I just hope they step up and correct this situation because I am not looking for anything other than that. I am a small business ad buying a piece of equipment like that is expensive and if it continues this way can have huge effects on my business. I know how I stand behind my work, I had a question on a finished patio job we did today, and I was standing with the homeowner in his house on a Sunday. I know what I need to do to make my customers happy, and I assume they will also.

you're doing the right thing, but now you got us wondering what brand?

Being a landscaper, I would say ASV/CAT MTL or Ditch Witch multifunction backhoe track loader. Those DW machines sound like they have a lot of hyd hose issues.

I don't understand the reluctance to give up a brand name. It's not throwing them under the bus.. it's facts. Maybe someone with similar experience can point to a fix to solve the problems.

Back when my Toolcat was a fairly new piece of machinery my dealer's service department didn't have a lot of experience troubleshooting a particular problem. It took me posting on another forum to get some ideas of where I could look. This was after I spent about $600 at the dealer fixing a component that turned out not to be the problem. Since I kind of led the dealer down that road with what "I thought", I didn't ask them for a refund. Had I been more diligent in searching out the problem, I would have saved myself $600 and about two years of living with a problem. Even Bobcat Technical support was a mile off on their diagnosis of "what it could be" via email. After a few posts online, I got ideas of where to look and found a simple answer to why my machine was leaning. The part was about $10 of my time...

I'm leaning towards the Ditch Witch compact tracked loader backhoe unit, neat little unit, but there's a lot of complex electronics and hydraulics squeezed in them.

So do you really think he would have bought one and not posted pictures of it? He has pics of his shiny new JCB and stated he loves it!
