Through a supply agreement with engcon, tiltrotator models ranging from the EC204 up to the EC233 will soon be available through John Deere construction and compact construction equipment and Hitachi excavator dealers. These models are matched with the John Deere 26G through 345G and Hitachi ZX26 through ZX345 excavator models.

“We strive to provide our customers with product and technology offerings that improve their performance on the job site. When we launched our Smart Industrial strategic direction, we committed to investing our resources in solutions that deliver increased value to our customers, such as this agreement with engcon,” said David Thorne, senior vice president, sales & marketing, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “Our excavators are known for their multi-functioning capabilities and hydraulic control, and, with the addition of the engcon tiltrotators, we’re providing additional solutions to help our customers increase productivity and efficiency on the job.”

When equipped, a tiltrotator enables an excavator bucket or other attachments to rotate 360 degrees around the axis and tilt up to 45 degrees side to side. The rotating axis and tilt provides more versatility in tackling applications that require precision such as site development, underground work and landscaping. Using a tiltrotator, the time required to complete tasks such as digging, contouring and backfilling is significantly reduced, increasing job site production and enhancing the operator’s user experience. Additionally, with a tiltrotator, wear on the machine’s tracks is decreased as a result of reduced travel.

“Through this agreement we’re building on the strengths of engcon and John Deere to enable contractors to optimize machine efficiency and productivity on jobsites that require versatility and precision,” said Krister Blomgren, CEO, engcon Group. “By offering our lineup through the John Deere and Hitachi excavator dealer networks, customers will have streamlined access to some of the industry’s top products.”

The engcon tiltrotator lineup will be available at John Deere and Hitachi excavator dealers in the United States and Canada starting in the second half of 2021.
