Alright know-it-alls, please enlighten me on the difference I would experience between operating a 2006 cat 304 or 305 cr vs the same in a ccr? I've got to move up the food chain a tad from the 27U in order to move hemispherical septic tank shells that weigh about 2500lbs. The spider doesn't work so great for carrying and moving at the same time :| On a side note: the Takeuchi TL130 that I bugged you about for opinions, morphed into a TL140 (ad said TL130 but when I got there I thought, crap that TL130 is a large machine - until I noticed the TL140 sticker (it was night time)) . Got it for $9K! It's been great so far aside from one chaffed drive motor hose that I had to replace. A wee bit small for the dump trailer don't ya think?
