:( I had the experience of driving a JCB 1110 track skid steer last week and rough ride doesn't beging to describe it. It weighs 10k lbs w/the tracks being 17'' wide. The salesman told me it would be fine for residential landscaping but when I saw this sasquatch I knew that was out the window. It didn't have the servo controls we've come to love soo much, instead it had the foot controls like a NH. It had plenty of power from an 90h/p perkins diesel. I guess once you've operated Cats all the rest seem passe' by design and ride. The Cat's new 257 track steer is miles ahead of this beast with comfort and ergonomics.
