Excavator owner-operators no longer have to travel to trial tiltrotator-equipped diggers with Engcon’s new service.
Tiltrotators are excavator attachments that resemble hydraulic wrists, allowing greater range of movement than unequipped diggers, quicker attachment changes and more complex digging tasks. The concept, which is new to the UK but virtually standard in Scandinavia, often results in huge leaps in operator productivity.
Engcon, the UK’s leading tiltrotator manufacturer, established the country’s first dedicated test-drive centre at CTA in Doncaster in 2015 and is extending the service to send a fully tiltrotator-equipped mini digger and demonstration driver to prospective customer’s sites, allowing owner-operators to try the concept in familiar surroundings before buying.
Robert Hunt, Engcon UK’s managing director, says: “British excavator operators like a hands-on experience; a real test in real conditions of the equipment they are looking to invest in. I’m keen to give them every opportunity to do that.
“This year we’ll be at three times as many events as 2017 and we’re investing a lot of resource into giving operators and plant hire companies the chance to see the huge effect a tiltrotator has on the type of work an operator can handle with one digger.”
Engcon Area Sales Manager, Mark Clare, a NPORS qualified Training Provider and Assessor on all classes of excavator as well as the newly-developed Tiltrotator skills and Health and Safety awareness course, will lead on potential test drives and demonstrations.
“I’m looking forward to visiting potential customers and actually helping them on live projects while I demonstrate how a tiltrotator can transform digging” says Mark.
“Normally, giving customers an informative demonstration of a product takes time out of their days and, critically, out of their projects. This offer allows us to show people the positive experience of life with a tiltrotator in a way that actually helps move things along.”
Engcon is the only tiltrotator manufacturer with a complete customer resource centre at a central location in the UK, offering sales, service, fitting, repair and training. To book your test drive, call +44 1684 297168 or email email@example.com
