Is my tiltrotator from Rototilt® filled with oil or grease?

When we launched tiltrotator RT60 in 1997, we went over to oil-filled rotor housings. Follow this link for an explanation of the benefits of oil from our service manager.

The older models RT800, RT830 and RT1401 were grease-filled.

Which oil should I use?

How do I fit an extra implement onto my RT40, RT60 or RT80 grapple module?

At the very back of the grapple cylinders, there are manual taps and outlets for extra function.

On elder models, the swivel block is replaced and fitted with a reversing valve (art no 4300 080). It is available in electrical or manual versions and enables the coupling of implements to outlets 3 or 4 of the swivel.
