    15 degrees is all manufacturers warrant their engines to.

    Did anyone catch what was on top of that Bobcat's radiators? Looked like another cooler with a box around it.

    Was it just me or did the front tire on the camera side looked really low on air. Prolly not the safest thing to put tons of weight of the machine on a low tire like that.

    Being a hooklift, you would have though that they would have tried to get the container closer to the ground.

    Considering the way the loader pins creak when he lifts the rear, I'm sure the tire is just from lack of maintenance too. Sometimes they are run soft to make it easier to balance the machine on 2 wheels.
    Of courseifhewasmy operator I'd have fired him for scrubbing the tires b4 he ever got the ass end in the air
