    It works great when we run it. We just have been keeping the 315 and mini really busy.

    Along with the condo harbor job we had to backfill a poured concrete seawall in development. Used the t300 to backfill around 4,000 tons of stone and the mini to dig in hundreds of pipes through the new seawall. The first pics are of the cat we got to demo. Then the mini on the island doing all of the undergrounds.

    Here are a few more from the new development putting in pipes with the mini, backfilling with the t300 and using the 315 to drive boatdock 8"x16""x16.6' post. Now in the pictures with the 315 the lake level would be almost to the top of the cab. We got in and drove them by land instead of off the barge.

    No that was just a demo for a week, It was really nice but it was hard to get in and out and I want something with more reach. I will just keep my old faithful the 341. It looks better with the T300 anyways:laugh:

    How is your new deere? I have been doing some work in a local factory and man it would be nice to have a little mini with zero tail swing sometimes.

    Yep I doubt your gonna find a cab as easy to get into as that 341 but if your really wanting a zero tailswing then maybe you should see if you can demo a new bobcat 50 they are a little tighter to get in and out opf but the cab is layed out nice

    That's the D series 305? I didn't have hard time getting in and out, but my skinny arse could get out of anything.:)

    I think Cat moved the track contol foot pedal closer to gether on this one... It migh just be me, though.

    Thanks Tom, I am very close friends with my bobcat dealer and once he can get his hands on a E50 I am going to try it out. Great pictures and videos on the E50 by the way, it looks very nice.

    Ya we will do just about all of the undergrounds for the developer. We also will be doing all of the docks, boathouses, and some parking lots with a boat ramp.
