Most of the time a rotator will be spinning in free air - perhaps above a sorting grab - so the torque that you get with a worm drive isn't needed. Similarly, a tilting hitch isn't used for offset digging: The angle is set and the digging force is provided by the excavator's rams, so a Helac unit is enough to do the job.

Basically, if you see one of these at the right price; my suggestion would be to re-purpose it into a tilty.


believe me, I been trying with that one .... but can never get a figure for it .... be time to try again shortly I think

Top end'd be no sweat ..... got a fair bit of 'makings' there to start with

Reckon that's S50s Robert .... weighs 180 kgs ... sound 'bout right ??
If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!
