Latest Steelwrist innovations aim to improve site efficiency and safety

The X02

SOME new additions to Steelwrist’s product portfolio will be on display for the first time in the UK at Plantworx 2023.

The SQ50 range of quick couplers and tiltrotators for mid-sized excavators will be showcased, as well as the new X02 tiltrotator for excavators up to 2.5 tonnes.

The X02 – designed to meet demand for tiltrotators on even the smallest of excavators – is suitable for 1.5–2.5t diggers. The product is accompanied by a range of work tools, which Steelwrist said results in increased efficiency and versatility by converting compact excavators into ‘true tool carriers’.

Available in both direct mount and sandwich configurations, all models come with a hydraulic locking S30 attachment coupler with integrated front pin hook.

The X02 is positioned between the smallest TCX tilt coupler, for machines below two tonnes, and the X04 tiltrotator for excavators from 2.5 to four-tonnes. The manufacturer’s Quantum control system and a lower budget four-hose option are available.

“The X02 is a fantastic combination of innovation and robustness which customers have been waiting for”, said Joe Westman, country manager at Steelwrist UK.

There will be live demos on Steelwrist’s stand with the X02 tiltrotator on a Wacker Neuson ET18 excavator.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming visitors to our stand at Plantworx this year to experience how Steelwrist really can improve worksite efficiency and safety, by transforming the excavator into a true tool carrier.” Joe added.

​​The new range of SQ50 quick couplers and tiltrotators, meanwhile, is available for 7-13t excavators. Both the S50 and SQ50 Steelwrist quick couplers are casted from steel and meet the specifications of the Open-S standard for fully automatic quick couplers, allowing connection with other brands meeting the Open-S standard. The X12 and X14 tiltrotators are now available in the SQ50 configuration.

“With the introduction of our SQ50 fully automatic quick couplers and tiltrotators, Steelwrist are changing the game in the growing midi excavator segment,” Joe said. “Flow capacities of up to 120 litres per minute, with minimal back pressure, allows for efficient use of hydraulic tools with higher flow requirements.”
