You've made a decision and that can only be a good thing. Really pleased you've gone the S coupler route, although that's possibly the only option available to you. A mine field of options to do anyone's head in
The s coupler isn't common here. everything is oem pin grabber but I wanted the option to move the rototilt to a bigger machine(228, 320elrr) plus the build height is shorter. Ill have to put a new top plate on my compaction wheel and put new brackets on some buckets.

Hello all. So after waiting for a couple months I have finally had my new rototilt installed. Ive only had a few hours to run it but it works even better than expected. Im still waiting for my 24" bucket and compaction wheel to have the s70 ears installed but other than that everything is here. I have only played around with the grapple but will be setting rocks for retaining walls Monday and Im sure it will work great! After using it for a day Im kicking myself for not getting one sooner, as long as it stays together it won't take long to pay for itself. Anyway I will post more pics as the year goes on.
Thanks
Ryan

I think most people, once they have got their head round the initial cost, kick themselves for not buying one earlier, I certainly did.
Keep the pictures coming - we like pictures.
