    Just curious if anyone else has run across these Cheng Gong loaders. Apparently there made in China and shipped over in parts and assembled here. Theres a landscaping company around here that has a few and I got the unfortunate chance of running one last winter. Anyways jsut curious if they are just getting used locally or if you guys have seen them around.

    haha there cheng gong but it got refered to cheech and chong because it never worked right.. I was just going through some pics from last winter and came across that one when I stopped at home on the way by for a quick snack. I just checked out their website and I guess the make rollers, graders, loaders and some other stuff. The modeled after a cat, but nothing like a cat

    Some of them even have cat engines. I think that one had cummins or something, but i was doing parking lots with another one that had a cat power plant in it. The only good thing about this one is the radio worked, the heat came and went.. long 36 hours in that.

    I had the chance to run one...I didn't care for it. The only thing I could see I liked was the automatic greasing deal. I'm sure it was just and option on it, but I liked the idea. Another company was trying it out and had it in our pit. Needless to say that company didn't buy it. We called it a 'Long Dong'.

    Ya there useless. We put some lincoln auto greasers on some trucks and loaders and there great.. no reason to buy one of those pieces of junk. I still haven't come across anyone buying these and liking them except for the landscape company around here. I think theres a reason for it. I found it had no power and was slow traveling

    The chinese do not originate, they duplicate. And duplicate cheaply.
