The Take has landed

It only took two months to get a new one but the finally dropped it off yesterday. So far the only complaint is the door rattles a bit and they only sent a 76" bucket instead of the 80".
It's a pushing mf'r and after we get used to the smooth effortless controls I imagine the production will rise. For such a simple machine it sure does show how Bobcat is still in the stone age.

You have it, the hydraulic cylinder behind the bucket, makes you lazier.

There's an over ride switch on the top of the hydraulic quick couplers on the loader, the hoses from the attachment have to be disconnected before the hydraulic Q/A will work, but you can fiddle around with it.

Nice Purchase. These days, it would be nice to pick up another line to sell. Take would be one of them. Dealers here in Fl. come and go.

Tbi, Why is Bobcat stone aged compared to Take??

Rowing oars and foot pedals is my guess, and all the crap in the cabs is my guess.

The customer can get joystick controls if they don't feel like having a workout with the oars. I have had some older customers like the SJC controls because its easier on there joints.


As far as the cabs being stone age. 5" LCD panels is far from it. I think it just comes down to the customers being stone age.
