    My john deere skid steer gives me a code F9P9 which says park brake output shorted to ground, what does this mean?

    I cant really comment on the new Series 3 machines. The original 400 series machines had some bright stars namely the 440, 450 and 465, some average machines 430, 410 and some dim stars 420, 435 and 445. The Series 3 machines have addressed the 420, 435 and 445 . They are now turboed all the way across including the 430 which resulted in a lower torque rating but I must believe an over all better performer. The 445 had many things going for it but at my elevation it has to have a turbo and they did not until Tier 3. The loader arms are back to being 95XT type. I had an 85XT and it was the worst performing CASE machine I had run. I complained so much they practically gave me a 95XT in exchanged. I quite my bittching.

    So I guess I would feel good going head to head with any machine with the 440, 450 and 465 assuming equal class machines. If I had to use some of the dim listed machines I would not be as confident, especially against Deere which I believe has a similiar concept on building skid steers as CASE does.

    More than you wanted to know?
