i dont see why anyone would buy one of these terex skidloaders.
Yes.

I wouldn't buy one, but the same people that bought Thomas, the old Volvos (scat trak), skat track, patriots, and the old JCBs would buy these.

I have operated them and the 60hp radial machine is not too bad (a little butt heavy with a counterweight), but the 50 and 60hp vertical versions cycle times were painfully slow. I thought the 80hp large machine was poorly designed. Anybody that has ever gotten into and out of a machine was not involved in the design of the large machines. I think Takeuchi will find it just as hard to sell thes Terex skids as Terex has.
