Terex PT100G Forestry and Kubota SVL90

I went to the GLTE trade show today in Grand Rapids, Michigan and they had a brand new PT100G on the floor. This thing is a beast in person. They also had a new Kubota tracked skid steer. Its nice but I never thought i would say this but the cab is way to wide. Its like sitting in the middle seat of a car and trying to see whats along side of you.

That's their forestry version. 45gpm @ 3800psi out of a variable displacement load sensing piston pump is pretty impressive.

Look at how open that undercarriage is on the Kubota, you can really get a shovel in there to clean out.

The kubota undercarriage will hold so much dirt, it will act like a counter weight. I like that saving the customer money...Smart..

I prefer an open U/C like that Kubota anyday over a more enclosed one like Bobcat. The U/C on my old T300 would just jam up and collect mud, and you can only get so much with a spade. The open style like that and what Deere and TK use takes a lot longer to fill up, and when it does you can shovel it out. Access to cleaning it out also helps to prevent it from freezing overnight in the winter.

If you look at the first picture you can just see a black plate that extends past the loader arm where the connections would normally be. Their in the same spot just "armored" to keep them from getting broke.

Is this the first time you actually like about Kubota equipment

It looks like the radiators tilt backwards, really interesting have to see if Kubota CTLs take off. Have you seen any at Avenue screw ?
