Under the familiar slogan, "better without cylinders" HKS offers cylinder-free tilt technology for construction technology in the shape of its XtraTilt hydraulic rotary actuator.
Offering short delivery times, XtraTilt is also a durable, robust, high-quality sealed system that does not require any lubrication points due to its self-lubrication system. Thanks to the special deflectors on both sides, the HKS XtraTilt series prevent dirt from entering the housing as soon as they leave the factory, which means that they are easy to maintain, thus considerably reducing maintenance costs. No readjustment necessary even after many hours of operation. This means that the XtraTilt makes daily lubrication and maintenance routines entirely redundant. In addition, the actuator centring mechanisms on both sides guarantee more efficient load bearing and torque transmission characteristics.
The HKS XtraTilt increases the efficiency and productivity of the machinery it is fitted to.
The tilt angle is far greater than that offered by conventional ditch digging buckets with cylinders and therefore means that the attachments fitted are considerably more agile. In addition, the HKS design permits any attachment to be tilted, thus allowing you to work more conveniently and precisely. The HKS XtraTilt series gives users a choice of three standard tilt angles. In order to reduce costs, weight and installation height, HKS also offers 2 x 50° and 2 x 70° versions alongside the 2 x 90° model. The XtraTilt is composed of four wear-resistant components. There are 44 versions with 17 installation sizes, which are available with carrier device weights of up to 100 tonnes and holding torques of up to 165,000 Nm.
Using the HKS-XtraTilt you can tackle the most diverse tasks, for instance: Embankment, trench digging, metering, drainage or roadbuilding works. At the same time, the stable platform it provides allows you to work on inclined planes (hillsides) while holding and positioning the attached implements precisely. In general, it is compatible with quick release systems, carrier implements and tools from any manufacturer, which means that upgrading with HKS construction technology is as straightforward as possible.
