Engcon smart quick hitch

Engcon has announced additional smart features on its tilt-rotators' quick hitch. The quick hitch had previously been adapted for installation of the detachable GRD grab cassette and SWD rotating sweeper, but Engcon has replaced most hoses in the quick hitch under the tilt-rotator with a simple modular system. The manufacturer says this near hose-free design reduces wear and maintenance needs, increases service life and has the flexibility of adding more hydraulic functions which makes it easier for both customer, reseller and service partner.

The new hitch is modular with only two hoses remaining for the locking cylinder. Therefore, it will now be easier to install Engcon's EC-Oil quick hitch system in the lower bracket, as the hydraulic blocks are now bolted directly into a distribution block without any hoses. Engcon says the design makes it simpler to install and retrofit hydraulic extra outlets to the company's detachable tools, and the new hitch also means an upgrade to the company’s high-flow swivel, which gets larger channels for increased hydraulic flow.

Engcon's new quick hitch is available for all markets and has been developed for EC209, EC214, EC219, EC226 and EC233. Sizes EC206 and EC204 are coming soon. In other news, the company recently announced a significant investment in its Swedish head office.
