Tilt & rotate coupler is a great innovation that allows a contractor to complete excavation work 30–40% faster, work in confined areas and also use a bigger machine. Tilt & Rotate coupler also helps in change of attachments in 10 seconds!! Add twist, flexibility & efficiency to your excavator & backhoe loader
Increasing productivity is always the main criteria when purchasing equipment or attachments. Tilt & Rotate coupler has been popular for decades with great success in Europe & North America, just for that reason.

Allowing an excavator operator to tilt and twirl any attachment 360 degrees, the tiltrotator delivers versatility in a wide range of applications, including excavation, compaction, asphalt cutting, drain cleaning and pick- and-place work. Imagine digging around pipes or cleaning drains with equipment parked parallel to the road, grappling oddly angled concrete from a pile, cutting hard-to-reach bushes or placing various sizes of logs in the truck. You can do just anything!
Why Buy a Tilt & Rotate Coupler? 

Tilt-rotator is a hydraulic coupler mounted on an excavator and it allows the bucket or any attachment to be rotated 360 degrees and tilt 5 degrees to each side. A reason for increase in pro­ductivity is easy manoeuvrability into tighter areas and working precisely or for creating slopes any­ where from one to 45 percent. Earlier, one had to hand shovel material into or out of comers and tricky-to-reach areas that a standard bucket wont reach. It isn’t always possible to move the machine due to site conditions, trees, buildings and the like. Tilt-roator al­lows operator to use bucket to cut any combination of grades, profiles or contours with less wear and tear on the undercarriage and swing gear. Operator can manipulate materials and attach­ments from any angle due to finesse and dexterity of the Tilt-rotator, and yes, that’s a game changer.

In the hands of a skilled operator, a tiltrotator can turn a standard attachment into a powerfully flexible tool.  “A tiltrotator-equipped excavator offers enhanced value for customers, especially those working in tight, challenging jobsites that require precision and versatility. Tiltrotator, can dramatically reduce the time required to complete tasks such as digging, contouring and backfilling etc, increasing jobsite production. 

Some of the attachments paired with tiltrotators are buckets, grapples, rotary cutters, grass & bush cutters, vibe rollers & plate compactors. For most contractors, buckets are popular choices, as well as hydraulic grapples, which are great for landscaping and grabbing sections of pipes. 

Tiltrotators make a machine very, very versatile providing infinite ability with an attachment that gets an additional rotating or articulating capabilities making it more efficient. They increase productivity, they decrease the demand for manual labor on the jobsite, they increase safety, they’re versatile and they can be used in so many different applications. 
Tiltrotator is connected directly to the excavator’s arm. The tiltrotator is then connected to the excavator’s hydraulics and electrical system. Depending on the excavator’s extra hydraulics, control is adapted to suit different types of control systems. Most common connection takes place via a single or double-acting extra outlet on the arm, and the tiltrotator is controlled by a proportional control system known as DC2. The actual control unit is located in the cab, and the tiltrotator’s functions are controlled using joysticks that allow the operator control of the tilt, rotation and grip functions. Signals from the joystick and the control unit are received by solenoid valves on the tiltrotator, thus controlling the function selected. 
At Suretech, we are always looking to learn about new equipment, attachments, materi­als and techniques. Excav­ators have evolved from just a simple digging machine with one bucket to the incredibly capable and adaptable machines they are today. It’s hard to put into words how much more ac­curate and versatile the excavator becomes with the Tilt-rotator. It’s like going from 2D to 3D. Its much more efficient and it is good for business, and at the same time it delivers the type of high-quality finish the clients deserve
