John Deere enters global preferred supplier agreement with engcon

John Deere 210 LG excavator

John Deere has entered a preferred supplier agreement with engcon. Tiltrotator models ranging from the EC204 up to the EC233 will be available through John Deere construction and compact construction equipment and Hitachi excavator dealers. 

These tiltrotator models match with the John Deere 26G through 345G and Hitachi ZX26 through ZX345 excavator models. Engcon tiltrotators enable an excavator bucket or other attachment to rotate 360 degrees around the axis and tilt up to 45 degrees side to side. A tiltrotator-equipped excavator offers enhanced value for customers, especially those working in tight, challenging job sites or tackling applications that require precision and versatility, such as site development, underground work, and landscaping.

Using a tiltrotator, the time required to complete tasks such as digging, contouring and backfilling is significantly reduced, increasing job site production and enhancing the operator's user experience. Additionally, with a tiltrotator, wear on the machine's tracks is decreased as a result of reduced travel. 

One of the standout features of the engcon lineup is the quick coupler system, EC-Oil, available for the John Deere 75G through 380G excavators and Hitachi ZX75 through ZX380 models. EC-Oil allows operators to change attachments equipped with hydraulic and electrical connections from the machine cab, increasing productivity and efficiency.

The engcon tiltrotator lineup will be available at John Deere and Hitachi excavator dealers in the United States and Canada starting in the second half of 2021.
