Sorry this is all i had time to take pics of today.
I like this new CTL from Komatsu
Looks like they want to sell some equipment this year.
I'll add a couple more pics of ETW's truck tomorrow, I had wanted to head back down again today and maybe get some more pics of some of the new equipment. The new Kubota 080 is a monster, the Bobcat S330 looked neat but those guys were less than talkative as were the Case guys. I swear I stood looking the CX50 over for maybe 10 minutes and not one of those lazy jack @sses asked if I had any questions, I can't say anything bad about the Cat guys or any of the other exhibitors that were at the show, well the one guy from JCB was a royal PITA with his "suggestions" for what "HE" would buy. Sorry for the rant. Overall it was a real eye opener for me.
BTW it was nice to meet you Jason.
I thought that the Earth Turf and Wood truck was outstanding. Did it win the competion?
i don't know who one. my question is how does he see his switch and go body with that aluminum box behind the cab?
You can operate the system from 2 places.........inside the cab or along side the truck (about 6' forward the rear axle). The controller is a "plug and play" and you can plug in in those 2 locations. With the box behind the cab you have to use your mirrors but your visability is limited.
i want the dump. please santa i've been very good.
Mckee, I wondered that myself. I have a hooklift with incab and outside controlls as well, but I still look back when I'm pulling to make sure its lining up on the rollers correctly. Not sure if Jarrod has a pto or electric, but I know I would rahter be in the cab picking boxes with my foot on the gas. Regardless, it is an original setup, and I truly give credit where it's needed.
The systems is electric and seems to work fine. With the toolboxes behind the cab you just have to rely more on the side mirrors when backing up to align the bodies up right before you lift them on. After you do it for a while you get the hang of it.
I didn't realize so many people were taking pics of the truck, good grief. You guys have more than I do.
From what I've heard it did win the competition.
