Intermercato's line up of heavy duty rigid mount rotators are sourced from factories located in Sweden, Austria and Germany depending on the application.
A rigid mount rotator allows the operator to rotate the grab into exactly the right position for loading beams onto trucks, grabbing upright trees, stacking, positioning rocks, fence post work, sorting materials quickly at waste disposal sites and more.
The rotator and grab must be extremely strong when rigid mounted to cope with the sheer and thrust forces of the excavator. A pendulum rotator and grab is cheaper in comparison as the swinging action takes pressure off the unit.
Rigid mount rotators suits machines from 2-40 tonne operating weight.
Plumbing options: mount 6 port solenoid with switch wired back into the cabin, two sets of hammer piping or replumbing the pusher bar.
Rigid Mount Rotators
Intermercato Heavy Duty Gerotor Rotators - RMR series, suits excavators of 2-16 tonne operating weight.
RMR series use G-rotor technology to create a compact, high side load withstanding rotator. The axial and radial loading is due to the tapered roller bearing of the dual mounted, forged drive shaft. Designed for high operating pressures of 320 bar.
Fast operating speeds but not designed to hold vertical items steady (such as poles). See geared worm drive rotators for holding items steady in any plane.
RMR are also used as positioning rotators in special applications when pendulum mounted.
Worm Drive Rotators - WD and WGB series, suit excavators of 5-30 tonne in operating weight.
Worm drive rotators are DESIGNED TO HOLD LOADS AT ANY ANGLE. This is the main reason to use a worm drive, for positioning vertical poles, using a shear or chainsaw or where perfect holding of the load is required. The compromise is speed, however you can position the load extremely accurately.
The WGB series has been down graded in torque and speed to give you a much LONGER operating life. The rotators super low profile to keep the load center in tight has massive torque developed from the worm gears. Brass gears are used in the WGB series and steel gear in the WD series, both perfect in forestry applications.
Indexator Super Heavy Duty Vane Rotators - XR series, suits excavators of 10-35 tonne operating weight.
XR series are a low maintenance rotator based on proven vane motor technology, suitable for many rigid mount applications.
Very compact low profile to decrease load centre for improved lifting capacity, robust with strong bearings designed to handle heavy dynamic and static loads, positive and negative forces (pull/push) as well as side thrust.
With a hanger XR series can be used as a pendulum mount, especially for extreme applications including penciling in remote forest locations.
Some XR series are available in 6 port to operate forestry saws.
Extra hosing ports available to operate saw etc. Extra hosing ports available to operate saw etc. - models include XR500, XR600 and Indexator GV124S - 6 port.
