    What are the main differences between the T180 & T190?
    Found a nice one owner T180 w/ 1500hrs, joysticks for $16k obo. Based off the specs it should handle my 2k pnd sandbag attachment with no problem, great size for running a brush mower for cutting the vacant lot contract I have etc. I would get a cab front door to use when running mower.
    How does this one check out fellas?

    One is a radius lift and the other is a vertical lift machine. Other then that they are pretty much the same machine. We have owned both and like both of them. The vertical lift/t190 machine will lift higher which is good for loading in tall trucks. The radius lift machine will lift out away from the machine further, for example loading pallets on a truck will be easier with the radius machine/t180.

    No problem! I was thinking you were looking for something a little bit bigger. I don't know what the weight of your sandbagging unit is. If I remember correctly the t180/190 would just barely lift a pallet of retaining wall blocks, but would not lift a full pallet of caps.

    Sandbag attachment weighs approx 800# empty and around 1800-2000# loaded, (filling 20 bags) depending on moisture content of sand.

    Bobcat in my book means "run".
