Hey eveyone, Last year we purchased a cat 302.5c. It has ben an amazing asset to our company. We have made may bedrock armor stone walls since we have had it and it has lifted all of the stones that we have thrown at it at a fully extended length (over the side as well). You do have to move very slow, but it works. We`are now thinking of getting a thumb, do you guys think getting a thumb for this small of machine would be pointless? We do alot of stone setting with it, but i dont know if the stones we use would be to big for the thumb to handle. And before you start bashing me for getting a small machine the reason we did so was becasue of access restriction between buildings, and we wanted a standard ts machine since the 303cr we demoed didnt handle stones nearly as well. Thanks for your input!!
