    Not sure of the model but we can bank on the guy being the most comfortable in the Cat, right?:p

    Looks like a 289C, man that Cat sure dug in fast though, but just at the end, the Bobcat was struggling.

    I'm gonna get flamed for saying this, and I really don't mean it as an excuse, but I'm wondering if I hear one of the machines in high gear... the T630 doesn't have two-speed and that specific 289C might not, but I still think I hear something funny. That being said, I don't know what the drive motors of the T630 sound like since I've never heard them.

    Whaddaya expect, I'm an engineer and everyone knows engineers are lamos. :p

    Only if it were a Case or a Deere. Heaven forbid if it was a Cat. It wouldn't be able to even outdrag or lift or push over the 289! :laugh:

    Now an L48... that's a serious piece of machine. :weightlifter:

    I am more amazed that the Cat was able to spin the tracks. Usually Cat's anti-work valve keeps them from spinning. I know that Cat couldn't of been in high gear or it really wouldn't of spun the tracks. Very impressive of the Bobcat but like hooking two trucks together with a chain it doesn't mean anything.

    It's not so difficult on the C-series -- it's actually fair easy.
