That does suck!! Sorry too hear about your hay, Jmac.:bouncegri

Your a cruel man Jeff....but I wish I had of thought of that line:rolleyes: . Isn't it funny how humans have so much interest in anothers misfortune. I guess it helps if you can look back and laugh. I try not to think about your situation Jmac because although we have insurance an all, our business rotates around out 9 tonne Mitsubishi. If it is off the road we can't shift our machines and thats like minimum 2K a day lost.

Welcome Sunray....you name is an otherwise bright spot amongst Jeff's twisted posts.:bouncegri

Steve, you have an auger on your wish list. We have one heck of a good planetary drive auger you can see at our website www.bluediamondattachments.com.
As for the post by mpalums trying to decide between Cat and Bobcat, I guess it's just your preferance as they are both good reliable machines, but I will speak from the standpoint of a mechanic that works on these machines; I've said for a long time, the only thing that's more of a pain to work on than a Bobcat is a Ditch Witch! But that's not to say Bobcat is not a great machine. One thing you failed to mention, are you looking for a wheel or track machine. I assume your looking for track since you mention Cat. One thing I can say about the Cat/ASV undercarriage, there ain't a smooter ride out there. But the tracks are a little spendy, so take care of them. If your looking at a Bobcat track machine, I seem to see too many T190's with failing drive motors, and I mean they destroy themselves inside beyond repair, and the motor isn't available aftermarket, only through Bobcat. My local dealer keeps one "in stock". Hmmm, what does that tell you.

Sickle bar mower

I use a 7' Sickle bar mower on a Bobcat 863 that can be raised to a vertical position and elevated to 17ft. I purchased it at skidsteersolutions and have been very happy with their service after the sale.
