    Haha, I just saw this on the forconstructionpros email newsletter. I wish I knew where they were testing/unveiling these...

    I wrote at first that I didn't see very much Cat in this, but then... looking again... I can see some similarities. Does this mean Cat's also working on the smaller C-series? Remember the SR-70 and SR-80 came right before the C-series Cats came out... wonder if these machines are the "precursors" for the 216C-259C? Hmm...

    Yeah, looks like around the S185 size. ASVs typically don't get much dump angle, so I could see maybe 32" of reach, but probably not too much more. The geometry looks a bit like Cat's in some ways, and given the placement of the lift cylinder it doesn't look like the hinge pin will move too much farther away from the machine from where it is now.

    If it could generate a reach in the mid 30's that would be excellent. The loader arms look a little light considering how close to the rear hinge pin that the lift arms are located.

    Interesting.

    Looks alot like a PT80 hood, loader lower, and a the cab off of a new PT100.

    This thing is all ASV. Next up is the ASV designed Mini Hoes.

    Can't wait for ConExpo.

    Here you go a couple of close up pics. Very nice looking machines. Look indentical to what my dealer showed me in his brochures a month ago. Build quality looks good, cab is nice and roomy and comfortable. Machine looks like a pt 60 and a Bobcat S185 got busy together. If the prices that my dealer gave me last month are acurrate, and i dont end up doing projects in different countries i will be buying one or two of these for the parking garage work we do.

    I'm really interested in seeing one of these up close and personal. I guess it will be at ConExpo. What's going to be interesting, is that the Terex dealer here, is also the Case and Takeuchi dealer.
