That wierd looking stuff was a failed attempt to fix some scratches with my nifty little butane torch, I read somewhere if you want to glaze Lexan, take a torch and warm it up, I guess I got carried away.

And as far as backing up, I was in a fenced off area, the camera was in my right hand and I was turning my head to see where I was going, so no worries. One of my brother's employees and I were the only people there, we locked the park gate when we came in so no one would block us in the parking lot.

Somewhere between 140 and 160 hours, I haven't checked since the meter hit 100, I guess time flies when you aren't always looking at the hour meter like the Bobcat's have. Hell, I ain't even bothering to lift my head to look at the instrument panel like I was constantly doing with all the previous Bobcats, I have so much more peace of mind now with the Cat.

Here's a job that "swept" me off my feet, and oh yeah, YellowDog, this cab was 100% dust free after 2 hours of this, even going into my own dust cloud with the A/C on high didn't even seem to make a particle fly around.

Damn hills, it was such a nice hot day, I wanted to see how high I could get the EGT's up on my truck.

More videos:

Watching the Hitachi ZX27 level sand, if this was a Bobcat, the operator would be sea sick!

Hey Ron, just a quick question: why am I seeing so many more bobcats with the tank tracks? What makes them better? I mean I think they're absolutely sick, but is there any reason?
