    I finally got a close up peek of it, what a real nice (clean) machine!

    So far the old man likes it, it's pretty hard to tip over the sides, so he's impressed.

    It might have been a temporary issue with the server, they are all still in my PB account.

    I really like how BMI did the buckets, they have that nice curve in them for picking up logs, even my old man loves them, he may not need to spend the extra money for "saw-toothing" on the thumb, but it's still a thought.
    Only downside is that there are 2 bolts that hold the wedge from the coupler, we always ask for one, but upside is that they thread right into the bulk head (with no nuts behind them) because of issues with clearance, so that makes it real easy.
    The machine hydraulic oil runs pretty hot, Dad was a little worried, but it might just be a break-in period and he says the engine noise is somewhat loud, but look how lose the seat is to the engine, Hitachi built this model like a mini excavator, so you get what you have.

    Now the biggest challenge is ahead of us, keeping that cab clean, the old POS PC-60's both have actual grass growing in the cab with it's own Eco-system, I think it's on the endangered list, I'm not sure. [​IMG]
