    The price was right. I had a thread last year of pics and details of what I had to do to get it ready. I picked it up last november to help me out with a new contract. Well I got to put 5 hours on it pushing slush....... So not sure yet for snow work. I did enjoy having it around the shop this year for loading out #57 lime stone, sand, and 304. Oh ya I ran it down the road and pushed some trees off the road after a big storm that went through in june. It worked good. Hope it snows enough to do some pushing this year.

    Dmax 2wd. I love it. It would be nice to have 4x4 but this one was a good deal. It came with a new deuce dump bed, its the bed that dumps regular and side dumps.

    I will take pics for you tomorrow of it in action. Its cool but I dont ever get a chance to use the side dump option. I am probably going to take the bed and hoist off next spring and and put a 4-5yd 11 foot with 2 fold down sides instead of one fold down side. Im not in landscaping so im not using it like one of you guys who are would. I used it a couple times to unload salt when I had the snow ex 2400. It worked good for that. Its a very cool setup and a cool idea but I would have better use of a regular bed.

    How do you like the W-14? I have an older 85xt skid that has made me a fan of the brand. I've seen these at good prices, but never know what I'm getting into.

    I am a fan of CASE as well, but those old W series are weird because the cab sits on the front half of the loader and they were known to be quite unstable. Just my 2 cents

    So far I like it. Nothing fancy but it runs nice and the heater works good. I dont like the 24 volt deal but that is not a big deal. Parts are cheap! LOL! You know what case stands for!

    Case makes some nice stuff i have owned 3 from them but the the old w platform you have to love to sit on the fron of the articulation it's ok going forward but reversing is a pain because the ass of the machine is a little harder to keep track of since your on the front half. other than that they are a pretty decent machine and probably not as costly as there newer counter parts. the other thing i like about them is there is a dealer next town over :) just in case you need something .
    but if i was looking i would probably be looking at a 621 B or c series or a 721 .
