Kinshofer’s new Nox Tiltrotator attachments for excavators come in five sizes, all designed to be compact with no protruding tilt cylinders.
They also feature 360-degree continuous rotation and are designed for low maintenance, the company says. The attachment has only two greasing points, fewer wear parts and hydraulics integrated into the cast housing.
The five new models attach to excavators with operating weights ranging from 3 to 25 tons. The TR06NOX is for excavators with an operating weight of 3 to 6 tons. There is a TR10NOX for 5 to 10 tons. The TR14NOX is for 10 to 14 tons. The TR19NOX is for excavators from 14 to 19 tons, and the TR25NOX attaches to excavators with operating weights from 18 to 25 tons.
Kinshofer also offers a range of tools for the tiltrotators, including clamshell buckets, demolition and sorting grabs, and forks. A gripper can be integrated into the lower quick coupler that can be used to position rods, poles or curbstones while the other attachments remain mounted, the company says. A preset bucket package that includes a grading, backhoe and trench bucket is also an option.
The attachments are operated by two joysticks. Tilt and rotation are controlled by proportional solenoid valves and can be run simultaneously. The control system can operate up to 10 profiles and can be configured from a laptop computer.
