    Congrats on your new purchase....but I'm going to be honest, that thing looks cheap. I bet you got a really good price on it though? 2speed? Hope it works well for you, and you have good dealer support.

    P.S. is that bucket warped? In the first pic it looks warped/bent?

    I wouldn't know this is the first year Terex/ASV came out with the wheeled machines. So today was my first day seeing it and driving it they are delivering it to my lot on Friday where I will have more time to play around but the real verdict won't be until the pennies start falling from the sky.

    Yea well I ordered it based on price and dealer support, I believe it was 30k and unfortunately does not have two speed. I thought the front exterior of the cab looked very basic/cheap myself but I also bought a bobcat S650 this year too with all the bells and whistles. That picture does make it appear that the bucket looks warped, after looking at it I think it has something to do with the shadow and angle of the picture but will absolutely double check before accepting delivery.

    Congrats on the new machine! I don't know if i would say it looks cheap but it certainly looks different than the rest of the pack for some reason, could just be the basic coloring. How's the visibility out the rear? It looks limited but i'm obv not sitting in the cab

    Thanks, visibility was good and has a rear view mirror so you don't have to break your neck

    Was this past year a good year or are the financing rates on new equipment too hard to pass up? 2 New skids, a new wheel loader, and a new truck so far?? Damm

    I guess I can say it was a decent year and financing options are some what intriguing especially when they say no money down and first payment is in three months. The main reason is for expected growth, hopefully.

    Looks good. I will be curious what you have to say about it when it has 1000+ hours on it.
