    Pulled in to my CAT dealer this morning and they had just unloaded two new C series skidsteers ...jump in one of them...don't remember the model....78 HP I think and drove it around the yard...cab...wow....hydraulics...super smooth and responsive, makes me want to go back to a wheel machine instead of a MTL....not under working conditions but first impressions are...thumbs up...I forgot, vision around the cab is so much better then my 257B...I see a trade in my future....gotta have the pressurized cab with A/C this time...

    Good to hear from you again QPS. The C series seems to be impressing those who have seen them. I haven't had a look yet, need to get ahold of our sales guy and figure out when they hit the lots out here.

    If they're out on the lots... maybe it's time for me to go look at the first non-prototype version of them. :D

    I'm so bloody excited for these machines to saturate the market. Just deliver, Cat, deliver!

    I can tell you that I'll look at everybody's first, but the improved vision, cab and controls is a knockout punch in my opinion...lets see how the track machines perform...I think it was a 272C, I took a pic with my camera phone but it is terrible quality...
