Cat dealer just dropped off a new 247b2 to demo. Brougt over my buddies 06t190 to do a little side by side comparison. The cat operates/rides like dream compared to the bobcat. My concern is the lack of lift of the 247. I understand radial vs vertical lift but when we stacked a couple of boulders on top of each other and tried to lift them the comparison stopped. The bobcat did it (fully lifted) at idle and the 247 at full throttle would not even curl them back off of the ground. Bobcat ron or others, my question is will the 247 lift a full pallet of wet sod or a full pallet of landscape blocks off the back of the delivery truck??? We will continue to compare over the weekend, but have only snow to play in and can't do dirt comparisons. Any feed back appreciated.
