    It's an acronim....like saying that FORD is an abreviation for (take your pick):



    BTW I am A CAT owner and fan. I currently own (2) CATs. My TLB (a 416 C) has been owned by me since it was new, and currently displays over 12,000 hours on the meter.
    I have spent a lot of hours on Case backhoes (before I was self employed), and IMO you will like them once you get used to them. Over all Case makes good backhoes. I still prefer the Cat machines, for many reasons, though.

    Really though, I have operated Case backhoes in the past and liked every aspect of them except for the backhoe portion of the tractor. Volvo is another one on that list. The backhoe controls felt very jumpy to me.

    I have thousands of hours in a Deere backhoe, so naturally, I'm partial to them.

    I just set up my account with my local CAT dealer and look forward to putting their skids, backhoes and loaders to work this year.
