Just repaired my Kinshofer rotator, but only 4 tonne, yours must be far more than that. The rotation uses one of those hydraulic motors with two lobed discs, one with one less lobe, so you get unrestricted rotation.

If it is any help I have the Kinshofer manual, it also cost me £140 for 7 O rings!

Fascinating,;) well above my pay grade but very very interesting. I've never had a decent opportunity to spend time alongside anyone with the knowledge in order to start to understand the niceties of the insides of hydraulic moving parts, be it pumps or motors :cool:

I'm not sure, but I would guess most manufactures buy the rotator bit off the shelf. You may want to try Andy Hair (0113 276 2300) of Northern Track to see if they have bits to fit. He has always been very helpful to me and their stuff is a good price. No idea what a new one would cost, but I'm sure he would quote you.

Grab has been scrapped,
Not worth the repair as £6k for a new motor
:eek::(:cry: go alright under a tilty, with the rotater off it ...... Rob Taylor did exactly that with his selector ;)

Crying shame if it literally has been binned. As Druid says, I took top off mine ( not a VTN ) and bolted a S60 headstock to it.
Looking at pictures I cannot imagine it too hard a job to have done the same and made a few quid on the job ;)
