This was my first trip in a Bobcat and I can say that I would quit the business if I had too depend on it too make a living. The controls were like I stepped back decades in time. Kinda like running one of there row pedal skid steers. LOL The Komatsu I normally use was not available so they talked me into this machine.This was not a wore out rental machine either. The job was digging an area out for a stamped concrete patio at a restaurant. The area was surrounded by sloped walkways,aluminum railing,and the back side had huge windows.Oh and there was a flag pole as well. Couple this with the fact it had too be done at night and I got pinched on time because of the weather and had too prep,seed and straw 3 lots that day as well as touch up the beds then rush my equipment too the job and dig all night. I was an absolute nervous wreck before the night was over. I just do not understand how people would actually by a machine like this. Komatsu,Takeuchi and Cats are like butter with there controls. Not this thing. I finished the job but I think I aged a few years. I hope if everything works out right I will not have too rent again. Enough whining.
