You caught me out there, Graham - I've only been with Engcon since the end of 2014 and hadn't heard of this

I've checked with one of our Swedish guys who's over here and this mythical beast did exist. I remember Stig telling me once that it had been tried but was never going to be as good as the real thing (I'm paraphrasing him here), but didn't realise that it had escaped captivity.

Reading between the lines I'm guessing that it was something that we had to try, if only to confirm that we shouldn't do it

Engcon used to (maybe still do) a just tilt with rams and just rotate units would have been some build height putting those 2 units together lol

Still do. Maybe I should put more effort into marketing them. Triple Hitch anyone?

Call it the Engcon Club sandwich

yeh, I've seen a few ..... be some 'club sandwich' .....
Marttiini also do similar with their B20 coupled tilt and rotater units ...
with the B20 the build height is an absolute minimum and a hell of a strong unit ..
It's one solid QH system, but no option to turn a bucket ....... without a rotater/tilty
