The Rottne salesman is taking me to a demo of one of their new processors next week so I can see how they do, he used to sell a lot of 501's with fixed heads and now he says the dangle head is the way to go

That would be Jared.  Nice enough guy for a salesman. He worked for cat. Google his name and you will know why he dose not work for them. You may have read about it in the bangor paper.

Ya I've known him from his days at Cat, he helped me with my four-roller when I first got it, he was a big help. He's helping me now with learning about the whole dangle head approach. Nortrax has a 501 with a Prentice(Cat) dangle head that I looked at and he's the guy I call when I have questions about Cat rigs. He can tell you who bought it new, who else has owned it since and how good their maintenance program was and if there were any major issues with it. Don't you have a Rottne? I need to get down and see yours work
