    Nice purchase. You could do it but I wouldn't do it in HIGH I would make sure you were in LOW. But like anything use your head.

    I use a Bobcat 610. It was cheap and does what I need it to do.

    you can get bobcats with case controls. I think their good machines, but a PITA to work on. Too much junk stuffed into too little space.

    CASE aren't that cheap, so that acronym makes no sense.

    Most guys like the controls they learned on. Case style are my least favorite because of the unnatural wrist action, but the newer ones are easier than the older ones.
