    If you were a mechanic which machine would you want to work on.

    Couldn't stay away, had to take a few pictures,

    There she is in all her glory, less the bucket and glass door.

    This was sitting near by. The mechanic said it works. Early 1920's

    The mechanic slipped me a Cat key and let me take it for a spin. I just got done running the 450 a little earlier, the MTL is so smooth compared to a CTL. The H-control works great, the demo I tried didn't have H-control and I was a squirrel with it.

    The cab on the CASE rolls forward exposing the entire bathtub. Offering excellent access to the inside of the machine. I wish you'd drop the CASE off so we can be spared these oneside pics and your narrative which always seems to be totally lacking the entire story. I feel like I am watching CNN. I strongly suggest that any issues you have with this machine, that you keep them to yourself. I will remind of them at every opportunity.:waving:

    Oh my gosh, I knew you would like that jab, but I didn't think you would respond that fast. I couldn't stop laughing as I was reading your response. I had to read it twice because I was laughing so much.

    Um, on a Case you don't ever need to work on it just bring it back five years later and get another. Rise and repeat.

    Sorrrry, had to get my kick in too.

    In that case (pun intended) isn't it about time you replaced that 5+ year old XT.
