    Yup, those are Rexroths, same ones I have in my Cat, and if those are E/H, mine are definitely E/H, just like I suspected all along.

    Yea they look just like the CAT handles. I think this will help Deere out with their sales.

    Ron, you don't necessarily have E/H in your machine. Those are the standard sticks in B series Cat's, our 277B had them and I know for damn sure that wasn't E/H. I'm pretty sure E/H wasn't released on BII series machines, but I could be wrong.

    I have my predictions for Deere's E/H, but I don't want to start a war. That's all I'm going to say.

    It has got to be better than what they have now. I am a servo guy and always have been but I never thought that Deere put as much into their control system as they needed to. This system should be a step forward. If I recall qps had issues with the Deere control system and cited it as a reason not to buy an otherwise solid machine. It should be interesting to to see how close to the bullseye they came on their E/H controls.

    I agree, the new system should be much better than what Deere has provided in the past. I suppose time will tell.

    Are they going to change the rest of the cab so you can get in and out of it? I do not understand why they have not changed it yet, I know a few people who passed on the Deere because of the enclosed cab.

    i agree it is a real pain to get into and out of, you kinda have to do a little dance then fall into the seat. it doesnt bug me though because once your inside its a great machine.

    Definitely a solid contender, I didn't care for the H or CASE pattern...but the response with the old system wasn't that bad...I was impressed to tell the truth....the thing put power to ground for sure....I would have bought it but it had a plastic safety lever and no cuphoulder..(my daily jab at KSSS):laugh:
