When Sean Coghlan, owner of Shamrock Earthworks Ltd., first attended CONEXPO trade show in 2008, he was looking to find equipment and ideas that would make his business more efficient. He was intrigued by a device called a tiltrotator, demonstrated by dealers representing engcon, a Swedish firm. But he'd just started his Calgary, Alberta-based company, and knew he had to wait a while to make a significant investment.
Engcon has announced a significant update to its EC-Oil system. Engcon says that it is the only tiltrotator manufacturer in the world to offer an automatic attachment system without upcharges.
