It's getting shipped from Bobcat of Lafayette tomorrow and I'll pick it up Monday or Tuesday...

PS - I read up a LOT about the mini skids, and, from what I read, don't think the Bobcat is not quite as good of a machine as the DW and Vermeer. HOWEVER, Bobcat is about 8 minutes from my shop, I'm friends with a couple of the employees, and we've run the MT-52 about 20 different times with no problems (ie no lack of power, no hang-ups, etc), so I decided to quit d*cking around and pull the trigger

I'll take some pics of it next week

sweet! congrats

i found out tht the attachments i have access to from the CAt skid will work on the T190. so now im pretty set on buying the T190. should have pics up by monday
