A John Deere excavator - selected models will now have the option of being equipped with engcon's tiltrotators

John Deere has announced a preferred supplier agreement with engcon, a tiltrotator manufacturer.

As a part of the agreement customers can purchase select engcon tiltrotators through John Deere construction and compact construction equipment dealers and Hitachi excavator dealers, starting in the US and Canada in the second half of 2021.

Tiltrotator models ranging from the EC204 up to the EC233 will be available – these tiltrotator models match with the John Deere 26G through 345G and Hitachi ZX26 through ZX345 Excavator models.

Tiltrotators have long been popular in Scandinavian countries such as Norway, Sweden and Denmark, as well as some other countries in Europe, but their usage in North America has traditionally been low.

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. A tiltrotator-equipped excavator offers enhanced value for customers, especially those working in tight, challenging job sites or tackling applications that require precision and versatility, such as site development, underground work, and landscaping.

“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.”
