Once you go track, you never go back.
Why no pilot controls?

i almost went with sjc on the 650 but last minute i went with the stone age controls lol. The way they have the sticks set up curved in now it feels alot better operating the machine then the way they had them a few years ago.

I feel your pain.....feels like you are having heart attack symptoms at the end of the day, sore chest, numb hands, neck pain and an overwhelming sense that something isn't right.

I am with you on the controls, I hate pilot controls! Hand and foot controls are the only reason I still have a Bobcat.

Can't believe you guys hand foot controls. Now I hate them and last new machine was pilot. But gotta get what works best or most comfortable for you. Do any snow yet with the new machines?
