    Talked too the factory reps about it and I soon hope too verify the actual aux flow. They have only sold 20 of them and as soon as the get back from the show I will take a trip too Pendegrass where the machines are dist from. If it will do 26 gpm it will really help my mulcher.

    Nobody else is excited about the 260? I think it's a huge step for TK.

    I agree, i like the looks of the machine. I am also happy to see tak get serious about their interior and console info center. I have a 2012 and its just as pathetic as the first one i bought in 2003.

    Tak is making a big step forward in there whole line starting with CTL's. I feel confident in saying that excavators will be next. I prefer simple however the changes are a welcome sight to me. The tak guys will be back from the show Monday so I hope too get some info soon. I contacted the mulcher manufacturer and they did the calculations on what the adv flow(TB260) should spin my head rpm wise so It will be a real world test compared too the KX161. I hope too have it dropped off for a demo soon but the dealer only has one and it is an open cab.

    I get the whole 'rugged simplicity' mantra but TK really needed to bring it to the new millennium and from what the 260 looks like they are on their way. The standard features it has is awesome. I like the 153 but the 260 would be nice.

    I agree, simplicity has a place. However its a fine line between simplicity and outdated. I wish they were faster in bringing improvements to their entire excavator lineup.

    I have a heated seat in my TR320. While my asss never gets cold by itself, if your asss is warm usually so is the rest of you. I like it, could I like without it, sure but its kinda like the heated steering wheel on my wife's Buick, It just makes you feel good.

    Spent some with the guys form Tak corporate today on the phone. Interesting for sure. Unfortunately the machine is in demand right now so dealer supply is limited too none.LOL Gonna meet with one of the main tech guys next week at the ag show where they will have a machine.
