    They need to work harder on visibility out of the front door. Go look at the photo from inside the cab, on the right side there's a pillar there that I'm sure doesn't need to be there. Gonna have to work a little harder than that to get my vote. IMO, the door should be completely glass, no pillars, no nothing. Cat and Bobcat have some of the best designed doors I've seen, completely minimalist to provide the most visibility through the door. Visibility to the tires looks average, but not that great. I guess that's what you get when you buy a Deere/NH style vertical lift machine.

    I watched the video......they even give you a free New Holland sticker on side of the machine for more brand recognition. I'd have to sit in the cab to actually feel/see if the improvements are what they say on the visability issue. Sure dolled that baby up with some chrome though.

    I got to see this skid steer at the Farm Science Review. New Holland has always made a good skid steer. I personally don't think there that bad to see out of. I have sit in many of the other brands and could not tell that much of a difference in view.

    Looks great in the cab, nicer layout for the heat but it needs a beer holder:laugh: Gotta love those rims, they wont look to shiny after a job. They at least did do something about the cab, its about time. Can wait to demo one of those.....:clapping:
