Steelwrist X12 Tiltrotator

The Steelwrist X12 is a tiltrotator designed for an excavator with an operating weight between 7 and 12 tons. Equipped with a Steelwrist your machine converts from being only a standard earth moving tool into a versatile platform that excels your work with any attachment. The extra ordinary tilt capabilities with a bi-directional tilt angle of 45°, coupled with the high rotatin torque makes sure you bring out the best of your machine and your tools. Steelwrist will give you a superior return on investment.

The X12 comes fully equipped with hydraulic connectors and the electrical system adapted to your specific needs. The wide range of control systems are all fully integrated and enable you to control all the Steelwrist functions directly from the cab. Both the upper coupler and the attachment coupler are available with hydraulic FPL (Front pin lock technology).

Control System

To get the most out of the X12 we recommend that you use our XControl system which is the most versatile on the market.


Gripper Cassette

The X12 with S45 or S50 can be equipped with a gripper unit which makes the X12 even more versatile. It can be used to pick-up and move heavy objects eliminating the need for additional lifting equipment and avoiding injuries on the ground staff. Once you have started to use a gripper unit you don’t want to be without it.


Hydraulic Functions

The X12 is always equipped with one extra hydraulic outlet where you can connect hydraulic attachments such as grabs.The extra outlet is always available and independent from the gripper cassette.

Quick Coupler Combinations

We recommend to use the symmetrical quick coupler standard, the S45 or S50 is used on X12, due to it’s robustness and low build height.

Other Options

The X12 can be equipped with central lubrication system from the factory which ensures proper lubrication over time without effort.
