    Well I had called the bobcat dealer a few weeks ago looking for used bobcat attachments. Well I told them I want a rockhound, forks, 709 backhoe, tilt a tac, etc. Well the guy say "I got a tilt a tac coming in on trade. I gave the guy $1000 for it, give me $1100. " HELL YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. They are like $2500 new. This one has a slight bend in the top of the bucket mount. Buts other wise its perfit. Well they delivered it today. Oh man I can't wait to play with it. But its raining and I have no tracks for my machine yet. GRRRRR. Anyways pics to come shortly. :yup

    If you ever have used one before, you will never run a machine with out one again. Its like having another third hand while grading.

    Nice! I've heard that the tilt-tatch is a great tool.

    I bet that would be useful addition to a skid steer.

    I saw another one made by a company called Yukon Jackbucket,which they called their Roto-Jack.It could rotate completely 360 degrees.

    That one was spendy new also.About $4500.

    Sounds like you got a real good deal.

    I wonder how a skid steer dozer blade attachment would work with it??

    I'm trying to think of why you would need to rotate your bucket 360 degrees, although i see how it could be usefull with some pallet forks on.

    In their ad it says:
    "RotoJack rotates 360 degrees in any direction for pouring fluids,tearing out walls,angle digging,box raking in an upsidedown position,and more."

    I'd thought it would be nice if you'de a grapple attached,while moving brush around.I'm not sure about the "box raking in an upsidedown position" thing they'de mentioned in their add though.

    For $4499.99 I think I could do without the ability to completely invert the tach,and would go with one like Itsgottobegreen got for less money.

    I didn't even know they made them and we use skidsteers a lot for support.
