Ron...with all due respect...you change machine brands as much as most people change their underwear You may have owned damn near every brand out there, but I don't think you're qualified to make a blanket statement like that until you've owned an ASV machine. I know that I can't speak for all ASV owners out there, and while I don't think ASV has the best fit and finish out there, the quality has been just fine. BTW...the only engine having trouble was the 2.2L turboed engine. Unless, CAT has been having major problems with their Backhoes, telehandlers, large frame skids, etc., I think the 4.4L engines, the 3.3L engines (Mitsubishi not even CAT) and the naturally aspirated 2.2L engines have been pretty good at least from what I've heard. In a year you'll be bagging the Takeuchi for something. What happens when you run out of OEMs to run? Bobcat again?
