Yes it does take some time to get the feel.
Also a little financial lesson for those new guys on here that think the only way to plow with a loader if they don't have one is to plop down $16k to rent a shiny new one. I purchased the 2 Dresser loaders for $22K total, spent another $1k in painting, decals and miscellaneous repairs. Used them for 3 full seasons then sold them for $35K. So my 3 year rental of these 2 machines cost me +$13K profit as opposed to spending $96k for renting 2 loaders for 3 seasons. Probably a wasted lesson because the noobs who could benefit from it aren't checking out this thread
Those are two very nice loaders, I would have a hard time kicking them down the road. I'm not a fan of the front cab either. I can close one eye to it for a nice loader tho. Somebody knows how to paint and decal.
Some guys like to relax and play golf as hobby, I prefer to make old equipment look new again as my hobby. Here is my Lull I did a few years ago
They call those front cab models tail waggers.
There is nothing wrong with that! We do the same on a smaller scale, shelter is everything, we try our best to keep everything clean and waxed, and I like doing it, usually no one is bothering me.....nice work
