    Its got to be old if its a Clark/Bobcat machine its gotta be older than you Junior.

    I think it would be qucker to hand fall trees than that skid steer can take trees down.

    Yep their biggons. I've seen the 943 and the 963 up close. They're huge!
    I'd like to have one for Snow Removal. Probably a 963 would be nice
    The 963 is the highest horsepower at 105hp Perkins Turbo Diesel.
    (Only succeeded by the 2006 Gehl 7810 and Mustang 2109 with 115hp Perkins) :eek: :eek:
    I'd like to see the 980 up close, that thing's got a 4,000lb ROC, and weighs 15,000lbs! :eek: :dizzy: :weightlifter::usflag: :cool2:
    My uncle saw one at the dealer in 1991, who couldn't believe something that big could be a Skid Steer.
    What I think's crazy is 1 yard bucket was the standard bucket size!


    Jeez, I hate to see the Light Material bucket!

    I knew it was older than me.. :hammerhead: I'd like to know how old..

    But no, GR, its not quicker, for pine that thing would be great, it'd work on hardwood, but not a real big one. From the looks of there set up and the wood setting there I'd guess they haul mostly pulp wood..

    I tried Ritchie Specs couldn't find it and they never have sold one so that machine model must be rare they have auctioned off couple 1075 machines.

    The machine must be 1980 or somewhere around that year.
