    Let's see how this one goes. I've been a part of these things in the past and they can be pretty powerful when you have alot of discussion going on. Believe it or not alot of industry peers go through the very same things and it's comforting to know you are not alone.

    If time permits, and the weather cooperates I might be able to take them to a project that we have locally. Mother nature has not been all cooperative, so one thing at a time.

    What machines are you getting? I think I may pick up a new machine for 2014, looking at the SR220 to replace our 2006 440. I assume your going Cat and I have a few friends here that swear the the cats are better than the case, but running both I like Case. I don't have more than a few hours in Cats though. Decisions decisions!

    I'm not sure yet but I want to make a decision here this week. I've got it narrowed down to a few at this point.

    The problem with our industry is that no small frame track skid loader will lift what we need it to lift, so you are forced to go to a larger frame machine for the lift capacity. And trust me we've looked and test run a ton of them.
