    Took 11 weeks, but it finally was delivered to me yesterday. All I can say is WOW! It pretty much has every option except ride control. These pictures might be boring for those of you with skidsteers, but I thought the guys that don't see them every day might like them. Doesn't have my logos on yet.

    Thats a sweet looking machine! Which S series model does that replace? What type of blade, or other snow attachment will you use?

    Why so long? Did you have to special order it? Dealer didn't have any on the lot?

    It was special order with the options I got. They said it took longer because it was high flow. I don't know why, that's what I was told. Dealer told me they are telling people 90 days for getting these. I'm sure there are some sitting on dealer lots somewhere but not many.

    Good news is that Bobcat has rehired everyone that got laid off and wanted to return. They are even doing new hires in Gwinner, ND. Only question is how long will it last

    Thanks. I have to remember it has more junk in the trunk when turning in tight areas!

    The cab on those are very nice and roomy if you get the hand controls your joysticks float with your armrests like most big iron. The only thing I dislike about them and Im not knocking your machine at all, is that they need to make a bigger models more comparable to an s300 or larger when I have tried them I tend to end up on the nose. But we put our equipment to the test. Very nice pics you will like it.

    I agree with you. I'm going to get a weight kit for it, but as you say, you really shouldn't have to. The weight kit should get me close to the 3,000# mark, as far as lifting capacity. For me that's good enough.

    I really like the interior I was inside one at a show. No more cold feet.

    The only thing I would like them to do is put some sort of cover over the aux hydros.
    I find then get dirty and also I had something rub mine and it broke the edge.
