    Your idiotic post really doesn't warrant a response, but your credibility is totally shot based on your comment regarding a broken back. Put down the crack pipe...and back up slowly...the ASV (now Terex) is a lot of things, but it doesn't ride rougher than a 289c.

    6 thousand hours on 25 years old might make a difference if thats the case. Only heard good things about ASV/terex

    There are some areas that ASV is suseptable, but the ride is not one of them, saying that the ASV is rough compared to a CTL (even if it has torsion bars) is crazy. Even if its a 4810 era ASV they still ride like a nice.

    I was once over heard an old timer saying that a new skid steer he used was "junk" because it kept stalling, turns out he didn't know why the rabbit light was always on the monitor display.

    Usually 95% of the time it's the junky operator in the seat.

    I saw this post yesterday and dismissed the poster as a nutter! The only things he picked as a problem asv have no issues with. Ride - no they are the best in the market not even an oposition sales guy is dumb unuf to claim that and stalling - the only way to stall one is to charge the pile or if it has an issue with the anti stall valve because they are sitted with anti stall!
