An excavator tilt hitch allows an excavator to tilt its attachments at various angles, enabling the user to perform more versatile and precise tasks, such as grading, levelling, sloping, trenching, and contouring. An excavator tilt hitch can also improve the safety and efficiency of the work by reducing the need to reposition the machine or change the attachments.

There are different types of excavator tilt hitches available in the market, but one of the most popular and widely used ones is the tilting quick hitch. A tilting quick hitch is a combination of a quick hitch and a tilting hitch. A quick hitch is a device that allows the operator to attach and detach different attachments quickly and easily without using tools or pins. A tilting hitch is a device that allows the operator to adjust the angle of the attachment up to 180 degrees.

A tilting hitch offers many benefits for both the operator and the owner of the excavator. Some of these benefits are:

  • It increases the productivity and versatility of the excavator by allowing it to use a wide range of attachments, such as buckets, rippers, grapples, augers, and hammers, for different applications.
  • It enhances the performance and accuracy of the excavator by allowing it to adjust the angle of the attachment according to the terrain and the task.
  • It reduces the wear and tear and maintenance costs of the excavator and its attachments by minimising the stress and strain on them.
  • It saves time and fuel by reducing the need to reposition the machine or change the attachments frequently.

Tilting hitches are suitable for various sizes and models of excavators, from mini excavators to large excavators. They are also easy to install and operate, as they usually come with a complete kit that includes all the necessary components and instructions.

However, not all tilting quick hitches are created equal. Some tilting quick hitches may have poor quality, design, or functionality that can compromise their performance and durability. That’s where you can rely on Norm Engineering to supply quality tilting quick hitches that get the job done every time.
