    On this, one hand controls the bucket movement and the other is directional. I am used to both hand controls being directional so it took a little to get the hang of it.

    More like GEHL controls. LOL

    Gehl had controls like this before CaT even dreamt of building skidloaders.

    Cat SS controls are joystick......you can get joystick in just about any machine. I am guessing he has the standard Gehl "T" handles in that machine?

    We had a record Dec. last year & I accumulated 95-100 hrs. just that month. Obviously, we're in different regions, but those kind of months can be rough with an agreement like your's. Normal months you can probaly come out ahead though, merely the law of averages.

    I've got a 7810 I use for loading trucks, in the winter time those controls get a little tight...if you ever have the cab tilted...spray a little penetrating oil onto the knuckles underneath the rubber boots where the pushrods go into the hydraulic supply manifold, your wrists will love ya,:waving:

    Oh, and BTW, if those controls are like the Gehl controls I'm thinking of, you won't want to be arm wrestling the operator of that machine at the end of the season! wesport
