I agree,The feature's are pretty neat on the machine.I think the foot throttle is "Drive by wire" now,So much better than previous years.Plus the ability too have it be a decelerator is unbelievable!The other thing that I loved was the ability to change the speed settings for the loader arms and bucket and then beable to do it for the travel too.

Great Pictures EB. I see you are from Ontario as well! Where abouts? What type of work do you do?

I also thought the throttle feather feature was also cool. It smooths out the throttle if your foot starts bouncing on it if the machine is bouncing. I hated the bucking bronco feeling on the foot throttle if the terrain was bumpy. This eliminates it.
