Rototilt: Tiltrotator models with enhanced control system features

Rototilt has introduced three new tiltrotator models with enhanced control system technology for excavators weighing up to 30 metric tons.

The R4 model can be used for 10- to 16-metric ton excavators, while the R6 model is designed for 15- to 24-metric ton excavators. The R8 model is for excavators up to 30 metric tons.

The new models feature optional rotate and tilt sensors, as well as Rototilt's "innovative control system" (ICS). The units allow operators to see tilt and rotation angles in a compact display monitor, according to Rototilt.

Other features include proportional control of all Rototilt functions using one auxiliary hydraulic circuit, a shake/pulse mode for spreading materials and Rototilt speed settings for four different operators.
