Rototilt® R8

The perfect tiltrotator for those heavier job such as earth-moving and road work. Optimised for excavators between 23-32 tonnes.

The updated model has several improvements:

  • New worm gear for even smoother operation and less friction.
  • A rotary sensor in the end section for more accurate positioning together with RPS.
  • New high-pressure seals and smarter nipples
  • Beefier construction with new lower radial bearings in bronze


Several benefits

The R8 tiltrotator also provides all of Rototilt's other unique benefits:

  • An oil-filled rotor housing cast in a single piece for maximum lubrication and minimal wear, which means very long service life.
  • Rototilt's control system (ICS) boosts your tiltrotator with smart functions and outstanding user-friendliness, enabling both productivity-enhancing automation (RPS) and market-leading safety (SecureLock™) in one and the same system.
  • Simpler maintenance and longer service life thanks to integrated carrier plates, improved central lubrication (ILS) and a new type of hydraulic coupling.

Powerful cylinder solutions

Double-acting tilt cylinders can be fitted with load-holding valves for extra safe management of the load.

Oil provides the best lubrication

The worm gear will work best if immersed in an oil bath. An oil-filled rotor housing provides maximum lubrication and minimal wear and tear, which equates to a very long service life. Oil is significantly better than grease at extreme temperatures, and provides better and simpler handling when servicing.

Stability and strength

A very powerful screw joint holds the housing and worktool in a tight grip.

Longer service life

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

Smart control systems

With a Rototilt® tiltrotator you can choose the control system that optimizes your excavator and helps improve performance and handling with enhanced settings options. Your tiltrotator will operate at an optimum level even in the toughest working conditions.

High performance

Rototilt® uses a higher system pressure than other makes on the market. This means better function performance – e.g. in the important tilt and torque movement – and more clamping force when using a grapple.

Powerful worm gear

Large bearing surfaces absorb and distribute the digging force effectively.

Smart attachment fitting

Direct attachment means lower total cost, lower weight and more digging power. For maximized flexibility, we have developed our own, patented multi-fixing.

Protected hydraulic motor

The specially-designed cover for the hydraulic motor is integrated into the cast rotor housing and protects against impact damage and supports it underneath.

Right casting in the right place

A cast rotor housing is both stronger and lighter than welded alternatives. The thickness of the casting is optimized to suit the load on each part.

Improved safety

All solutions and details are tested and approved to maximize safety and user-friendliness. This includes everything from quality assurance of all associated components, to control systems, and the connection/unlocking of worktools.

Hydraulic Quick Connection - QuickChange™

Enables quick changes between hydraulic worktools. Thanks to our collaboration with our partners, we can offer built-in hydraulic Quick Connection in the quick coupler.

Individual testing

The tiltrotator you ordered is tested before delivery. All functions are controlled and guaranteed. Every Rototilt® tiltrotator is also weighed individually before it leaves the factory.


Electric swivel (option) provides the opportunity to control valves on worktools connected to Rototilt®. This enables even more advanced worktools to be used. A high-flow swivel (option) allows the use of worktools with high-flow requirements up to 200 l/min. at 300 bar.
