Rototilt® R4

The R4 is the advanced tiltrotator for excavators between 10-16 metric tons, built to handle the most demanding of jobs. The updated model has a new rotation sensor in the end section that enables more accurate positioning.


Right cast goods at the right place ››

A cast rotor housing is both stronger and lighter than welded alternatives. The thickness of the casting is optimised according to the load on the various parts.

‹‹ Smoother operation with new worm gear

The new worm gear boasts improved geometry and stricter wheel and screw manufacturing tolerances, providing smoother operation and reduced friction. The worm gear is also equipped with a new worm screw with integrated lubrication channels, which improves and further extends the service life of the tiltrotators.

Large bearing surfaces effectively absorb and distribute excavation forces.

‹‹ Smart attachment frame

With a direct attachment frame, you get lower overall costs, lower weight and more digging power. For maximum flexibility, we have developed our own, patented multi-attachment frame.

Powerful cylinder solutions with load management ››

All our cylinders feature load management as standard, which increases workplace safety; the load is secure, even in the event of a hose rupture, for example

Self-lubricating bushings on the cylinder attachments mean fewer lubrication points and consequently simpler maintenance.

Choose between single-action or double-action cylinders. Single-action for as compact a solution as possible and double-action to maximise power. 

‹‹ High safety

All solutions and parts are tested to increase safety, durability and ease of use. From quality assurance of all component parts, to control systems, couplings and tool locking. With SecureLock™ you can be sure that your tools are correctly attached from the start and that they stay that way.

‹‹ Smart control systems

With Rototilt® you can choose the control system that optimises your excavator and contributes to increased performance, better handling and more options for settings. Choose between ICS, TLE and TE. Your tiltrotator works optimally even in very difficult operating conditions.

More precise positioning with new rotation sensor ››

The sensor in the hydraulic motor has been replaced with a rotation sensor in the housing. The new sensor uses absolute readings with greater precision, providing even better positioning together with Rototilt RPS.

Hydraulic quick coupler ››

Provides faster switching between hydraulically controlled tools. With QuickChange™ we can offer integrated hydraulic quick coupling in the quick coupler.

‹‹ Electric swivel

With an electric swivel (optional), you can control the valves on the tools coupled to your tiltrotator. In this way, even more advanced tools can be used.

Hydraulic high-flow swivel ››

With a high-flow swivel (optional), you can use flow-intensive tools at up to 200 litres/min. and 350 bar.

‹‹ Long service life

Sturdy, amply dimensioned pins, shafts and bushings make your tiltrotator from Rototilt® robust and long-lasting.

Stability and strength ››

A very strong bolted joint holds the rotor housing and the quick coupler in a firm grip.

‹‹ High performance

Rototilt tiltrotators operate at high system pressures. This provides better performance for all functions – such as for important tilt and twist manoeuvres, and more clamping force when using a grapple.
