The RC5 is the tiltrotator for excavators weighing between 14-19 tonnes, and has been designed to handle breakout torques of up to 200 kNm. The RC5 has 25% higher tilting torque than its predecessor, the R5, a powerhouse for medium-sized excavators that allows you to take on more jobs as well as more profitable jobs. Tiltrotators in the RC series have been designed for your operating experience, energy efficiency and versatility. With pressure-compensated hydraulics, you can use the tiltrotator’s functions independently of each other to deliver optimum precision. In addition, thanks to the RC™ System proportional control system, you can control all the functions in one and the same excavation movement.

With the RC series, we have also created better conditions for you to work with high-flow functions, and extended your potential to use accessories that place high demands as regards hydraulic flows. With the RC5, you also gain access to Rototilt’s other functions and properties, such as a rotor housing cast in a single piece and oil-filled for maximum lubrication, minimal wear and an extremely long service life. You enjoy even more benefits in combination with the optional RC™ Joysticks and QuickChange™, as well as the SecureLock™ safety lock, which is always included as standard.
