    So I have a 246C with 400 hours or so. I had cat adjust the sensitivity to the highest setting as I do not have the AMICS. I can shake the bucket and the arms quick enough to throw dirt out.

    The problem is that the tilt function cycle times seem very slow, both to curl and to tilt. It may be that I'm comparing it to a 226b2, or there could be something wrong The other problem that I have occasionally is that when curling the bucket it will stutter for a cycle or two and then stop suddenly.

    Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions for these problems?

    It's like that on all the bigger models too, my brother's 277C is just painfully slow compared to the Takeuchi I used to own.

    Your comparing an E/H machine to a pilot controlled machine. I don't think you will see the same performance from the E/H as you do in the pilot.
