800clc. A walking excavator? I think we call it a spider here if I'm thinking of the same thing. Ya I drive truck if I have to but try to avoid it if I can.

liamkav. Clean looking machine. How bad is the loss in breakout force with the tilty? Ive noticed the european equipment has a lot more options on it than what we have. Is the lighting package from the factory? I tried to get pricing from 3 different engcon dealers in the U.S. Two of them eventually got me numbers(after emailing multiple times)and one would never call me back. The rototilt dealer is on the other side of canada in Ontario and would return an email within an hour even on the weekend so I went with them. Some of the dealers here act like there doing you a favor selling you gear. Delivery date is March 3rd so i should have it installed not long after. Rototilt is going to fly a tech out to help the dealer install since no one in this area has even heard of one.

Look forward to hearing about how it all goes - keep the updates coming.

Was new in that pic its not so clean now there is a loss of breakout but its not bad i haven't found anything it can't dig yet and with the top hitch i can always drop it off only takes two minutes, the pc170 is not short on power so you should be fine.

The lights were fitted by the dealer, not an official option but within reason they'll do what you want, looking forward to seeing yours what spec Rototilt are you having?

There is an Engcon dealer in Innisfail, AB but I found them kinda arrogant I used a Rototilt on a 5 tonne New Holland a few years ago I doubt you'll have any trouble. Yeah I'm trying to work out something with Menzi-Muck but it hasn't been easy having to deal directly with the factory since they have little or no representation in Canada.

Welcome to the forum Ryan. "The post on it" hope you found more than the 1 thread talking about tiltrotators they've caused a fair bit of discussion over the past few years.

You've made a decision and that can only be a good thing. Really pleased you've gone the S coupler route, although that's possibly the only option available to you. A mine field of options to do anyone's head in

We're biased, natch, but I'd say you can't afford not to have one

Welcome to the world of tilties, Ryan - you'll never look back
