    the only problem i see with them is they might tip easily with alot of weight in the bucket going that high.

    I believe the name is Bulldog. CASE has their competetive specs on their website.

    I get this wierd feeling that it's a Daewoo skid steer, there was a Doosan excavator in the back ground, same paint and almost the same looks, I like the telescopic boom, although it's a little scary for all out demo work.

    There is a dealership in my area that sells the Bulldog skidsteers. Looks like a neat design but I have yet to see one out anywhere working. It is a basically a extend a hoe style design. It owuld be handy loading trucks but just another wear point to fix and keep greased up. I wonder also if Daewoo has a hand in these. You see several of there machines in the background.

    There was another company last year that had the same idea, but thy have disappeared, I'll bet my third nut that they were bought by Doosan and the Locust name is a merger acquisition.
