The company got put on the back burner when my wife had pregnacy complications. Everything is going good now, so i got my fire back to get the sandbagging/flood barrier company rolling. I contacted the attachment company today to order the sandbag attchment and 3pallets(6k bags per pallet) of sand bags. Flood season is upon us and Hurricane season is fast approaching.

Glad to hear the 300 is working out for you. Did you gravitate to the SV300(vertical lift instead of radial lift machine) because of your experience running New Hollands? You were brave to go for the E/H controls but I wonder if guys aren't giving them a chance?

Stuve- went with the vertical lift so that we can put decent loads on tri axle dumps with it. Certain jobs we can't always bring a loader or excavator on to load. The L 175's are great machines for various specialty jobs we do , but they can't load tri axles efficiently.

As for the E/H controls , I have found no lag whatsoever except for a slight bit when lowering the arms and curling the bucket up ( ie after dumping the bucket into a truck etc) the bucket curl function takes half a second to engage. Not enough to worry or bother me at all

The new ones we are trying on ssl #2 are bossgrips reccomended to us by our tire suppliers. We have tried almost all the tires out there and so far the galaxies have been the best. In the 2000 combined hours on the 2 nh skid steers we have only had one flat that a tire plug fixed. And that's working around concrete, rebar and wire mesh daily. The original galaxies lasted 800+ hours on ssl#1, and the worst was some Chinese brand I can't remember now that we're completely worn down by 90 hours of use.
