By Steve Ducker01 June 2022
Sweden-based manufacturer Steelwrist has expanded its tiltrotator range with the X02 for excavators up to 2.5 t.
Introduced in response to the installation ratio for tiltrotators on the smallest excavators is starting to grow globally the X02 is accompanied by a complete range of work tools.
The X02 tiltrotator which will be first shown at the Swedish Machine Fair (Svenska Maskinmässan) in Stockholm starting on 2 June, comes with either a Direct Fit or an S30 top for the connection to the excavator.
The coupler side (bottom) of the tiltrotator is available in a mechanical locking version as well as hydraulic locking for S30. According to Steelwrist, the hydraulic lock version with the integrated front pin hook is probably the only tiltrotator in this class that has work tool safety to support CE requirements.
The X02 is positioned between the smallest TCX tilt coupler for machines below 2 t and the X04 tiltrotator for excavators from 2.5 to 4 t. Steelwrist says that the focus with X02 has been to make a fully casted product with best strength-weight ratio and low building height.
“With the launch of the X02 we finally complete the tiltrotator range for excavators below 2.5 t,” said Steelwrist CEO Stefan Stockhaus.
“The X02 is a fantastic combination of innovation and robustness which customers have been waiting for.”
