I find EH much more precise in H than ISO. Splitting the drive seems more precise for me but its all what your used to.

Im used to hand and foot controls, i don't think anything else could be as precise. With hanf and foot the machine is doing exactly what i am and at the exact same time. Im going to try to adapt to pilot because its easier for the employees.

All this EH, H and iso talk has got me lost lol. What type is my Kubota? Is eh electric over hydraulic lije the cat? The cat has the least responsive controls i ever used.

You should have checked the settings on the controls on the cat. You can go into the settings and change the responsiveness

This is true. The bobcats you can change them too. But I have the sensitivity all the way up and got used to it. Our S770 was adjusted down and I felt like I was waiting for it so I cranked that all the way up too.

I asked the cat dealer about adjusting the sensitivity and they made it seem like they were as good as it would get and it was big deal to adjust them, it sounds like his lack of knowledge lost Ohio Cat a sale...he also acted like i was crazy when i asked about upgrading to triple flange rollers.

Plus i feel like i shouldnt have to set the machine up to quickly respond to the controls, thats just how they should be from the factory. Ive ran a few B series that were awful and a couple C series that felt the same, the D felt better but still slow. You would think Cat eould address the setting before they get to the dealer because they are for sure losing sales because of it.

If someone else demoed the machine before you they may have changed the settings. When my 299d was delivered today the first thing I did was set up the control responsiveness to where I like it. I think you'll be happy with the kubota, we have owned a lot of their tractors and mowers over the years and only true complaint is their parts are expensive but they always stood behind their products
