Better floatation, traction, pushing power, and more bragging rights!

Every single one of our operators and just about every body else that has operated a Bobcat mini, Gravel Rat even made a good thread about his experience, complains about them being jerky when you try stuff like I posted, this Hitachi and every Cat and Takeuchi I ever ran is s-m-o-o-t-h as silk!

Just the thought of Bobcat excavator pilot controls makes me cringe. The valving leaves a lot to be desired, IMO.

Yes Bobcat minis are horrible they are very hard to operate smoothly.

I've got some other vids of that mini, just listening to the machine, so, so much quieter than BobCat.

You end up with a bad back and other back problems running machines that toss you around too much. Skidder operators that work in forestry have neck problems and pinched nerves etc. When I was running backhoe I would get sore hips because your always twisting in the seat running over rough ground.
