Rototilt® R3

FOR EXCAVATORS 6-12 TONNES. The tiltrotator R3 is adapted to an increasingly popular segment in the excavator market and can handle higher machine weights up to 12 tonnes.

The R3 is available with ICS - Rototilt's smart control system - the markets most flexible. Add the SecureLock™ option, which confirms that the attachment is correctly coupled, and you have one of the world’s safest tiltrotators.

Key advantages of the R3 are the smart design with integrated swivel (with the options of a High Flow Swivel and electric swivel), enhanced hydraulic connections as standard (ORFS), fully integrated central lubrication and load-holding valves on the tilt cylinders. The hydraulic system is developed to operate at up to 250 bar for maximum performance.

  • Extensive options when it comes to the selection of control systems and configuration
  • ICS – a user-friendly and reliable control system with extensive flexibility
  • SecureLock™ – confirms engagement and continuously monitors locked attachment status
  • RPS – position sensors compatible with the industry’s leading excavating systems
  • Efficient hydraulics and the tiltrotator’s low weight help minimise the machine’s fuel consumption

Right cast goods at the right place ››

A cast rotor housing is both stronger and lighter than welded alternatives. The thickness of the casting is optimised according to the load on the various parts.

‹‹ Powerful worm gear

Large bearing surfaces effectively absorb and distribute excavation forces.

Protected hydraulic motor ››

The specially designed guard for the hydraulic motor is integrated with the cast rotor housing and protects it against impact and shocks from beneath

‹‹ Smart attachment frame

With a direct attachment frame, you get lower overall costs, lower weight and more digging power. For maximum flexibility, we have developed our own, patented multi-attachment frame.

Powerful cylinder solutions with load management ››

All our cylinders feature load management as standard, which increases workplace safety; the load is secure, even in the event of a hose rupture, for example.

Self-lubricating bushings on the cylinder attachments mean fewer lubrication points and consequently simpler maintenance.

Choose between single-action or double-action cylinders. Single-action for as compact a solution as possible and double-action to maximise power. 

‹‹ Smart control systems

With Rototilt® you can choose the control system that optimises your excavator and contributes to increased performance, better handling and more options for settings. Choose between ICSTLE and TE. Your tiltrotator works optimally even in very difficult operating conditions.

‹‹ Excellent safety

All solutions and parts are tested to maximise safety, durability and ease of use. From quality assurance of all component parts, to control systems, couplings and tool locking. With SecureLock™ you can be sure that your tools are correctly attached from the start and that they stay that way.

Hydraulic quick coupler ››

Provides faster switching between hydraulically controlled tools. With QuickChange™ we can offer integrated hydraulic quick coupling in the quick coupler.

‹‹ Electric swivel

With an electric swivel (optional), you can control the valves on the tools coupled to your tiltrotator. In this way, even more advanced tools can be used.

Hydraulic high-flow swivel ››

With a high-flow swivel (optional), you can use flow-intensive tools at up to 53 gpm @ 4350 psi (200 litres/min. and 350 bar).

‹‹ Long service life

Sturdy, amply dimensioned pins, shafts and bushings make your tiltrotator from Rototilt® more robust and long-lasting than any other tiltrotator on the market.

Stability and strength ››

A very strong bolted joint holds the rotor housing and the quick coupler in a firm grip.

‹‹ High performance

Rototilt's tiltrotators work with higher system pressure than other brands on the market. This provides better performance for all functions – such as for important tilt and torque manoeuvres, and more clamping force when using a grapple.
