    Sweet! That looks like a win-win for Case and the military. .:usflag: :weightlifter: :usflag:

    My question is why do they all come with hydraulic hammers? Looks like they just bought 3,400 hammers! On the + side, there will probably be some cheep gov. surplus hammers in a few years!

    Huh thats funny we just got 8 Bobcats with GP bucket, forks, and augur's. Our TOE for equipment is CAT rollers, dozers, and scrapers. Deere excavators, and graders. Case loaders. Bobcat Skid sters. International dump trucks, and low boys. Oshkosh MTBR 7 tons, AM General 5 tons, and forgot who makes the Deuce and a half. But I do know most of it is getting sold off and replaced.

    But the funny thing is they lost the loader contract (to CAT) with the Marines and resigned their contract with the Army
