Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

So the answer is ‘No’, you can’t (easily/cheaply/economically) switch from buttons to rollers at a later date.

Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

I thought you’d possibly created the first toroidal tilt Engcon!!

Looks a bad day that to be fair, hopefully they’ll look after you.

Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

I’d imagine the lack of published price lists are simply because of the massive variation of specs available. It would probably add more confusion and could lead to potential customers dismissing an...

Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

I’ve gone down this route with a Rototilt and it’s fitted as Aiden described earlier - I can switch between tilt or grab with an existing redundant button on the machine’s left joystick so the right...

Re: Short term public liability insurance

Can you not take out a 12 month policy and then cancel it when you are finished? You will pay more than for 1 week pro-rata but I’m pretty sure most insurers will refund what hasn’t been used (less...

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

Use washing powder neat. Or cement dust. Ideally spread both out beyond the spill to ‘blend’ the stain. Then TFR and jet wash action, along with more TFR and a stiff brush. And then cross your...

Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

Druid - I think the 4 pipe systems are primarily aimed at machines that already have 2x proportional aux circuits with joystick controls. I understand where you are coming from re total expense to...

Re: The way forwards

Can you see a future where you still work for your current employer, but in a role you enjoy? Does such a job exist there (or could it?). Are there any relevant qualifications applicable to what you...

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

I’ve got one of those too - 55 plate last of the old shape (basically a Mazda). Fantastic truck - ours has been horrendously abused, is now on 175k miles (I bought it cheap at 100k and it’s had a...

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

I ran a Toyota Dyna tipper with the 2.5l Hilux engine in it for a number of years and it certainly wasn’t without its faults (almost all electronic, and therefore horrendously expensive). It had a...

Re: Hard life tree shear

Is there anything worth looking at that will cut and hold on a 6 tonner or is it too small a base unit to get anything useful that won’t let go?

Re: Tilt Rotator Dipper Spec

That’s not good at all!

Eddie, are there any of these systems that would fit/could be made to fit S40 hitches?

Re: Tilt Rotator Dipper Spec

I would certainly mirror what Eddie says here - I spoke to the 4 main manufacturers when purchasing (directly and through dealers) and the various degrees of choice, knowledge (and apparent lack of),...

Re: Tilt Rotator Dipper Spec

Gotcha - abroad then!... Different language and everything - fair play to your ability to understand English so well!

Having gone down the tilty route I’d possibly do something slightly...

Re: Tilt Rotator Dipper Spec

Oh, are you not in the uk? Sorry (you're still invited though!).

Just one spec when I bought mine - two sets of double acting proportional with thumb rocker switches as standard from the factory...

Re: Tilt Rotator Dipper Spec

Feel free to come and have a play on my tb260 (standard dipper, not sure of length) with Rototilt on s40 top and bottom if you are ever in the Crewe area, to get an idea stability wise. It's on 600mm...

Re: Tilt Rotator Dipper Spec

If you’re having a top quick hitch then just drop the tilty off if you are digging anything really hard that it struggles with. An S-type QH has a really low profile and will give better breakout...

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

Will a slosh coating stick to galv? You need an etch primer to get paint to stick, but I’m not sure about the chemistry involved.

Re: Tilty pond digging

I thought the music was ok tbh - better than silence. I’d prefer to hear the machine working though, but hard to edit smoothly.

Nice! What machine is that and what size/make is your bucket out of interest?

Re: CPS Rototilt Demo Day.

Looks a good day Aiden!

Are those hose retaining rings on the Wacker tipping link your design or part of the machine? They look a great idea - are they effective?
