It allows a bucket or other attachment to be rotated and tilted at the same time, making it simple to operate around or under obstacles, and for any type of excavation work. Rototilt is available in six models covering excavators and backhoes from 1.5 to 30 tonne capacity. e flexibility of the Rototilt allows an excavator to operate in extremely tight work areas and perform functions that would normally require specialized equip- ment, multiple machines, or additional manpower. www.rototilt.ca Contact 519-754-2195 • DIG • LOWE XR-SERIES TRENCHING ATTACHMENTS L OWE XR-Series trenching attachments are primarily used on skid steer loaders and compact track loaders, but they can also be used on a wide range of mini-loaders.
