    Well after about a month of negotiations I finally took delivery of our new Case 420 series 3. Loaded with all the bells and whistles. I can't wait to put this thing to work...

    I hope the are better than the case we had years ago. Passed up everything but the diesel tank, we even restricted the throttle. Our boats get the throttle turned up slightly and they use a lot less fuel than the case did.

    Please, no ranting about how we're hurting the machine. We have a S-160 turbo with 6200 untouched hours other than oil changes and weekly air filter cleaning and a S-185 turbo with 4700 hours to date. Best loaders we ever bought, I'm looking at leasing a S-770 with a 12' age plow for next season.

    Yea I know, I wish I had 3/4 ton but we got rid of trucks in our fleet years ago. So this is what I have to work with, and I am only going to be towing it once in a while locally.

    Thanks for all the comments guys... and no the rims are not factory aftermarket FAST rims
