    Picked up a new Cat two weeks ago to replace the stolen one. Have used it a bunch of times. Has everything one could ask for all I need to do is install my satellite radio in it and I'd never come out of the machine. Just fits on the Trailer.

    I used it tonight with my water tank to put out a big fire I made. :nono: Forgot to get a permit.

    The operator compartment on the "C" series is a HUGE improvement over the previous two series, isn't it? :nod:

    No point its too new, everyone is after used junk and pay dirt money. You are just best off to go to London and save a few $$ and get a new one. Too expensive out our way and some of the us builders cheat by usesing less steel under the deck smaller axles or 6ply tires.

    The "C" series is allot better then the "B" yes but I find the radio package should should be more integrated like the bobcats and not just install 2 aftermarket speakers behind the seat. The air seat and ride control is great. Kick it into 2 speed load the bucket up and you hardly spill anything or feel anything. I lifted a 265gal water tank 8' off the ground to the machine didn't tip at all.

    Yes I think so. I've heard someone complain about someones John deere skid and how the view looking up is no good. I also do not like the flip up door on the deere and what looks to be a big blind spot looking back. A cam system would work and Battlefield did try to sell one to me for $3600.

    Ride control is worth every penny IMO.
    Even on the bigger toys.

    Glad to see you got the stolen one replaced.
    Hope the battle with the insurance co. wasn't too bad.

    Air seat ride control amics and AC is the best.

    Insurance battle comes when my commercial policy's renew. State Farm wanted to drop me right away as I had just switched to them the month it was stolen.

    Thxs. Dont know how well that works. I put in a kill switch. If someone really wants it no matter what you do they will take it.
