The X18 is designed with the goal to make your excavator more versatile, precise and profitable. It offers the ultimate combination of power and precision for excavators with an operating weight between 12 and 18 tons.

The rock-solid design with high torque, low building height and low weight gives you excellent operating characteristics. It comes with our recognized bi-directional tilt angle of 45°.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 X18 we recommend that you use our XControl system which is the most versatile on the market.


Gripper Cassette

The X18 version with S60 quick coupler can be equipped with a four finger gripper unit which makes the X18 even more versatile. It can be used to pick-up and move heavy objects eliminating the need for additional lifting equipment and avoiding injuries to the ground staff.
