I would like too start this post with saying that Metrac turned a negative situation(the John Deere demo) into a positive one.As a company they recognized a problem and handled it.I however did not purchase the JD but it was strictly the machine and not the Dealers fault. I also decided too forgo any additional demos for different reasons but I ended up with TL 140 cab and air. I really felt at ease with the Pilot controls. I just finished prepping and laying a 30k sq foot sod job and it coupled with my Tractor made the job effortless.It handled pallets of sod easily. The machine, a Bradco 36 inch trencher and pallet forks set me back 53k. Of course we all favor what we own but this machine too me is un rivaled price wise. I was looking forward too the Case demo but they wanted a credit app first so it was pretty much the nail in the coffin . I lost my cord to my camera so as soon as I get my new one in I will post some pics. Thanks again Lawnsite and it's wonderful members for all the input about Skidsteers.
