Minimax......haven't seen it yet. What I am waiting for is a remote controled track hoe that I can satelite monitor on my laptop from a chair on a remote beach somewhere...... :)

you mention the R/C machine and thought I'd mention that Case I believe has an idea about an R/C excavator have to see how that plays out.

Never seen a 6 way blade yet I hear Kubota has them on the new 121 and 161 i'm not too sure.

Cat's 304CCR and 305CCR have the angle blade option as well.

Kubota and Cat have 4 way blades on them, not 6 way.

The only excavator that I have personally witnessed with a 6 way blade is the Kobelco Blade Runner. My guess is the Komatsu's are also 4-way.

Komatsu shows a option for a PAT blade. Here's a link that shows a the blades options are on page 10.The tilt part is was I really want.http://www.equipmentcentral.com/north_america/data/new_equipment/ACF5CB3.pdf

Hmmm, PAT 6 way is available for all models except PC27-MR2. Wow. I wish we had more Komatsu dealers around here.
