Casper Beck's considerations on the purchase of a machine and tiltrotator

We catch Casper in a field in Brenderup, where he is digging geothermal energy for a collective. Casper has agreed to be interviewed, as he is the first person in Denmark to receive the new CTR3-3 from Compacttilt.

Casper has previously rented excavators with a Compacttilt Rotator, which had the large control system (HS2) in it. The HS2 comes with a display where you can set several profiles, so that each employee can operate the machine exactly as he or she wants. He would like to use that for his own excavator.

When Casper had to buy a new excavator, he chose a Hitachi Zaxis 26U. He is a supporter of Hitachi, but a new supporter of Compacttilt.

“I’m quite fond of the fact that the tiltrotator comes without pistons. It suits me well when I have to dig narrow trenches for, for example, ground heating.”

After using the machine for well over 2 months, we went on a visit to hear Casper’s experience with the CTR3-3. Watch it in the video below.
