Drove or rather, held on to a JCB 1110 last week.

I had the experience of driving a JCB 1110 track skid steer last week and rough ride doesn't beging to describe it. It weighs 10k lbs w/the tracks being 17'' wide. The salesman told me it would be fine for residential landscaping but when I saw this sasquatch I knew that was out the window. It didn't have the servo controls we've come to love soo much, instead it had the foot controls like a NH. It had plenty of power from an 90h/p perkins diesel. I guess once you've operated Cats all the rest seem passe' by design and ride. The Cat's new 257 track steer is miles ahead of this beast with comfort and ergonomics.
Conservatism is about independence and self-reliance.
Liberalism is about dependence and reliance on the enlightened few who know what's best for the masses.
Firearms are the equalizer.

Failure's hard, but success is far more dangerous. If you're successful at the wrong thing the mix of praise, money and opportunity can lock you in forever.

I agree Cat & ASV rule the class, they are so smooth. Unfortunatly the other once use rigid undercarriages and tend to shake your bones and rattle your teeth.
