MARKET REPORT COMPACT PLANT continued


The Lasco wood splitter attachment enables tree trunks to be quickly converted into firewood.


Simply drilling the tip of the cutter cone into the timber allows the wood to be directly lifted from above. This allows timber sorting and movement to be carried out in more confined spaces than those needed for a grab. When used on an excavator’s dipper arm, the Lasco splitter can quickly convert logs and tree trunks into usable firewood.


Promoting tiltrotator versatility


As well as showing other attachments, such as post drivers, stump grinders, tree shears, screening buckets, mounted compactor plates, forestry cutters, crusher buckets and hedge cutters, Exac-One continued its campaign to champion the advantages of equipping excavators with tiltrotators, allowing buckets and other attachments to be both angled and rotated. This year, the company showed the latest of such devices from Engcon, Kinshofer and Steelwrist.


The Kubota KX057-4 working with the Diga-Bara Xtra was equipped with an Engcon Tiltrotator EC05B. This featured Engcon’s Control System 3 which can provide a cost-effective solution by utilising a mini’s proprietary hydraulics and joysticks. Steelwrist demonstrated its X04 tiltrotator with XControl, coupled to a 1.2m-wide grading


bucket on a 3.6 tonne class Hanix H36C mini. This Swedish company is in the process of introducing its new generation XControl G2 control system. Kinshofer, best known for its loader crane attachments, showed its TR25NOX tiltrotator for 15 to 25 tonne excavators. Next year it intends to introduce the TR06NOX for minis. This manufacturer’s tiltrotators have rotary actuators, rather than side-mounted hydraulic cylinders, for the tilt function, in order to reduce the risk of site damage and to allow operation in confined spaces such as trench boxes.


At present, the use of tiltrotators on excavators in the UK is still the exception rather than the rule. However, by showing their practical advantages for such work as landscaping and golf course construction, Exac-One hopes to make many more converts.
