    Here are some pictures. The Army backhoe is a JCB. Only the Army would buy that. It will go fast but you cant see out of it. Ironically it had a 4 in 1 but you could not see the bucket from inside that thing.

    The other is the 315D I am checking out

    The attachment is a curb grinder I thought was cool and the other is the super high flow available for CASE skid steers. I will post more. The camera I used I have to resize my wifes camera I don't so be patient.

    Nice pictures, that JCB is the ugliest thing I have ever seen. I thought I saw one that Case did in the pictures taken from HEF did you snap any of that?

    I am not sure I have not got to all the pictures yet but the CASE is like a backhoe not whatever the JCB is. The CASE had like 4 cameras so you could see. It looked more like something you could actually use.

    Check out the skid steer. This was really something. I am being sarcastic.

    That JCB is ugly but it probably costs millions and the gov't will be stupid enough to buy one. I may get used once in awhile but still costs tax payers thousands :nono:

    Never been to a equipment show but I imagine its a place you want to keep your credit card and check book left at the hotel room and enough money in your wallet for lunch :laugh:

    Good point but sometimes that is not enough. I have an RPO being faxed to me from Wheeler CAT on a small grader, laser ready. The machine is a Mauldin/PSI grader. I am anxious to see the numbers. The grader is very nice. The Noram grader is also a looker with a dealer in Utah. We'll see.

    Agreed, I would rather have the suitcase weights bolted to the exterior. I think someone got a little too creative.
