Detroit engines are built for power and efficiency. Along with ease of maintenance, they have the longest service intervals in their class.

Tiltrotators supercharge excavator productivity

There is no one main application for a tiltrotator. It can be used for just about anything an excavator can do, from any type of bucket work to grapple work or any other attachment job that can benefit from being able to rotate or tilt.

When a contractor is looking to get the most out of their excavator they utilize a variety of attachments that can get more jobs done.
