    Is that the new name for the 453?

    Bobcat has lost it.

    One day they may come into the 21st century.

    The only good thing about that little 453/S70 is how much it can squeeze through some insanely tight spots, but it sucks at driving on sand. I'd rather be in an ASV RC-30 any day.

    While it does appear that they just rebadged it with a new name, we have had outstanding sucess using these little machines. They take an incredible amount of abuse and can move lots of material in the 44 inch configuration. We love our two, no one makes a tire machine this small that packs as much punch, not even close. We still love our Bobcats.
