Rototilt R2

Compact machines are increasingly popular, they are stronger and more technically advanced than before. The new Rototilt R2 tiltrotator is based on the same concept as the larger models with integrated swivel, replacing its predecessor the RT20B.

The big news with the R2 is the capability to use all the new smart features enabled by our Innovative Control System (ICS) and SecureLock™. Another enhancement is that the new tiltrotator can handle significantly higher breakout forces than its predecessor, which gives an increased machine capability range, now from 3 to 6.5 tonnes.

There are many benefits of the new R2 tiltrotator The design is based on the larger models of the Rototilt R platform with an integrated swivel. It is stronger with 12% higher permissible breakout force, from 38 kNm to 43 kNm. The R2 enables double the flow rate for extra functionality, and it now suits larger excavators (3-6.5 tonnes).

“During development of the R2, we listened to our customers' thoughts and ideas in creating a very powerful tiltrotator in this size class,” says product manager Sven-Roger Ekström. “For example, increased hydraulic capacity and smarter control systems.”

The big news is Rototilt’s innovative Control System (ICS). With the supplied display, operators gain easier adjustment options and a better overview of the tiltrotator system.

For a safer working environment around the machine, there is SecureLock™ for safe tool changes.

“The launch of quick couplers S40, S45 and S50 is timely,” says Sven-Roger Ekström. “Together with the new R2, the ICS control system and SecureLock™, customers obtain a unique whole where everything is controlled from one and the same display.”

R2 is being shown for the first time at Intermat in Paris.

Benefits with R2:

  • Innovative Control System (ICS)
  • SecureLock™
  • Compatible with larger machines (3-6.5 tonnes)
  • Fewer lubrication points
  • Increased max. breakout torque (42.5 kNm)
  • Electric swivel
