Less pivot points.

Mechanically, that makes sense. What about the Case 90XT/450, though? It's a brute of a SSL and yet has more points than a vertical-lift machine.

The 450 does more grease points. However, the majority of those are due to the mounting the tilt cylinders and not due to structural design. This differs from a vertical lift machine that has additional grease points at the linkage in the rear tower (if so equipped). It is still a radial lift machine with essential one grease point in the upper tower. The remainder grease the tilt cylinder mechanism, and are very low wear compared to the main structural grease points. One day I would like to own a 450. I just wish they had a higher lift capacity, at least around 2800 ROC. They are considerably less expensive than a 465 with all the capability except the lift and reach.
