    From the shape and the stabilizers poking out under the blanket... looks like a new telehandler.

    You guys are killing me with the Con Expo propaganda. I had to abandon my plans to go this year and I'm bummed.

    I can't imagine Deere making that big of deal about a TH.

    This is similiar to when they came out with the HSD.

    I don't think it is a TH, I don't see any wheels and the shape does not appear to resemble your typical TH. Does it?

    Right... no wheels...that's why it is a big deal.

    It's their new HTH... hover-telehandler.:laughing:

    My JD salesman thinks it might be the new K series backhoes.

    Didn't open the link before.Obviously can't be a hoe unless they removed it from the tractor to fool everyone.Something said about possibly the most important new idea that came off the drawing board.

    IMO it's a backhoe stabilizer sticking out from under the "tarp". I think the size and shape of the "tarp" has nothing to do with the whatever machine is underneath it.

    I'm thinking it a new tractor backhoe. Just because of the size of the rigger. We may not be able to see the wheels because they are being held up by the riggers and bucket.

    That doesn't make sense to me. They already have them (excavators) and they don't have out riggers.

    It's a completely new 360* rotating backhoe on rubber.Any bettors out there?

    I would take that bet over a trackhoe with outriggers.
