Just got back from another really good trip in Sweden again...so just going to put up some pics over the next couple of days of some of the stuff that caught my eye......saw a lot of these tilting hitch’s on the small stuff, there were either from Steelwrist or RF- Systems, they are plug and play, a really compact unit with a small build height and able to be used on all your buckets, they’d even put a bracket on the boom for the Q/H bar. Was really nice to use for the bit I did with it.

do it as well as you can,but learn to do it better
always liked the simplicity of their design Ollie (y) .... like axle locks on a duck pendle axle :cool:..... seems to be slightly different to the first ones I saw, but could just be the memory playing tricks:( ...... nope my memory :rolleyes: ..... just looked at these pix from 2015, when I first saw one ;) and looks to be the same, all be it the original makers Tilt Man ... Danish, IIRC:unsure: http://tiltman.dk/

I nearly went for a titlting hitch before the deal on the small Engcon tilt and rotate unit came up. I like the handle tidy. I have a magnet on the under seat box in the cab for keeping the bar safe. As I am normally on my own I don’t need to keep it outside for the oppo to use!

This little grader was really nice, and at 2.7 ton, towable, the company who sold them also had a contracting business as well, and had them in there fleet, this one was going straight from the show to work doing footpaths and and cycle tracks. After having a little play on the levers, it was extremely intuitive, and quite easy to pick up the hang of it. They are making a 6 wheel drive version at the moment with a cab on. The bits on the front of the blade are for a ripper option, which fold back when not in use.

The trip started with a catch up with the local Hitachi dealer we met last year. This little U10 had just arrived in and was in the process of getting PDI’d
All the pipe it custom made out of pipe work rather than going down the route of using hoses.
The two ducks were going to a recycling centre. That was there 3rd and 4th.
Virtually all the pipe work on machines (unless
4 pipes),comes down one side, you can see in the second to last picture where they tap into the line to bring it across and down. This one has the manual system where you can connect all the pipes in one go.

This was a really nice SMP unit, the tool box was a nice extra as well. This machine was very nice, but sadly, cos it was a very special one, these pics are all that I could take, you’ll notice the pipe work all going down the drivers side.

This was a little R1 if I’m correct, just having a pin and bush overhaul, not sure how many hours it had done, but judging but the state of the machine, it had certainly been worked

You might notice the American car in the back ground, the Swedes are mad for there American cars, and you can’t go a couple of miles with out seeing a handful of them around.
The yard had a lot more in this time round, with some of the machines in there work clothes and some just waiting to go through the workshop. There were plenty of new buckets which had just been dropped off, and a couple of new trailers as well.
The Volvo was in need of two new hubs , and was “waiting to get its cards”.
The yellow merlo was in for a service, asking why it was yellow, it turns out it there military colours.

Some nice work in that workshop(y) would love a day in there:)
The Rototilt is an RT10, and Id say a 2016 model judging by the 30 year anniversary sticker.
Would you say it was a rental machine out of interest?

Don't complain - suggest what's better
Thanks for the pictures. Those tilt hitches look a really simple option compared to the Helac power tilt I used to have. A lot less built height and I would guess a fair bit cheaper.
Like the little grader. Being able to tow it must make it really versatile for people like myself without a lorry. What sort of money are they talking?

It was a really nice workshop, everything just seemed right and they even covered the blades on the ducks as to not scratch them.
It was quite possibly a rental machine, as a lot of the 13 ton stuff and below usual is, saw this on a morning walk around. Think it belonged to a small contractor who is building the industrial estate round the corner to where we stayed, as last year they had just done the site clearance and were on with putting the roads in.

Your looking at about £135k for it, but it goes out for £85ph+........it is a lot, but when you think that you can only get the same £ph for these big ones, it puts it into perspective.

That tilt hitch is incredibly neat, but I have to say, it just wouldn't be enough tilt angle for me having gotten used to a Powertilt.

Yeh it’s a good show, but sadly I don’t think they’ll be much left of it in 2 years time, when we first went across 7/8 years ago, it had come from the city centre and moved to where it was on the golf course, the problem was that it was just to big, with the gates opening at 8/9 and it was 11 before anyone got to the Cat stand on the other side, However it was fantastic, a real working plant show, jump on anything you like and play to your hearts content. As the years have gone on it has got smaller and smaller with a lot of the bigger players hanging back until last year when they moved to the race track at Svenska. Approaching the race track from the road, it didn’t look that big, but the quality of kit that was on display was second to none, and according to people at this show, there are another 40 big company’s who want apart of it. There’s not really any dog plots at the race track, but i think the format of these types of shows is changing. The only real dig plot st this show was on the Hidromek stand, but, it was still a good show, and met some very good people.
