Going back for more? Looking at IP auction results you are more likely to see 10-11k. Some nice appearing 06 models similiar equipped could not bring 15,500

I was giving you a hard time.:) You could get a Takkie for that price.
I hate Takkies. There great machines ton of power big cabs but i absoultly hate the way they ride. I just wanna punch someone in the face after i run one. If they rode better yeah but cant stand the ride.

But you also drive a 953? Someday someone is going to take a VTS and put it on a Takkie so the ride will be nice.(and a boat load of sound deadening material)

Im being dead honest with you the 953 rides nicer. I just hate when your in a takkie and you go over a curb or if your on asphalt or concrete and hit a rock OMG feels like the machine just got droped from 10 feet in the air.

No offence, but you are a pussy!! :laugh:

I just spent 3 days in my TL130 with a 4000 pound loaded hopper bucket making over 60 trips across gravel and compacted grindings and I ain't complaining, I'm loving the undercarriage!
