I really am disapointed in it. I guess my expectations were too high. I will list all the faults as best I can. 1. The cab is very hard too get in and out of 2. The door is a royal pain.It has too be closed for it too move and it also has to be closed too access the ign key. 3.The seat belt has a ratchet in it that makes it tighten up and not release and applies alot of pressure on you and if you hit a bump it gets even tighter.The machine will not move without it on and everytime you leave the seat the belt must be reattached befor it will move.No cheating. 4.The aux hyd control is actuated by unlocking the right handle and twisting it left and right.Requires quite a fair amount of pressure too move. 5.The noise.It is almost unbearable. 6.The boom moves left and right whenever you apply any pressure.I had a bucket of gravel about eye level and as the ground level changed the bucket swayed left and right. 7.When digging going forward the boom would actually move up as you applied bucket curl too dig. 8. The machine will not back drag with any bucket down force.On flat Ground it will but it will not pull any load. 9.The noise it is unbearable. 10.The machine has no hydraulic power.I pulled up too a pile of dirt and it would not even lift it.The bucket would curl but even then the boom would not lift. 11.The machine has to be run at wot for it to operate without stalling. 12. The Ac condensor is just waiting to be knocked off. 13.All the controls are just so raw.After using the Takeuchi it was like stepping back too horse and buggy days These are just a few of the many things about it that are sub standard. I was somewhat critical of the TL 140 but after using this machine there is no comparison. I actually can not conceive how somone would purchase this thing. I have not found one thing it does well yet except lift more weight than other machines it's size.The noise is unbearable.You cannot even hear the backup beeper it is so loud. And the seat belt really got tight on me.Very poor design. The cab is tiny.Reminded me of crawling in a Barrel. I do not want to offend anybody that owns one .I am only giving my opinion. I have a 26k sgft sod job too start tomorrw so I will be on it most of the day.We will see.
