    yeah I'm pretty psyched it came. Yeah I'm glad I had them put the radio in, as someone said its a little odd but really no other place to put it. at least they gave me a remote for the radio so I dont have to reach around :D

    top of the line, the cab sure is nicer then my old D3B. If you were in Big Rapids you'd have a cheap operator

    yeah it has a very nice cab. The new C series are great. It is really such a nice machine with so much power. I dont know if I'll ever really be able to use it to its fullest lol. and the way this skid rides it is def more like a caddy than a working machine.
