Bobcat s650 sales video

Watch the video (jump to the 1:20 mark). Would you buy a car if the owner took you for a spin at maximum speeds and thrashed you around in it? Must be a new sales technique.

I'm very tempted to send him a message.

Machine looked decent but that guy is clueless! After seeing his email was "rude" or something to that effect I thought he wouldn't care.. Poor machine.

It doesn't "operate just like it did the day it rolled off the showroom floor" anymore!

1400 hrs and it's seen very little use? Wow. I call that 7 pounds of bull sh*t in a 1 pound bag.

You could hear the back up alarm barely screaming 'help'.

The turbo cool down time was impressively absent.

I thought he was going to spin his way to China.

He is just trying to demonstrate the sheer horsepower and torque that thing has. the wheelies just show you how quick the machine is. HA!

before he even started moving, when he shut it off and turned it back on i felt bad for the machine....

I looked but said BC has been sold. I then watched the JCB video of the little loader/backhoe - that guy needs a talking too the way he demo's his equipment. I was going to ask if he was for real but after seeing his footage, pace of business with machines etc I guess so. I just wont be buying from him.
