    Made this from scratch for a co-workers son

    Probably perfect in size for a 7-8 year old or so. I can just barely fit in it at 5'10". Not very comfortable.

    24 volt electric drive system, power Up/Down bed and Power Up/Down plow with manual angle. Runs about 2 hours on a charge and is fairly strong, can push and level little piles of dirt and stone. The bed will dump a heaped load of gravel, got lucky on that one. Total "CAT" theme as you can tell.

    All lights, tail lights, flasher, etc work. Took me a while to do, but it was always what I wished I had as a kid!

    Pictures are before I finished the seat upholstery and such, but you get the idea... Sorry for the phone pictures...

    Looks like Jr. is going to be plowing the driveway this winter. Or at least the sidewalk.

    Right on, that's just what Jr. needs. Welcome to the big leagues and running REAL iron. It says Cat on it, it'll definately outwork that Bobcrap 331 you keep renting. Haha

    Oh yea. You know... Your Bobcat mini. It's a REAL machine.:rolleyes:

    Call me when you learn real controls and run a 40k+ pound excavator.

    Next purchase on my list!

    *DRUMROLL*

    A CAT 330!

    That's about 7x your little Bobcrap.

    CAT 330: 73k pounds
    Bobcrap: 10k?
