25 years in the making, the most sophisticated tilting coupler on the market
Manufactured from high-quality steel and designed for work demanding rotating flexibility, the Heli-Tilt follows a robust design to ensure productivity is maximized and fuel costs are minimized. The huge attraction of this Heli-Tilt Coupler is that its width is close to the width of the dipper arm. This is ideal in confined spaces such as digging narrow trenches. Alongside compatibility with GPS systems, the Heli-Tilt Coupler comes equipped with the latest in quick hitch technology, the new Sure-Grip Coupler. The addition of the Sure-Grip allows a one-step connect and disconnection process, establishing a fast and intuitive attach and detach mechanism for smooth operational use.
Tilting ranges from 120°-180° depending on the Heli-Tilt size. No external moving parts and hydraulic overload protection reduces maintenance issues.
The purchase of any tilt coupler warrants careful consideration of the functions the tilt coupler is expected to perform. The Heli-Tilt Coupler is ideal in conditions where space is confined and rotating flexibility is important - and as such - it is an important part of our tilting coupler range. However, while it is robust, the very nature of the actuator setup means that some thought has to be given to using the Heli-Tilt where it is planned to use more aggressive attachments such as Rock breakers and other such equipment. Provided equipment such as a Rock Breaker is of an average size, matched to suit the weight class of the machine there will be no problem in using such attachments with a Heli-Tilt Coupler - but problems can emerge where maximum permitted and outsized equipment is used.
