Engcon takes “innovative step” to offer automatic hydraulic connectivity as standard

ENGCON has announced it will be offering its EC-Oil automatic hydraulic attachment system as standard on its twin-hitch products.

The tiltrotator specialist said it will deliver the Q-Safe 60 machine hitch, fitted with the company’s EC-Oil fully automatic hydraulic coupling, when ordered in conjunction with the DC2 control system, as standard. This also applies to the company’s tiltrotator/DC2 control system top brackets.

“Hydraulic attachments and twin-hitch tiltrotator configurations are increasingly popular in the excavator market, so for us it was a logical step to put the two together as a standard product. It’s an innovative step for Engcon, and a great leap for the excavation industry,” said Engcon founder Stig Engström.

“The latest design of our popular EC-Oil connectors is the most robust and effective yet and it was a natural progression to standardise these in the twin-hitch tiltrotator configuration.”

Engcon said its automatic connector blocks allow operators to “quickly and easily” connect hydraulics, power and central lubrication systems between an excavator and tiltrotator without leaving the cab.

“You can take full advantage of the excavator’s full power and stability when you need it, or use the tiltrotator’s flexibility when required. With EC-Oil, you don’t need to compromise anymore – you can have both,” Stig Engström added.
