He'll feel that in the morning! A lady hit me head on while we were doing about 50mph and that airbag put a beating on me. Stuff like that makes you want to put a full cage in your street vehicle. Good to hear he is alright.

The ATS system is appealing and I saw it for the first time at the MANTS show in Baltimore last week.
ATS system? Please enlighten me on that..

And your brother, what dozer? Are you talking about the trackloader? (953?) I am glad he's okay..

apparently ATS is the wrong name and I can't find the handout........same thing that Jarod was looking at. Track system for wheeled skid loaders but its true tracks........not a steel band.

A full cage would cause you to slam into the other vehicle with greater force, because you would be strengthening the crumple zone that is designed to absorb the force of impact.

Yes its full coverage but we'll see what they cover and then go strip the car of the goodies.

The T190 is great. I can fit in a lot of places bigger machines can't. Tracks are 100% the way to go. Change the oil, grease everything and you should be fine. I bought mine used with 460hrs on it. I have a lot of attachments which is nice and just overall happy with it.

We are definetly goin with tracks, unless we find an awesome deal somewhere, but I just wanted to know because I know some people who have had good luck with them and some people who havent..
