    They are a Terex skid, but they are made in India and only sold there. The local Case dealer did tell me that Terex was working on skid steer loaders though and they would be released sometime next year or so.

    I actually looked it up and it has a drive system similar to the old Hydra Mac skid steers and they only make one model. It looks like Terex has a joint venture that is 70/30 for the Indian market to make backhoes, this skid and a large roller.

    Kind of like Toyota with 522 subsidiaries, or Doosan, or Mitsubishi, or......

    I forgot CAT too...they've "aquired" 20 companies in the last 19 years in 13 countries.

    It is pretty rough looking. Only Indian equipment I'm really aware of is Mahindra tractors.

    snicker, snicker


    I have heard about the Terex wheel machine and just don't see the upside when you compare a Terex version to any of the current wheel brands.
