French company Arden Equipment is introducing the Arden Tilt Rotor (ATR), a hydraulic device that enables tilt and rotation of attachments at the end of an excavator.
It is mounted between the carrier and the tool, and is said to increase the versatility of the machine by eliminating additional equipment on site.
The company is launching the ATR006 for excavators from 3-6tonnes; the ATR010 for excavators from 6-10tonnes, and the ATR 015 for excavators from 10-15tonnes.
This new feature is compatible with the Arden Quick Hitch (QA) system, which also allows operators to quickly change tools on the excavator.
Arden Equipment says its Tilt Rotor, which is operated by using joysticks, and which allows the operator to perform advanced and precision work without moving the machine, allows 360° rotation and 40° tilt in all directions.
