I agree that having these features available is always good. The speed sensitive ride control is not one of them. Having the ability activate or deactivate at the operators choosing is better. Speed does not always dictate when RC is appropriate. We are now seeing some of the other benefits of EH some as tool positioning, and auto level up and down. Neither of these are necessary or may not even be helpful (I never use my auto leveling) but with EH its relatively easy to do. I am of course biased but the CNH cab I find much more thought out that the CAT cab. The fine wire makes for better visibility, placing the air intake behind the cab is better, AC is stronger, easily pulling out the windows and putting them back is a big plus. I give CAT credit for making a better cab a priority, but it is no longer the standard. I have never had much of an issue grading with torsion, I had it on my VTS and the 279C had it, the increased comfort would likely be worth adjusting to the "weirdness" of the torsion system. Hopefully CAT has put a pattern changer in all machines regardless of whether it is equipped with AMICS or not. That was bs in the C series. A pattern changer is no charge with CNH. I also would hope they found the solution to the C series death wobble. I have not actually ran a D series yet but I look forward to it.
