    Now Ron we both know the story. The guy was trying to push over a tree and apparently was not happy that there is no tree clause in the CASE warranty.

    Deere, NH, Bobcat Vertical paths and the C Series Cat's will never be able to do that to their loader cylinders!

    That has always been one thing that I hated about radius path loaders, I still like the Cat large frame Radius Path machines better.

    You may or may not bend the cylinders. You might just snap the loader arms. The guy was ramming the machine into a tree. There will be concequences for that on any machine.

    They posted later that they used a crane or something to hold the bucket up while they torched the rods and lowered it.

    That might have been the problem when it really came down to getting them warranty.I'm sure ramming trees wasn't something they would tell Case.

    They should have just taken the pins out and or removed the cylinders and lowered the bucket to load.:rolleyes::usflag:

    I never seen that happen before the guy must have been abusing the machine pretty hard. I'am surprised he could walk after he did that :laugh:

    I did something like that on my Dad's old Mustang 930A with a jack hammer, I "forgot" to pull the point out of the concrete and I pulled the machine into reverse and bent the bucket cylinder like a strand of spaghetti. Dad was pissed. I was happy to go home early.
