Wrist for a mini Excavator

I tried google and came up with squat. Looking for something for a 17 or 27 ZTS (deere) sized machine.

Anyone know of anyone?

Try CWS they would beable to make you one yes it would be pricey but it would be well made. Next inline would be Weldco Beales and if your really desparate Ron's buddies at Accurate could also build you one.

The keyword is tiltrotator, without it you won't find much.
Industry Standard
http://www.engcon.se/products/tiltro...ec02&langID=en
Can't remember anything about these guys but the name.
http://www.steelwrist.com/products/x04-tiltrotator/
The Scandinavians love these things. No hoses.

And i think these are the new guys that build them with worm drive actuators.

I don't know much about rototilt either, but i'm pretty sure the were one of the pioneers

The man to talk to about tiltrotators would definatley be Eddiebackblade on HEF. Your a member over there too, right? He has the sweetest kuboata 8 tonner in the world, bar none. Your going to want to get joysticks with proptional rollers and few extra buttons on them. His engcon has a grab built in. He can pick up stuff up in any orentation just by turning the bucket around backwards and hitting a couple buttons. Theres atleast 5 threads full of info on the subject, which is the only reason i know anything about them.

Wikipedia article for learnings. First link that came up on google, last thing i looked at. Reads like it was written by a rototilt guy.

Accurate plus or minus 6 inches.

Cat Rental stores always have used tilting buckets they like to get rid of.

HELAC still makes the best.

What is your deal DM? I read one post your thinking about getting out of the industry, another your making an offer on a 75, demoing a jcb, buying a grader, working at a gravel pit. And now your looking for a wrist for a lil deere.
explain yourself.
Also if 27 and 35 deeres share the same Q/C.

I have a helac powertilt on mine and it is a very well built unit. it does add some weight that you have to take into consideration. on a larger machine it is definitly worth it though.
