    I can't believe my eyes, now they are adding electronics into the new models!


    Well at least they didn't change the overall machine, why bother changing something that doesn't break? And I do like the paint job.

    I'm not so up on the paint scheme(white paint? - not so much...). I was looking for more specs on them. Hopefully they brought the cab to the new millennium specs...

    They had these listed in the latest issue of compact equipment, but not on Taks website so i thought it was a screwup. I like the new colors better than my 140. I really wish they would redesign them so they would fit in a 7' garage door. Couple concrete guys i know want Tk's but SOL if they cant grade a garage floor.

    I never unsderstood that, it's just a garage floor, 20 feet long by 30 feet wide, the skid steer guys out here just use a walk behind loader, even with lots of head room.
