    Here is it...
    cab is sweet but it seems like there's an awful lot of glass in front of you, vision is much improved, new hydraulics are very touchy, but super responsive, now lets see what the track machine has to offer...

    If the boom is raised how do you open the door?:)

    That door should give great visibility. Are you thinking of buying or just demoing? Does MacAllister have any MTL's yet?

    End of July on the MTL, I have a 257B that has been a gutless wonder and will look to trade up to a large frame 277C..the small frame MTL will be called a 257B2....updated but not the same as the new C series...

    If there is an emergency that requires you to get out of the machine when the boom arms are up, there are two handles on the inside of the door that removes the glass (but not the door), allowing you to escape.

    Hmm, that's what I had said last summer as well. Wonder what the market will say about this in time.

    The hydraulics have three settings to adjust the sensitivity. I'm not sure how to adjust it, but the OMM with the machine should tell you how. I'm guessing it is set to the most sensitive. I've been in one of the machines that was the opposite, but it was set that way.

    I'm guessing that he meant how do you run the machine with the door open like some machines can, not in case he needed to bail.:)
