The thought did cross my mind but don't think you could stand all the benjis that would have to be thrown in...

I do like that size machine and think it could be very useful for the 'small' skid.

Ive thought about someday when I have more work to justify it, trading my tak 120 for a 150 and a dingo but I think Id miss it. The size seems to be perfect for many situations.

I use a 140 and dingos. I had a 150, but that thing is just too big and too heavy. We hauled the tl150 on a chevy 5500 and as my crew followed me to the job, I remember looking in the rear view mirror and hoping the damn truck wouldn't flip over making tight turns.

Here's one for you guys down south for a reasonable price if it works. The guy who listed it lives not too far away from me and I've bought from him a couple years ago, but use caution with him. Noticed in his description he says unit has zero wear, while the teeth show obvious wear.

We mow a lot of wooded areas. we have cats with tracks and fecon mower heads. They do a great job. On larger clearing jobs we use the mower first then follow up with chain saws and a grapple bucket. We chip sometimes and we use burn piles.Name:  BUSH0004.jpg

We are very happy with them. We three 287 and two 297 all with high flow hyd. I lost one 287 when one of my guys stalled it dumping a load of brush in a burn pile and could not start it and baled out. I tried pushing it away from the fire with another machine with a fecon head but no luck. Name:  BUSH0154.jpg

Do you have any issues with overheating in those CATS?

That's a crispy CAT if I ever saw one. Really a shame.

I have had them over heat a few times. But the temps were high and and you need to blow out the radiator more often depending on what you are mowing. The machine that burned was only 2 years old.
