With over 25 years of extensive research and development, Calibre is proud to offer the most superior pioneered tilting coupler on the market – the Heli-Tilt.
Manufactured from high quality steel and designed for work demanding rotating flexibility, the Heli-Tilt follows a robust design to ensure productivity is maximised and fuel costs are minimised. 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.
Covering the full range of excavators from the compact 1.5 ton machines up to 38 ton models, the tilting capability ranges from 180 degrees at the 8 ton level, 120 degrees at the 12 ton level up to 134 degrees at the 16-38 ton level. 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.
Helical teeth on the internal spline interlinking with matching teeth on the piston - engaged with hydraulic pressure - converts linear pressure into powerful shaft rotation. No external moving parts and hydraulic overload protection reduces maintenance issues.
Choosing your Tilting Device
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.
