My machine arrived and went through it and made sure it was what I ordered. The salesman and I preset the controls at least initially. There was an update done to the E/H which is said to mimic the response and feel of pilots. My machine received that before it left the factory. The feel of these controls is very nice and with the amount of available presets its safe to say that you can configure these machines to about any operator's liking. Once I have more time on the machine I will talk more about the machine's control system when I have more time on it. Initially though I was very impressed. The hyd. metering system which is said to be what the update does is very impressive so far. The grapics are different for 2012, very cool. I left the machine at the CASE dealer, CAT will be installing my machine control into this machine for the laser grader attachment in a couple weeks and the sign shop will install my graphics on it. When that is done I will post some pictures of the machine.
