Flat ground is fine with the singles but if you are in stumps , hills or rocks the go with the triple flange idlers. We also added the spacer to run the tracks even tighter and now we can run side hill without the tracks wanting to pop off

I do notice at idle, I can't feather the loader, there is no in between, either the valve opens, or it stays closed, and it will shutter.
Ron... the later versions of the C2 had some software updates and were a lot better, but still not where they should have been compared to true pilot controls.

The new D series have an altogether new software and I could not get them to chatter when I ran one...and I tried. Time will tell.

The triple flange also gives a smoother ride.

One other thing about the bobcat. The glass is on the outside of the protection screen. Can't imagine how many more windows we would go thru with that set up

That's what engineers call "forward thinking". Expect more of it in the future.

My buddy selling Bobcat says you can't defrost the side windows with the mesh on the inside and you can't wipe the condensation off either. This is a problem during the snow removal season. they have broken some windows, but it is not too bad as long as you are not working with brush.
