    Guys, I am looking to purchase a rotisserie and since I have never owned or used one, trying to figure out which one with what options do I want. I hate to buy something and then find out for a dollar more I could have gotten more of what I want. So, can you owners and users chime in on what does and does not work for you. Am looking at Titian, Redline, Auto Twirlers, Whirly Jig. I do know I want the wheel option that allows for yard or terrane rolling. Also can see this being used by family for a non Mopar car in its future.

    One gent on here said he spotted for the air hookup option but for his needs , that was overkill. Guess that is what I am looking for, whats is a must have and what not needed.......thank all...

    I’ve got an Auto Twirler that suits me just fine. Once the body is centered you can turn it with one finger. You’ll have to fab your own brackets, but I guess you’ll have to with the other ones. Screw jacks to center the body to the pivot, hydraulic jacks to raise and lower. I bought it unpainted and rattle canned some primer on it, it’s going to get all kinds of abrasive dust and overspray on it. Sorry I don’t have any pictures.

    I have built two of mine own over the years. First one sold off with the project. Second one is loaned out currently. The good thing is no piece is over 5' long, it all stores conveniently when not in use. Up on my 4th shelf stored in first picture. The other pics are from when I set it up and numbered all of the connections because I was tired of showing every how it assembles.

    I have a Whirly-Jig and it's a very well made piece.

      I paid $600 used for mine very heavy duty. A China one but post are 4” square with 8 ton jacks on each end. Strong enough for the Savoy, Duster and soon the Belvedere. Only thing I’d like to change are the tires (8”) over to say a 16” tire wheel so I could bring out off the concrete to the gravel driveway to wash down or sandblast, some kits have that. Just make sure it will support 5000 pounds safely.

        I like this one. probably because it is the one I purchased and use. I can't compare it to anything else since this is the only one I have used. It does what I want/need it to do and didn't break the bank. It is the Redline Stands ROT 3000 LD as seen in my restoration thread "73 Roadrunner 340 Auto" starting at post #84 or you could upgrade to the RTS 3000

        Thanks guys, Builderguy I do like the anti turn over brackets with the Redline units. I m old now and doing things with safety in mind ranks much higher than once did. Seems most are satisfied with their choices and thats good. I hate to get something I want and find out later, that ain t what I want.......
