    Yeah and I am totally surprised that there is nothing for the 1.5 ton range as there are millions of that sized diggers so the market is there for them!!

    Hey Jim would a regular tilting ditching bucket suffice?

    Or would a tilt-rotator be in your budget?

    At least with Eng-Con they have a model made for a machine like yours.

    And I found this too hope it helps.

    It would add weight Jim but from what the guys have been talking on the British Construction Equipment Forum you'll never look back. I used one on a five tonner as you may recall about two years ago made by Indexator and I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. Though from what my boss told me it added $20,000 grand to the price of the machine when they bought it.

    Well its definately a contractors tool .... I wouldnt like to see one on self drive Its probably only suitable for 1 tonners that have variable tracks due to the weight and counterbalance problems... does yours have that track adjust Jim ?
