Do they show the specs for A220 or whatever the smaller one is. It would not surprise me if they discontinued it. I cant be a big seller, not that it isn't a cool idea but the market is pretty limited.

I thought they only made the one size of AWS?

It wouldn't surprise me if they discontinued it. Great idea, but I don't care what anyone says, that machine HAS to be a maintenance pig. And it's heavy and I'd be afraid to take it out of AWS mode, the thought of skidding around while those CV's are locked up gives me the willies, such a weak point that could snap so easy.

They had the a220 going way back to the deutz engine then went with just the a300.

I know of one contractor that has the older 220, he's just nuts about it, he takes it eveywhere his JCB Zoom Boom can't go.

mrsops -- just a suggestion -- when you type, you may want to turn off Caps Lock. That'll get rid of every single word being capitalized. :)

And I don't trust the Bobcat website right now... I hope they're still working on it.

1. It Looks Like He Is Typing His Posts On His Cel Phone

2. The new Bobcat website is shite, IMO.

Sorry for jumping the gun there -- just makes things a little difficult to read for me. (other people are probably less... an*%.) :)

And the way this forum renders full-caps posts is to Take The First Letter Of Each Word RATHER THAN LEAVE IT LIKE THIS.

(Try it out sometime.. ;) )

funny, didn't notice the caps.
Bobcat's website sucks. I think they are trying to appeal to noobs with fancy sales pitches instead of stating the facts and letting people who work for a living make an informed decision. Shame on Bobcat for playing with numbers and sales speak.

what you don't have an iphone yet? How do you survive? :)

I can type way over 100 wpm but it takes 10 minutes to compose a note on a cell phone!
