MTB Tracks

When you need to make burms and turns for MTB tracks, the Compacttilt™ CTR2 is a good choice for a tiltrotator for the task.

With piston-free rotation, it becomes easier to make turns on the courses, exactly as you want them – and thanks to 2×50°, the turns get extra edge.


Pumptracks are when BMX and MTB tracks must have uneven bumps, where you use your arms to pump speed in the bike.

Here are Chris, Hitachi and CTR2 to dig and create these bumps.

CTR2 (1 to 2 Tons)

Installation height from: 260 mm

Width: 253 mm

Weight: 65 kg

Quick Coupler: S30-150, S30-180, MH30
