of electricity, telephone, water, gas and sewage lines to be replaced. And there is very little space for the machine to operate in. But Frank is cool as a cucumber as he starts digging.
“I wouldn’t be able to work in this narrow space without a tiltrotator. And even if I could, the job would need more workers with spades.”
Railway engineering work
The tiltrotator increases safety when working on the railway, and maximizes efficiency.
The tiltrotator increases safety when Working on railways with an excavator places enormous demands. Safety is the prime factor and it is here that engcon contributes with vital solutions. Using an engcon tiltrotator you transform your excavator into a flexible, efficient AND safe tool carrier.
A rail-bound machine has a limited scope of movement, and especially in lateral motion. With engcon's tiltrotator you can carry out lots of tasks that would have been impossible earlier. Just imagine a scenario as simple as excavating between two sleepers – easy... Drive the excavator to the required position, rotate the narrow bucket or grab at a 90 degree angle and dig sideways-on. A task that would be unthinkable without a tiltrotator.
A tiltrotator on the excavator allows offset excavation from the rails, along the rails; work on inclines is made possible and a fork frame can be used to handle goods and a grab attachment can be used to lift materials.
All of this can be achieved without unnecessary machine movements which are both troublesome and pose a risk to the surrounding area. Carrying out as many tasks as possible from one and the same position is both efficient and SAFE!
“When working on the railway the Tiltrotator is an absolute necessity”
When the railway line between Suonenjoki and Pieksämäki is renovated it’s all about precision and accuracy in all phases. That all the wheel excavators are equipped with engcon Tiltrotators is a must.
“Regardless of where the workplace is, the Tiltrotator is starting to be a ’must have’ item. But in railway work it’s an absolute necessity”, says Erkki Sormunen, works manager at Komsor.
Electrical, telecom & broadband
Excavations in these areas are often associated with a 'lack of space, narrow access and precision excavation'. Engcon's tiltrotators provide an elegant solution to such problems.
Thanks to its ability to rotate and tilt the bucket it's no longer necessary to constantly reposition the machine to get at the job.
Exposing existing cables is no longer difficult. Rotate the bucket through 90 degrees and then tilt it to a suitable angle to excavate beside, under or above an existing cable with the utmost precision.
The need for manual labour is minimized and so too is the risk of injury to personnel in the vicinity.
Tests show that cable trenching using the tiltrotator is up to 40 per cent more efficient, making whole projects more profitable and allowing estimates to be met.
“The tiltrotator is fantastic!”
In western France, almost all excavators are equipped with a boom swing – but more and more machine operators are realising the advantages of the engcon tiltrotator.
“Now I’ve got far more flexibility and don’t need to move the machine around like I did before,” says Laurent, a machine operator at Bouchet.
Convert your excavator to a multitasker for use in ways you never thought were possible.
Not only does actual excavation become so much more efficient and profitable with the engcon tiltrotator – thanks to its ability to tilt and rotate the bucket into positions previously impossible – it also minimizes the number of machine repositionings, thus reducing damage to land and increasing site safety.
The amount of spoil is also reduced thanks to its ability to excavate more precisely where required.
And when it's time for backfill you'll note that it's possible to shave off up to 50 per cent of the time, as everything can be performed from one and the same position.
It's the same thing with materials – noticeably reduced material spill also means backfilling is quicker and more profitable.
Excavation, water sewage
Pallet fork operations
A childhood dream that came true
As a 30 year-old Sten Larsen started his company Arvika Byggservice AB, and now is a well-established actor in the Arvika area, taking on most jobs within construction and earthworking contracting. And the company is in fact the result of a childhood dream.
“I remember so well when I wasn’t allowed to touch my friend’s toy excavator. Right there and then I decided to buy my own when I grew up”, explains Sten with a twinkle in his eye.
Road construction involves a number of different work situations, and engcon tiltrotators simplify tasks considerably.
Ditching, stripping, terracing. pipe laying and grapple operations, etc. no longer mean constantly repositioning the machine.
Tony is happy with the new EC219
New things are always special. So thinks Tony Bengtsson when he’s driving a new Hidromek 140W equipped with engcon’s new EC219. “The machine feels stable and versatile, and the combination with engcon’s new EC219 makes it feel really, really good”.
Along Route 86 some 20 km or so south of Bispgården, we find Tony Bengtsson at work. He’s an excavator driver at Sundsvalls Mark & Transport AB, working to clear the road side from the gravel that has accumulated along the road. These gravel edges appear after a couple of winters’ sanding and form a bank preventing water from running-off the road.
No work demands as much precision and feel as landscaping.
The grounds and surroundings must be shaped in such a way that they blend in with the local setting.
As often as not there are no drawings, and it’s down to your feel and imagination to create graceful, elegant landscaping.
With an engcon tiltrotator fitted to your machine this task is simplified considerably, and many creations would be impossible without engcon.
One look was sufficient for Florian
The first time Florian Wissner laid eyes on a tiltrotator, he made up his mind. He would have one of those! And so it was, and now, he cannot imagine working without an engcon tiltrotator.
“No, that is impossible. Now that I know all of the possibilities a tiltrotator offers, I cannot think of working without it.”
In the garden behind one of the houses along Kolpingstraße in the little town of Oplen, work is frantically underway to complete an extension. In the cab of a brand new Volvo EC25 equipped with an engcon tiltrotator EC02B, sits Florian Wissner and completes the levelling of the ground with a steady hand.
