    Here is my list, not much now but growing...

    Case 590 4X4 loader/ext-a-hoe
    Ford 545 loader tractor with tiller and box scraper
    Case W-14 loader
    Bobcat S250
    Cat D4 dozer
    and the most resent additions
    Bobcat 763 (G-series)
    91 GMC 8500 tandem axle with 12 yd dump.

    I am looking at maybe getting a Cat 416C 4X4 loader/backhoe also. But I maybe trading the Case 590 in on it. Does anyone have a 416 or had any experiences with one.

    Team Yamaha if your gonna trade your 590 in go for the 420-430D's they are a nice machine with air ride seats excavatore control arms and full view rear window.

    I think that the 310's are like the cat 416 I don't think any of them are like the 710G's

    Team Yamaha, you didn't say if you are looking at new or used. Be careful with the early Cats, when first introduced Cat was buying components from other manufacturers and assembling a tractor from them. I believe the whole machine is now manufactured by Cat and is much more reliable.

    I had a JD 410 that I thought was the cat's behind, but I'm pretty impressed with the specs and layout of the Cats. I haven't run one, only checked them out in the dealer's yard.

    I like the new cat backhoes they have come along way from the first machines.I tried out one of those 420D's with the excavator controls it was great plus plenty of glass through out.And a must if your gonna order a machine is the air ride seat,what a differance it makes driving it.:)

    Yeah I know, I agree with ya. We have been talking about a picture forum but nothing has been done yet because it has been a year and half since it was brought up.

    Yep, a picture forum would be awesome. I love looking at nice pictures of trucks and snowplows. Its funny as you get older, your tastes change. I used to be so into sports cars and never really cared for a pick up truck. Little by little, as I got older, I started getting this love for pick up trucks and snowplows. Now that I own a pick up truck, my car just sits in the garage and collects dust! Dont get me wrong, I still love sports cars, but when I have to go out somewhere, 9 times out of 10, I take the keys to the truck and not the car. :) I think I started to change feeling when winter hit a couple years ago. It snows and you are stuck in the house cause you have a sports car that cant go. So I would sit by the window and watch for the plow truck to come up the street, that was my big excitement since I was stuck home, not cause I was waiting to go out with the car, just liked to watch him go by. Thats when I started to realize I wanted a truck and plow to be out there too having a little fun instead of being stuck in the house wishing I could be out there too. Oops, sorry to get so far off topic. Now about that picture forum, when we gettin it Chuck? :D Mike :drinkup:
