I thought that compared to other machines of the same size that the big CAT tracked machines were also lacking. I think that the machine has enough power. It is middle of the road in hp spec. which should be enough. It seemed to me that it struggled when forced to dig from a dead stop. Again it seemed to be more of a hyd. issue than a power issue. But the machines certainly are not over powered. The TK has a lot of hp but it does not feel any more powerful than any of the others. You would never know it has that kind of hp. Kinda interesting how the different companies are successful in varying degrees in putting power to the ground. I have never run a 257 but it sounds like it could use more gitty up as almost everyone on this forum who has one, has cited that as an issue.
