    Ultimate Hardscaper Skid Steer

    My baby, 2006 A300, will pick up full pallets of material to the top of its reach cycle. Flip a switch to go between all wheel steer and skid steer mode.

    It has the new joystick pilot controls. I still like the older controls for grading, because I have the most hours logged in that configuration. The joysticks respond a little slower, but I think what you gain in ease of operation is worth the trade off.
