Press Release - SMP Parts AB launch the ultimate safety and performance solution

23 May

SMP Parts AB launch the ultimate safety and performance solution - the combination of Swingotilt® tilt rotator and HardLock® quick coupler.

The Swingotilt® and HardLock® duo is built for Nordic conditions and enables machines to reach the impossible, with guaranteed grip for the toughest of tasks. This new hydraulic combination solution is the only one of its kind, currently available on the market. Combining Swingotilt® and HardLock® improves safety and productivity, meaning more complex tasks and higher levels of output can be achieved, for greater profitability. The unique solution offers extreme flexibility and enhanced safety for the arms and tools of loaders and excavators from 3 to 30 tons.

The groundbreaking Swingotilt® enables the excavator arm to make one endless rotation and tilt up to 40°, in each direction. This means that the arm and bucket can bypass various obstacles, release loads easier and reduces the need for manual assistance with maneuvers. The need for movement and manual assistance is radically reduced. Swingotilt® increases safety for both the machine operator and those working around the excavator.


The hydraulic quick coupler HardLock® was designed for a secure hold between the arm and bucket or tool and was developed in response to an industry driven demand. The quick coupler is totally mechanical, with no electronic functions and is equipped with double locking devices, to give the ultimate grip. The clip-on works with a traditional lockable knife wedge system, which offers increased safety with the tightest hold. The quick-mounting design is based upon the reversible ‘S’ models and has double locking elements which guarantee zero play against tools or connected equipment for less wear and tear and a longer life span.


SMP are launching the ultimate safety solution combination of Swingotilt® and HardLock®at the machine fair, MaskinExpo 2014 from the 22nd to the 24th of May at the Stoxa Outdoor Arena in Stockholm. SMP are exhibiting in booths #1154 and #1156.
